Love this bumper! Not too hard to install, I was able to do it by myself. I've already used it for one extraction just a week after installation.

4.0Good looking bumper
First off I had some trouble with the shipping, it was listed as tires with the freight company and they were unable to deliver it to my house because it was on a full size semi.
As for the installation, it really needs color instructions. When you have to make cuts to the rear plastic body panels its impossible to see a white line on a silver part with a black and white photo. Also the entire bumper needs to be able to be adjusted left and right, there is a 1/2" gap on the passenger side and its flush on the other side.
Overall I am happy with this bumper, great price, solid mounting, and good paint.
3.0No option for horizontal alignment.
The bumper doesn’t offer much adjustment. I would of liked if it had the ability to be adjusted horizontally. Vertically it can be adjusted just enough to fine tune its alignment.

Easy bolt on design. Put them on myself and looks great. Only advice, if you have bushwacker aftermarket fender flares, you’re going to have to do some cutting. And hopefully your eye is straighter than mine.

Prefect fit for FJ Cruiser. Looks better and rides better with the weight. Super fast shipping - arrived in one day. Best price too!
