    WTH how did you get the full size pic to post like that? I have not yet figured it out or how to load the ones from my phone to my album. Anyways back to the topic, a few months ago I was in the same boat. I looked on CL and found one for $200 and the guy even brought it down to me over the holidays. So CL would be your best bet just keep looking in you area or drivable distances as shipping may be pricey. I like that bumper!

    Make no mistake, that is NOT a roll bar. It will not protect you in a roll over, it is for looks and hanging lights on. The proper term would be bed bar.

    true, your not gonna have actual roll protection without some drastic cage fabrication, there is now way these things will support the weight of a truck, but i have always heard them called roll bars.

    I have heard a bunch of folks truly believe that those things will save your ass in a rollover, just wanted to make sure this one kid wasn't one of them.

    good lookin out for him.:thumbsup: i was worried to even sit on top of this thing when i bought it.

    And if you offroad you will be constantly tightening bolts. the bolts are loose on mine now. and it rattles. A buddy has one in his truck that I took the wire welder to and welded it up solid and it lasted about 2 wheelin trips and the welds cracked.

    no it is not. if you put more weight than 150#'s on it it will crumple and thats straight down on the top, if you apply weight from the side it will just fold over, no doubt about it.
