Fiberglass body kits go through a different process than OEM parts. You can't go to your normal body shop or collision center to get it mounted. They are NOT a guarantee fit by the company so you have to make modifications like holes or trim some off. Right now my bumper is lower on one side than the other. The fiberglass reacts differently to the primer as well.
Also, due to the nature of fiberglass it is easier to break in accidents. A slight fender bender could cause the paint to crack more than a regular bumper. Just some info. I learned all this the hard way.
Maybe someone could chime in, but this was my experience. I love the look of the bumper, but I sometimes doubt that the hassle was worth the look. Of course, if you have the money then this is all nothing to worry about since you can pay someone else to worry about it.
