    I see by your profile you are just down the road-about 1,800 miles from Arrowhead. It the loudest stadium in the NFL but it's not that loud, lol.

    Sorry,back on bumper covers.

    You know, the funny thing is, I actually thought, "I hope no one confuses the Arrowhead area of Phoenix with another Arrowhead area." Nice catch!

    Thanks to this thread I found what I was looking for at BMC Extreme Customs. Arrived quickly and installed easily on my 2015 Explorer.

    Perfect fit on 2016 Platinum

    I am also very happy with the BMC Bumper Cover. It matches the black trim below it and fits precisely to the contour of the closed lift gate. It fits over the back edge of the bumper to protect that vulnerable edge surface. It is thick and sturdy and installs easy. After a month with my bronze fire X there were minor marks on the bumper that this product now prevents. It should be standard equipment. I also added weather tech front mud flaps. They were perfect match size and color. After observing the mud splatter, I decided front flaps would suffice since the rear body contour folds under behind the wheels and does not show or collect much mud.

    I just installed ford rear bumper protector and after its done, I realized I should have put it closer to the edge. But I was just follow template layout. Look decent but since it didn't cover edge, to me it's a waster of money because edge is what get beat up most.

    There are pictures of two different covers in this thread. I, like you, got the Ford one for my 2011 but if the one in post 69 had been available at the time I would definitely have bought it. That is that one you should have ordered.

    I know. It's too late now. Maybe on the next one I will get the right one.

    They're actually hexagons, not circles. ;)

    I got that exact one delivered today. BMC did email me to let me know about the design change, and I said to go ahead and send it (what other choices are there?). I'll put it on when the weather gets a little warmer, and see what I think.

    I suppose it should be more about function instead of style.

    I think we should write them to see if they can give us the option to select between the lines and the octagonal design.

    People interested to buy lets make some pressure.

    I doubt they would have both kinds but who knows for sure. I think this new design is better for preventing slippage if one were to stand on it and it also looks to be thicker than the previous one but hard to say for sure looking at the original. I know that the OEM one that I had was much thinner than this new style.

    Weather got a little warmer than the forecasters predicted, so I installed the BMC bumper protector.

    I'm okay with the new look.
