I chose this bumper because it was a bolt on, with no cutting, and didn't interfere with the factory tow package. However, upon receiving the bumper, there was no way I could install it without first having it re-powder coated. The finish was awful! It came with an extremely rough, flat black coating that was far from what I expected. You could tell it was slid across the floor of the warehouse. All of the corners were down to bare metal and there were several scratches on it. I figured $350.00 to powder coat it was easier than expending the effort to send it back. If' I'd have known it had a lousy finish, I wouldn't have bought it in the first place.
Most people around here drive trucks with many upgrading their front bumper to this product. When you do both using this brand, you know you did the right thing by the looks and compliments you receive from complete strangers. Mine were painted to match the color of my F-350 and it looks OEM but custom as well.
Pretty easy install except instead of reusing the original bolts holding the original bumper, I used a sawzall and cut off the bolts and replaced with hardened bolts. Faster for me.
This bumper is even better built than it looks in the picture!
This bumper is awesome! I like the way it is built. The install was a little difficult for one person, but I got it done. I took the old one off, centered this one on a motorcycle jack and bolted away. A couple of hours later, it was done. I like the fact that the fog light attachments are solid steel and nothing flimsy. This is a quality piece and looks like it'd deliver some punishment, if hit.
