    I haven't read through all 9 pages but is there anything other than the issue that was mentioned in post #218 that prevented the liftgate from opening? If it is just that, I think keeping the snow brushed off the rear bumper would likely fix that as would the occasional opening to ensure everything is working. If I was looking to add one, I would go ahead with the BMC and then go from there. I can't imagine there isn't an issue that can't be overcome. I'd also stay away from the chrome version for various reasons.

    I have the one with the hexagons. It was on my '13, and I pulled it off, put new 3M tape on it, and put it on my '15. Both have the power liftgate. It works 100%.

    2013 Explorer Limited with the power liftgate, looking for a rear bumper protector pad.
    Ideally I'd like one that has at least some lip that extends over the corner of the bumper and will fit the power liftgate. I've seen several that I liked but they all say they won't work with the power liftgate. The Ford factory one is not exactly what I had in mind but it appears that it's all I've found so far that will work for my Explorer.
    So, anyone know of others that definitely will work?

    Thanks in advance!

    I've used this one for 2.5 years and it has held up fine with my power liftgate.

    I have a 2018 limited. Anyone know if there's a bumper for that model year that covers the lip?

    I would contact BMC (link in post 225) and ask them if they have them for the 2018 Explorer. I don't believe there were any changes made from 2017.
