WOW! That's too short, right? Well, that's all I have to say. This thing looks awesome on the Ford Explorer. We were afraid that it would take away from the sporty look since we have the Sport edition but it does not. In fact, it makes it look aggressive but in a subtle way. This was primarily purchased to protect the front from other people that do not know how to park. We had our previous one for 12 years and the bumpers were still brand new after all that time. The quality on this is there and it looks great. The instructions are intimidating for the average person and require cutting some of the bumper away.
