    Anybody have any bad experiences with Body Armor products? I ordered a set of taillight guards for my 09' DC from Amazon. The fitment guide on Amazon stated that they fit. HA! The instructions were minimal at best and of no help. The instructions stated that "if the mounting brackets did not fit, they could be adjusted with a pair of pliers." I had to use a hammer with some elbow grease to get the mounting brackets flst enough to fit next to the taillight! I don't think I will be purchasing another Body Armor product in the future! :annoyed:

    they also make by far the most horrid bumpers out there. The front bumper makes the truck look like it has a massive underbite.

    basically, yeah never buy anything from them, it's all terrible.

    first thing came to mind- I don't know how much R&D they put into that front plate, but it looks like a middle schooler drew up the plans on a napkin

    though I havent seen anyone post anything about their other products in awhile

    I was hoping they'd gone out of business.

    I guess not:mad:
