Well there you go. You know fiberglass can shatter and crack, but poly-urethane will bend to contours and resist impact better.

To sum it up, you answered your own question in 1st post.

Urithane will droop if you don't back it with foam like the stocker. Also it seems you answered your own question, urithantne will not shatter like fiberglass.

Yeah, most stock bumpers are urethane now, and they are foam lined. I think in really hot weather they get significantly more flexible, hence the backing. What do the urethane ones come with?

300,000 KM/Sec. Its not just a good idea, its the law.
