Just what they say it is , only down fall was inner frame brackets were not in box , had to fab my own .
Bought this to replace the "bumperettes" and it looks good on the jeep, with that being said it was a "pain" to install. the easy was I already had the gas tank off so I had good access to the bolts and nuts. here's where the quality control issue reared it head the mounting brackets were not paralell with each other or the length of the bumper, I had to have my wife stand on it as i smacked it with a 16lb hammer to try to line them up. I got them close and bolted it up loosely so I could mark the inner bolt holes no easy way to mark the centers so I ended up with oversized holes. I got it all bolted up and tightened up but it's still not exactly paralell with the rear of the jeep. but if you are not to much of a perfectionist it works fine.
Took a long time to install and had to drill new holes into frame. Custom install. If you have a pole barn or garage with tools you shouldn't have any issues. This is not something you could install in an AutoZone parking lot. Looks great and very durable.
So this will replace my stock bumper and hitch? Will it have the same towing capacity as my current hitch?
