actually, I believe the bumper and side panels worked great. it was the installer aka me that did not have the bolts tight enough. in talking to a friend of mine who lives down in Florida, he stated that for what i went over, it did the job and he should know because he started out back in the 70's off-roading and rock climbing. Would i buy a different bumper, no way at all. i say this because of what i tried to do and it protected the body. my friend that was with me had wished we would have gotten a picture of what i went over that did the damage. the nice thing was that i painted the damage with rust oleum paint and you do not see the damage any more. we believe the first obstacle that I went over did the damage. the third picture is the bottom of the rock slider not the bumper. i will take a new picture tomorrow and post it here. would i recommend this bumper to a person looking for a rear bumper? the answer is very much yes without hesitation.
