This bumper is constructed of thick 3-inch tubular steel and includes end caps. This bumper is as tough as it looks. Include all necessary hardware.
The tube bumper was a perfect fit. Everything was going great till I started installing the fog lights. The mounting bolts for the fog lights were too small and they snapped off. What I did was finish snapping off the remaining bolts and drilled them out. Then I installed my fog lights with self tapping screws. Other than the fog light mounting bolts, I am very happy with the tube bumper. It has changed the looks of my Jeep! I would recommend this bumper to my Jeep friends. .
I recently purchased the tube bumper with fog light cutouts. I was very impressed with the construction of the product. The fitment was great and made my Jeep look totally different. My only complaint was the fog light mounting screws. The screws were painted and I could not get a bolt started on them. After I got a screw started, I had to use a wrench to tighten them down. The screws were very small and several of them snapped off. I will have to drill them out and install bigger screws if I am going to use my fog lights. Overall, I am happy with the tube bumper and would recommend it to anybody.
Your write-up says Limited Lifetime Warrantee, the downloadable installation instructions specify Limited 90-Day Warrantee. Which is it?
