The Aries bars were delivered on time and in perfect condition. The key to installation is keeping everything loose until all fasteners are installed. There is a difference between the left and right side not readily noticeable. Once tight the fit and appearance is awesome.
product looks good, but mounting brackets have no strength

I installed these as directed, and the install ion was fairly easy. Once I had them on I stood back and was impressed by how nice they looked. Then I proceeded to open the door and test them out by stepping on one...all 165lbs of me nearly brought the bar to the ground. Upon closer investigation I found that the mounting bracket is a poor design and bent right in half, front and rear. I have since ordered roll cage gussets and will be re-enforcing the brackets next week. Very disappointed.
