    I found this yesterday and have always liked the way trucks look with one of these on it. I went and bought it today, put it on this afternoon. I like the way it looks from the back but I am not thrilled on how it is so far away from the cab. We will see, not liking it as much as I thought I would, but I am undecieded as to keep it or not, it might grow on me. Would like it better with some back up lights, and if I get the real backrack tool box mounts, not the scrap pieces of aluminum I had in the garage. But anyways what do you guys think?

    Looks good. Are you sure thats the one made for the superduties? my buddy bought one for his chevy off a superduty and it looked like crap, didn't really fit quite right. What did it come off of?

    Came off a 2000 superduty. So there might be little adjustment that could be done. It might be better after I get the real tool box brackets from back rack. They might help stand it more upright to the cab.

    The cab slopes forward, so that is why the gap looks the way it does. I find mine is extremely useful for attaching things-strapping stuff in. Would never live without one.
