    I've heard from one guy with one installed.

    Said it did it's job but took some modification to get it to mount.

    Personally, you could probably have a custom unit fabbed for less than $465. That said, I'm sure it's a good product. BB makes good stuff.

    Since your picture didn`t work I looked at some online pictures

    It reminds me of what we used to run on our muscle cars back in the early seventies

    Just mounts in a rather strange way

    I can understand the mounting wanting to not impact the ground clearance

    Bud Built does build good products for those that can`t do for themselves

    That is a tad pricey I think something could be built much cheaper with some thought

    FWIW - I looked at Bud Built, Cal Trac and other universal traction applications before "custom crafting" a set of contact bars for my 2015 Sport. I might have 25 bucks wrapped up in materials, and they are fully adjustable.
