    I bought a cheap chrome front bumper off from ebay. It didn't come with holes for the extensions. I drilled the holes. The extensions fit fine. The front doesn't have the indent for plastic insert quite right. It fits, looks fine but doesn't inlay quite right compared to the factory one.

    Overall fit was not perfect as it was a cheap bumper. It's off 1/8" side to side. No one but me notices. I could take it off and open up the holes to adjust it but it's not worth it for me.

    I've heard those after market chrome ebay bumpers will rust if you look at them with a teary eye. Though so will the OEM :D.

    Please tell me how they old up.

    So far the one I got from ebay is rust/pit free. Probably 5 years old. But I live in NC with no road salt.
