The bolts that were missing in the corner brackets allow the frame to open up and damage the external hinge cover and paint.
Not my best day. Look at an ARE in person before ordering and inspect completely before accepting.
Oh yeah I forgot to mention paint overspray and unfinished corners on the fibreglass at the front, the inside portion of the hinge has almost all of the rivets pulling through the hinge.
I have some pics, but need to learn how to post them first.
Just my 2 cents.
I think you just got a bad product, and should return it to the place of purchase in order to get it replaced!

Now back to the OP...

I've got the A.R.E. LSII with the keyless option and LOVE IT. I don't do much hauling of stuff, and when I do I've got my utility trailer

It looks good, good quality, no issues with fit or finish, and the keyless unlock is tied into the locks on the truck. It wasn't cheap though... I believe it got it with a Bed-Rug for $1200 installed

(PM me if you want to see pics)
good luck and keep us updated

Exco
