Does it work pretty well? And can you place them just about anywhere or only on the front?

They're all around the truck. Clean the surface before you stick it on.
Only issues I had were the ends on the two sides starting to peel away from the truck. Dot of silicone took care of that.

What's happening with that jeep in the last pic?

Great looking truck! Much nicer than when it had the DB lift on it.

It fit pretty good... hammered the ears in a little bit. I was more worried about how much it hangs down and catching shit offroad. If you tug it towards the rear before you tighten the winch, it clears the pumpkin

Looked pretty good to me once it was under there. Gonna run it and see, change the mount later on if I need too

And it still works pretty well after water crossings and mud?

They're encased in silicone... No issues

Ok... besides some light blockage from mud
