    has anyone broken a RPM bumper mount yet?

    I am about to start a bit of a Summit over haul. My Bajr body has taken to many upsidedown landings and those big wings make wonderful gravel scoops, needless to say the body is pretty much toast. with my next project body I am seriously considering putting the bumpers back on and I am wondering how the RPM mounts are holding up?

    IMHO. Pretty good so far. Ive destroyed quite a few of the stock ones so i bought 4 rear rpm mounts (i use back mounts for the fronts as well). Im still on my first 2 so they are stronger than stock.

    My RPM mounts have been holding up just fine. I think the true test will come when I'm running the truck in sub-zero temps. Unfortunately, those days are right around the corner.

    I've had mine for quite a few months now and have not had any problems. But like Jay 313 said the true test will be when winter rolls around.
