They take OEM bodyparts to use as a template for their aftermarket ones.

As far as being durable, hell yeah duraflex is!!! Last week a fly-by-night carpet installer was driving down the highway in the fast lane with a load of unsecured carpet in the back, so I get in the slow lane to pass him(cause I didn't want to get hit by a roll of carpet) sure enough just as I try to pass him a roll of carpet comes rolling off, slammed right into the front of my bumper. So I pull over expecting him to do the same(he didn't) I unlodged the huge roll of carpet from the front and no damage at all, nope not one little crack. So trust me these guys know what they are doing when it comes to making strong, cool looking bodyparts out of duraflex.

i hope this review helps.

Double///A\\\Ron Thanks for the replies.

Like i said my main concern is how well it fits, and i agree on the looks it was one of the most eye-catching to me also.

I will shoot you that PM as soon as I'm ready to make the purchase, my cracked facia has been driving me nuts for a while though it might be a month or so before i can make that purchase.

I'm tempted to do an installation writeup of the particular part to share my experience, since i'm a rookie at automotive work, it should be fun.

Blue5ive That is great looking bumper. Had almost considered doing a front end conversion so I could use this bumper.

Extreme Dimensions Hey,

That's a great choice on your end. For the life of this bumper we've sold 45 pieces. Only 1 was returned due to an the wholesaler loosing the sale. The bumper is a lot more flexible then the conventional fiberglass bumper. But it will never compare to a urethane part. The decision is up to you at the end of the day. Just so you know FF.com members get an exclusive discount on parts, so shoot me a PM if you are interested. Thank you!

Extreme Dimentions Duraflex Bumper Facia

Hello Everyone,

I'm currently doing some research in aftermarket bumper covers and having read a lot of discussions of fiber vs poly and fitment/durability issues, i've been very curious about this particular product.

http://www.andysautosport.com/ford/2...r00235153.html

I'm just wondering if anyone has used this product and if anyone has had any fitment issues with it. Any feedback regarding the quality of the material would be helpful too, it appears that this has much more flex than regular fiberglass but i'm looking to seperate hype from realworld results.

I had someone back into my bumper last winter and the oem plastic shattered like thin ice. I can't imagine they hit it too hard because there's no other damage beyond the facia. I would like to get something a tad sportier looking than the regular OEM bumper though.

Thanks in advance
