    I am looking for a low profile front "bull type" bar that I can use as a tie down point when transporting kayaks on my Yakima roof racks. I'm not looking for anything big like a push bar. I've seen the heavy tube stuff Westin and others make, that's not for me. I really just need a solid but light duty anchor point. Suggestions?

    3 tab bar. Use the middle light mount for the tie down point.

    i been lookin at a hunter for mine found it on ebay but they have a direct website truckgeardirect.com they had one for $105 plus shipping was thinkin about gettin it and some running boards ($119) both black and seeing what kind of a combined rate i could get, thought the bar looked pretty good and the running boards were not bad not exactly what i had in mind but cant beat the price and i wont see them much when im driving anyway ha. but i'd give them a look.

    x2. An NFab bar would fit the bill. They seem to have solid mounting and are low profile.

    I really like that N Fab for the '12.. Wish the ones for the 05-11's looked that way.
