Very good product. I installed the base plate on a new truck I purchased while on vacation in Florida and did the installation in the campground with the tools I carry with me, so it is not a difficult installation. On the 2016 GMC Canyon the instructions say to pull up on the base plate before tightening the bolts, if you do this the part of the base plate that holds the removable pins will hit the grill. I suggest you place the grill on the truck to center the pin holders in the grill before tightening the bolts. I only had to cut off one end of the bumper in order to get it to fit.

Installation of the Blue Ox #1721 baseplate on the 2015 Chevy Colorado was quite easy. Cutting the metal brackets from the original bumper, as shown in the instructions, is not necessary. One should try putting the bumper on first...it fits.
This recommendation was passed on to the people at Blue Ox.
