Default Aftermarket Dodge Ram Daytona wing junk

Hi, I just wanted to give anyone looking for an aftermarket Dodge Ram Daytona rear wing a friendly piece of advice- buy a factory new, or used unit.
I had done my research and found no reviews or feedback (good or bad) on the aftermarket unit and decided to try one for $199.99, unpainted, from xtremeautosport.net .
I got it today, and the spoiler has a huge twist in in from one mounting surface to the other. I checked it on a couple different areas on my concrete floor to make sure it wasnt the bed that was twisted, and it was exactly the same.
According to my neighbor , which is a body shop, either the spoiler will crack or the embedded mounting bolts will pull out of the spoiler if I try to bolt it on.
I have contacted him and am waiting to see what he can do for me, but the shipping alone was $120.00, from NY to MA. The brand was jps america, which I believe is the only company that makes this spoiler, other than Chrysler.
Just figured I would post this to save anyone else the hassle of trying to save a buck and end up regretting it.
Keep in mind I am not a DIYer, I have owned my auto repair shop for 20 years.
Matt

Hopefully he will help me out , he has good feedback on e-bay, even though I didnt buy it through there... I'm gonna return it and just buy a new factory unit.
This aftermarket one mounts with 3 bolts per side from the bottom up, 4 of the 6 bolts are a royal PITA to get at ( tailights have to come out every time you need to take the spoiler off to load the bed).
