Here's a recent testimonial by the husband of a Honda Pilot driver rear ended by a Toyota Tundra!
First of all, I just wanted to say that we are very glad that we got the Superbumper for both of our cars. First we got the bumper for my wife's car, she is driving Honda Pilot, and then I got a Superbumper for my Nissan Xterra. We were pleased with the look and the use of it as a step.
But we can not even tell you, how pleased we were with it, when my wife got into the rear end accident. She was hit from behind by Toyota Tundra. And let me tell you that the Superbumper saved not only her life, but the car was not damaged at all.
The Superbumper absorbed all damage that otherwise would have destroyed the back of the Honda Pilot, and absorbed the power of the hit that would have sent my wife to the hospital.
The shock absorbent burst and was ripped from the bumper, the plastic caps got ripped from the sides, the towing ball was sheered off…but the car was not damaged!!!

I was looking for reviews (not just testimonials) on these super bumpers and it always seems to lead to this thread. But punchline seems to be missing. How do you like it? Pros or cons? Do you or do you not recommend this product?

I never installed it so I don't know, although I'm going to raffle it off here sometime soon if anyone's up for it.
This thing is definitely beefy though, and I would recommend it for sure.
I wouldn't be interested in one with the hitch ball. I like using a solid device for that with no movement, but I'm seriously thinking about getting the twin of what you have without the ball on it, or the flat bumper-shield version

When I raffle the Super Bumper off just remember this thing can be used on any vehicle with a receiver.
