Genright Alum bumpers install

Purchased their front and rear aluminum bumpers. Happy with the look of them and with the finish I applied. Very light weight as well. Used a Wurth product called Stone Guard Black. Made for rocker panels and bumpers, a nice textured look, goes on thick and kind of rubbery on the surface. Only could order direct from Wurth USA, kind of strange no one resells it anymore.

Overall installation went OK but could have been a little easier, there was cutting involved at the ends of the front bumper mounting areas and some widening of the holes in the bumper. Sawzall and grinder needed, also some POR 15 to apply to cut/ground areas.

Pictures: To follow. Why can't I upload them? resized to 800x600. Are there problems on the site?

looking forward to the photos. been thinking about their rear alum bumper. how was the install on that and did you have to cut any of the bumper for the tow hitch?

did you wind up installing the backup lights?

Yes, 4 LED backups on rear. Trying to post pictures but still can't. 800x533 with 72 resolution and 171 kb. From my searching they've downsized what can be included as far as photos but I've done other in past month successfully. Moderators don't seem to reply. Spent a lot of time downsizing pictures, PITA. Use my laptop, not phone or ipad. Can anyone help on this?

They have been working on the picture format for the past week or so and keep saying they're almost done!
Hopefully all the bugs will be worked out sometime this week.

We are very sorry for the inconvenience.
