    That would get ruined first trip out. For me at least. Why not mount it on a little hanger below spare tire location? Then it would be way less vulnerable?

    I agree. Mounted higher up and out of the way from instant damage would be good. Right idea with the wrong execution. Also think that looks awful.

    I just realized my dual exhaust would completely block the light anyways... And there are pre drilled holes in my bumper which will make mounting that much easier
