Product is very well designed and built to last. Installation wasn't too bad. I didn't like drilling the 2 holes into the front drivers side rocker panel. Especially since there are 2 pre-drilled aholes with nut inserts already in that same location. I felt that the engineers could have designed the bracket to incorporate those holes. Not a deal breaker but takes additional time and skill to get those holes drilled due to lack of clearance for a drill and angle.
I shopped online and at several local dealers before buying The Raptor 4's. I'm old school and was a little leary ot the stainless steel. I'm use to real steel. I weigh 220. But i wanted something strong enough to support anyone that might use them that weighs much more. I like the curved ends without the plastic cap. Because i will only drive the vehicle less than 500 miles a month, i want know the full ability of them for years. So far so good. Makes my tuck look much better too.
