Just got mine and like it a lot. Quality is very good - fit, finish is great. Super easy install on my 2018 (same as 2019) - just use existing bolts (6) on the factory steel bumper. Can’t beat the price ($159) for what you get. I do like the mounting location and height of the Mopar one, but it wasn’t wide/tall enough to work with my Rough Country light bar. Mopar is also >$200 even with the 15% discount.

I bought a low one, but returned it because it blocked my recovery hooks.

Which light bar and mount did you use? Happen to have final install pics?

The grill guard is good for what you get. Some do not like that it blocks the hooks but I like that it does. Use d-rings and with the bar in place they can not come free from the hooks without a lot of force. Uses same bolts to install, took about 15 minutes. Oh and just plain looks good.

I read on another thread that some users with the Warn bar were having issues with rusting. Are any of you seeing rust issues? I really like the look of the Warn low bar the best but I'll go with the Maximus-3 if I am going to potentially face rust issues with the Warn.

My opinion is that all metal parts are susceptible to rust, especially at the welds.

Buy what you like and give it a quick spray touch up if necessary. I’ve scraped up my bumpers and sliders quite a bit on rocks, so maybe I’m just used to spray can touch up being part of my routine maintenance.

That said, I’ve had the warn low grille guard since January and haven’t seen any rust (yet)

I've seen those posts as well. You may want to consider the JCR bull bar. They made some changes to their powder coating process and have a layer underneath to prevent rusting near the welds. I'm partial to the looks of the Warn myself and will probably go with that and powder coating redone if it does rust or just touch it up if it's minimal. I live in North Texas so it probably won't be as big of a deal for me vs PA.

Good to hear you haven't had issues. I've seen pics of your Jeep with the Grille Guard installed in another thread. Looks great on the steel bumper!
