    Well, I got it put on and I have to admit at first I was kinda like...uhhhh. Its growing on me though. The bar is well designed with the contour of the front end. Already got a compliment at the Minit Mart this evening too! :bananadance: What do you think?

    Looks great. I love the way it hugs the front bumper. Easy install?

    Install isn't to bad. You use existing bolts and nuts on the frame. Kinda tight spot for a ratchet but I made it work and got them torqued down really good.

    I put mine on last year; looks great! After one year though, I need to repaint it as it is full of chips. I used Rustoleum 3 coats of primer and 3 coats of paint. I may just brush it on this year.

    Did you powder coat or paint it (primer and paint?) I have one ordered, how long did yours take? I think a set of lights would help too, do you have plans to add lights.

    Looks good to me,

    I had it powder coated. It was 75.00. Looks great! Its a flat black crackle finish. I asked the folks at Avid Offroad about it and he recommended powder coating it. Lin-x be hard to keep clean in his opinion.

    It took 4 weeks to get mine in. I'm not sure about mounting lights to it. Car wash would rip them off right?

    I was wishing I had one of those the first time I had to go off road & push over a few saplings on my hunting property. I still may get one even though I don't really need any extra lights - just looks like it would protect the lower plastic bumper from small brush. How much do you think it weighs?
