Not Sure What All The Fuss Was About Better Bodies

Everyone said stay away from Better Bodies because their parts don't fit. Well I'm glad I order it from them because they were the only company that offered the 3 piece rear bumper without the exhaust cut out.

Did it bolt right up? No it took some sanding here and there but I'm pleased with the out come.

Now I'm not sure if I want to cut the bumper for the exhaust tip. I need to find a 45 degree angle 3" tip to fit my GHL exhaust and hide it behind the bumper.

I'm glad it worked out for you.

Maybe they have turned it around (or you got lucky?), but their track record and customer service left a lot to be desired in my experience. As with any business that doesn't take credit cards, you need to be careful.

I think it looks great! When it's painted it will look ten times better!

Side skirts?
