Jeff (Southern California) | November 30th, 2019
The front when in perfectly and is way, way heavier duty that my tin like stock front skid plate. The mid plate was more difficult as it does not line up to the holes and the video does not go into what to do if they do not line up. I guess they have the hardware included about how to do this but they don't go into it and that left things a tad risky. I hope I did it right. As far as construction, these are extremely heavy duty, I can't imagine anything getting through them that I would encounter .

The set of hardware and instructions do not work completely on my 2011 model. The rear cross member this is supposed to bolt to according to the instruction video does not have any pre-threaded holes and the holes in the skid do not line up with the holes on the cross member. Ended up drilling through the frame to install this. Be aware - this is not a simple bolt on for all models! Other than that, it feels solid and the rest of the alignment worked good. I'd say 2.5 stars because I got so frustrated on the install, but let's round up because they're good about answering emails in a timely manner and I received the parts earlier than advertised.
