    Well just looking for some opinions on this thing, open to both positive and negative feedback and especially if you have had or known someone who had one. I can get it for $220 then slap some lights on it and I think i'd be quite happy with it. I know its certainly no substitute for a relentless or all pro type replacement bumper but I have no need for such. I also think it would compliment an avid up front fairly well. Although the idea of drilling four holes(I believe) through my factory painted bumper doesn't exactly sound wonderful.

    See if they can make it to go in the hitch then ya dont have to drill holes...

    IMO it doesnt look very good, what would the purpose be?

    would definately require some custom work for a hitch mount and it would prolly be even less solid.. purpose: slightly more protection on the back side and i think it looks pretty good, also rear lighting would be handy..

    I love it a lot. In fact i may even get one the summer. I really need to mount lights to the back. This seems to be a great option. I love the look as well

    It would get in the way of the stock camera.

    I don't see how it will interfere with the camera. My cam is in the tailgate handle. I would see it on the screen but it wouldn't block much.

    i like the way it looks, but how much protection could it actually provide? looks like thin tube steel to me i.e. not very strong. do what you want chris! its your truck!

    Seems to be ideal for lights.
    I can't see it blocking the camera vision that much at all really.
    Really like this and hopefully may be a Birthday present in July :)

    I am also interested in this. I have yet to find a picture of a 2nd gen with it on. I am also wondering how much interference there will be with the hitch and the neck of the trailer when it is hitched on and when turning the trailer. Let me know if you guys find something out.
