About Me Auto Enthusiast
It appears solid. Instructions were easy enough for any shade tree mechanic, though I found myself just looking at the picture for most of it. Installation on my TJ wasn't bad, though I had to unbolt the winch plate since you could not access the mounting bolts with the bumper in the way which is a comforting thought that it would be that much harder for someone to try and unbolt and steal! 4 Stars for now since I have not gotten to use it much yet, otherwise it will probably be 5.
