I purchased this bumper about 3 weeks ago and my first impression was very good! Literally for half the price of some of the "high-end" bumpers I got a very sturdy, heavy and what looks to me, nicely built bumper AND tire carrier. Installation was pretty easy with two people- trust me, you WILL need help! Luckily, I had a motorcycle lift and that came in VERY handy! It bolts into the factory bumper holes(4 on each end) and two more on the bottom. All the holes lined up perfectly and the hardware that came with it seems pretty heavy duty. I did have to wait an extra day for the tire carrier to show up but that was a snap to install also. Overall, I'd say this was about a 1 1/2 hour job but I didn't have to remove an old bumper.
Now the bad- this thing is BIG. After it was installed, I realized it partially blocks my gas filler cap and I am going to have to relocate my license plate. The tire carrier latch gets in the way. I am still able to get the gas nozzle in so it's not a deal breaker and I will have to wire a license plate light somewhere. So far though, these are my only gripes.
I will see how this holds up long-term and will update my review as I see fit. Overall, for the price, I think this is a GREAT deal!
BTW, this was installed on a 90 YJ. Also, I purchased this bumper from Ebay and it technically didn't have a manufacturer's name but after researching a bit, it appears to be a Paramount brand....or a knock off.
