The scuff plate works for me. I don't put things on the corner edge.IMO, I don't think that scuff plate offers much protection. The corner edge is still exposed and will most likely be the area that will get scratched. I recommend keeping a thick bath towel in the trunk. Drape it over the bumper whenever you are loading/unloading anything that you think can scratch the bumper.
Thanks for confirming my observations about the limited protection of the bumper guard.:smile2:I installed the rear SS bumper guard. It may look nice (depending on car paint color), but it isn't the best design. As previously mentioned, there is no protection at the right angle along entire rear horizontal edge. Received numerous chips after loading/ unloading cargo throughout year; .
