why go aftermarket? from my research the stock subframe from 08+ is magnesium and lighter than anything else available.

Its not for weight. When you crash a OEM one the tail always breaks on them but if you crash the aftermarket one you can either bend it back or replace just a piece.

Well if your worried about holding up to a crash check out atown customs...probably the most durable one out there pretty much made for crashing
