When I first open them up to read instructions . well the instructions are backward as for the direction of the bars are suppose to go. Quality of the bars are good but I am really concerned about the mounting brackets they look and feel like they were just old pieces of angle iron laying around and someone just decided to make a bracket from them. I am also concerned about the paint on the brackets because I already started to see some bubbles in the paint and where the welds are it is very bad weld jobs and I am not a welder but am sure I could have done a much better job than this is. So I guess you get what you pay for but would have expected alot better Quality work from a company like STEELCRAFT. Before ordering these I would first look at the mounting hardware just to see if the Quality is there like to other companys. Not so sure about the bars yet am a little concern about how they have the nuts mounted internal of the tubes and you screw a bolt from the bottom to mount to bracket. Am thinking after a while the nuts will work loose and the bars will come off the vehicle just have to wait and see. Hope they have a warranty against this if it happens.
