I haven't actually held the Mopar branded reinforcement, so I cant comment on the weight or materials. It fits on just like it should. Paint and finish is good. All tightened up and no rattles. It No rattles. The Mopar one claims to because made, thus bbn one is obviously Chinese. Even at ~$175 it seems a bit high for what it is, let alone what they ask for the Mopar one. The pictures of both sides of a Mopar reinforcement look exactly the same. They even copied the Mopar instructions down to where it says to install the Jeep Performance badge.Looks good. What are your thoughts on the knockoff, any issues or rattling?
