    I feel the same way but with shackles and free shipping it seems good. I just found another thread about poor fitment but no more pics. Anyone have real life pics of this without the bay watch style taco?

    Ok. Well I have, just installed it, fits great.
    Soooooo I'm assuming that you're a troll and are reporting someone else's opinion.

    Interesting how the hyperlink you posted leads nowhere... Guess the company's out of business now? :eek:

    Body Armor is garbage. There are much better products out there to spend your hard earned money on.

    Thanks for the info on Body Armor.

    I'm leaning towards Relentless Fabrications or AllPro but I have a ski boat (less than 5k lbs) and none of these bumper manufacturers provide a rated bumper since the DOT approval process is so spendy... :cool:

    Just replaced my stock with a body armor when I was rear ended recently, paid for by the other driver. I just wanted a steel bumper upgrade and the other driver did not want to spend $1K for all-pro etc... or replace with another stock. I can't complain with fitment , seems much more sturdier than factory and weighs a good 100lbs. Not high clearance like others but not needed for my use and I am able to retain my tow package.
