I'm going to list my slightly shipping damaged Bestop Bumper soon.
Looks like this when installed. The next 2 pics show the shipping damage. The top couple threads on the carrier bolt are damaged. There are also about 3 places where the powder coating is scraped off.

I think it will hold just fine. I don't have a thread chaser to clean out the threads, but I can try to thread on the castle nut. Here is a pic of the castle nut fully installed. There is a cotter pin that holds the nut in place.
I was going to post the bumper for $450 on Craigslist or FBook and $400 here.

super appreciate the response. Im actually looking to spend right around the $400 dollar mark. At this time, I think I will pull the trigger on this: https://www.extremeterrain.com/redrock-4x4-rear-bumper-yj-tj-j100565.html. ($394 and its on special with a rebate = ~$364)

I understand yours is probably insanely higher quality, but I literally need this only to hold a tire that the stock carrier cant. I dont offroad really lol.
