Re: New fiberglass SRT rear bumpers on ebay....hmmm

I would be afraid because its fiberglass, i just dont like fiberglass body parts, i think they are less resilient and fit like crap w/o modifying them.

Wouldn't this bumper be heavier than stock SRT bumper.

Hence the need to trial fit.
This doesn't suit alot of guys who don't have the skills or contacts to get it done at a reasonable price.
Lots of guys want a pre-painted part that they can fit with basic hand tools.
This fibreglass replica doesn't suit those guys.

What exactly is it your trying to say there Mr. Marlin?

I am not saying that i or anyone personally would not be up to doing the work needed, i just dont like the idea of a fiberglass bumper cover. to me they are less forgiving. I would rather buy an aftermarket bumper made form plastic like stock then fiber glass.

To be honest i want one like yours, i am not going for the SRT look on my jeep, i just want th get the rear fogs, so id like to get a WH rear bumper with fogs one day.

Re: New fiberglass SRT rear bumpers on ebay....hmmm

lol, mate, I'm not saying anything.
All I'm saying is, if someone wants a rear bumper with factory fit and colour match straight out of the box, then buy a genuine bumper.
If someone is prepared to save a bit by messing around with a replica 'glass one, and be prepared for it to slpit/crack if it ever gets touched, then roll with a replica

It just seems to me, in this day and age, most people want something to fit and match straight away. I personally am not one of those people. For instance, if I wanted the Mopar side skirts, I would order them unpainted so I could have them painted here to ensure an absolutely perfect colour match. But I wouldn't but a fibreglass rear SRT bumper, I'd have genuine if I wanted one.
