    Just remember, they're selling it at a profit, and it's really cheap.

    Therefore, it's cheaply made. Generally for this sort of thing it'll be thinner and have a really thin chrome coat.

    $50 is a good price for a used bumper as long as the shipping isn't much more than $75. We have a hard time in Va. With rusty bumpers probably like up where you are. You can slow that process down before you install. Clean and use proper paint on backside. And really get the center hole good. Just my 02.

    Just bought a rear bumper from cjbrown on here for 40. And shipping was 80. I'll hit it with some paint before I put it on.
