    I still need to adjust the bolts as some stick out too far but so far so good.

    For those wondering how well these hold up in a crash. Hyrdoplanned trying to avoid another car at 60mph and spun into a guardrail.

    Thumbs up on them working well. If you need any replacement parts, let me know. of course, new everything means latches should not be needed for about 4 months.

    Even if i do get a new bumper i will still add the quick latches as it makes taking the bumper off 1000% easier.

    Raider your original write up uses
    QL-25-S upper diameter 1.25 inch (31.75 mm)
    I just found this thread but i had already ordered 4 of these. Did you recommend a different upper diameter in this update ? also i did not buy the mini latch spring assist should i pick those up ? originally I was just gonna use the same bolts on the bracket and call it a day. But i see your new update utilizes the first and last bolt at the rear of the fender.

    The diameter is fine. It's been years, no issues. I'll be honest, I've had em for years and don't totally remember the latch size, but was the default. My kit uses a shorter pin for the fenderwell. The regular kit threads into the bracket, ideally the black ones. The springs really help, I recommend them a lot.
