    I say "ON". OMG it looks great. The bar follows the lines of the bumper really good. I love it! More pictures please. I love truck porn.

    I agree, tube bumpers have never done it for me. They just look like you removed the bumper. And the trucks look awfully lame bumper-less if you ask me :(

    I was not sure about the nekidness at first, but it REALLY grew up on me and I would never want to go back to stock.

    All important/fragile parts like radiator, transmission cooler and A/C condenser are cover by the thick skid plate.

    Honestly if I hit cat/dog I don't think anything would happen to the truck or bumper. It would probably hold up way better against deer than stock as well.

    did you call him and tell him you have a 2012? i dont see a spot to order on the site just yet. he was telling me hes working on getting it updated.

    i think he needs to make slight adjustments to the light bar.

    Just bought it!
    I've always thought those bars looked great. I thought about getting one for mine, but with all the tight space driving I do in the city, I was paranoid that if I ever had any close calls getting out of a parallel parking spot on my street, the corner edge of that bar would just rip a chunk out of someone's car instead of lightly scuffing it like my bumper would, so I think I may just get something a little more low profile haha
