    I'm 1665mi from the left and 1321mi from the right...how much more in the middle do I need to be?! :cool:

    I went with CBI. I got front and rear bumpers used locally so I got a hell of a deal, but I still would've gone with CBI either way. Installation of the rear is a breeze and solid as hell. I've got the spare swing arm too and it's beefy as hell.

    They added more support for the sides. I can push with all my force and not budge it.

    something i've never heard discussed... when you're rearended, you want the car to absorb the energy, not have it transmitted. there's a very good reason they call them crumple zone's... they are supposed to crumple. so there is a flipside to all of this... a bumper that could bend easier has an upside.

    Yea, I have yet to see the carnage of one of the 3/16 or 1/4 plate wrap around bumpers, after a 30MPH+ crash. I am sure the bumper looks decent...
