I would have went this way had it been available. It is definitely a less expensive way of getting the srt look.

correct....you need a shop that has experience in prepping/painting fiberglass

yeah, there is usually ALWAYS fitment issues with fiberglass. The front lips I went through on my mazda were fiberglass and had to be shaved down in areas to make fitment flush on the front end. Also, I think on fiberglass you have to have some kinda flex additive in the paint? not sure on that one though..

any bumper/plastic/fiberglass part needs flex additive

The secret with fibreglass panels is they ABSOLUTELY must be trial fitted and any little modifications made prior to painting. You would also need to pre-drill the fitment holes and trial fit the fogs.
Do that, and if the quality of the mould is ok (relating to flat surface finish in particular), there will not be an issue.
It's worth noting that if you are REALLY fussy, considerable time will be needed to bring the smaller detail areas up to par of an original ABS bumper.
But, props to this company for spotting a niche in the market :)

I agree. It's about time an aftermarket company made these bumpers.....

Now they just need to make front and sides and there will be a lot more clones cruisin' around!
