I mean, people weren't posting these concerns in all the other aftermarket front bumper threads that have existed over the years - what's different now?
Most of the aftermarket bumpers use the aluminum carrier which in conjunction with the bumper shocks functions as a crash structure. Streamline is replicating the CSL bumper which eliminates the carrier and mounts straight to the bumper shocks. I don't trust that sort of solution from a non-OE manufacturer
