The fit and finish is pretty good, but a lot of hardware didn't fit. When finished it rattled like crazy. Had to modify with rubber insulators I made. The rubber bumper for the bottom of the tire didn't want to go on at all. One nut for one of the bolts that attach the bumper to the frame was welded out of alignment, had to hammer pretty good and use air impact to force it to thread. Contacted the manudacturer, no response back at all. Overall product works and looks good, but had to fight way too much to install, and the manufacturer apparently doesn't care enough to support their customers with a reply.
This is a great value. A quality product at a great price. A few of the nuts were missing from the package, not a real big deal. But I called Olympic products so they could watch this for future orders, they have a every responsive and courteous customer service department.
What's the bumper made out of, it looks like plastic in the photo. Can a trailer hitch be attached?
