Yeah it's actually strong comapred to the gas tank and the front skids. I've nailed mine plenty of times and it still holds up well!

I got all three. Of all 3, i would have to say that the front plate is the weakest.

Nice, but it its anything like your HID's in the offroad lights, you may have sold the truck before you ever get to put it on.

Ah, its been 3 years since I did mine. More than likely I'm confusing it with something else... perhaps something that I did 3 hours ago, who knows. I honestly didn't even remember I had one till I just now thought about getting one. lol

the hardware is 4 bolts and 4 washer/nut looking things that fit in the frame rail.

be prepared to spend 20 bucks for those at ford.
