I received my Tuff Bars and they were exactly like the previous pair I returned from Pro Z. I expected nicely polished surfaces with no imperfections. Well Like the Pro-z they have blemishes and some scratching. I didn't return because I assumed after two pair that another one would be the same. For the money I think they should have a perfect finish. I would not order anymore polished stainless steel but get chrome instead. I had a pair of chrome ones for years and they never showed scratches.
Easy install. Look great. 3rd bracket makes a big difference in stability. Glad I looked for these bars. Great value and took about 45 mins to install alone. For future buyers, install brackets first, but do not tighten any bolts. Then install bars. Tighten brackets next, then tighten bracket bolts. Reason being is there will be play in the brackets and you will want to align and have all hardware in place before making tight. Highly recommend this product.
