    Does anyone have any pictures of it installed. Does anyone have any good detailed pictures of how it looks at the bracket area where it attaches? what size tubing is it?

    If someone could give me the detailed specs of the materials used to make it that would be great.

    I dont have any pics but, stay away from the "stainless" model..I had one and the finish flaked right off of it. It had a timely demise under the track of Hitachi ex 200.. It is a slick setup, pretty stylish with the accessory light mounts...Just my opinion on it but get the Black painted version.

    GMC2500HD,
    It sounds like you received one of a handful of Fisher ProTubes that were shipped in our very first shipment. The first few units were chrome plated carbon steel and had a very poor chrome plating finish on them. We immediately decide to switch to polished grade 304 stainless steel from the chrome plated carbon steel. If you will PM me with your shipping address along with a little more detail (where the unit was purchased), I will ship you out a replacement unit at N/C. I will assure you the polished stainless unit will be more than satisfactory and will look great for many years to come. Sorry for the inconvenience.

    Think that speaks well for Fisher to step up to the plate for GMC2500HD. Superior companies shine when it comes to standing behind their products.
    Same for my Fisher dealer- have been back a few times for questions about possible problems (long after the warranty had elapsed) and they were happy to help- each time the fix wasn't very involved but they took a few minutes out of their schedule (I avoid snowstorms or just after- figure the commercial guys need help more than me at those times) fixed me up and sent me on my way- no charge!
    Needless to say, they have a lifetime customer.

    And a new Stainless ProTube will probably be on the front of my truck in the springtime.

    Hey Gary,

    That`s really a nice gesture to replace the Protube. Also, by keeping a keen eye for things like this on this site ! :salute:

    Wow!!! Thats customer service. Very glad I stayed with fisher. Now I want one of these protube things for the off season. Anyone have a ballpark on the price range? And can the foglights be wired into the factory fog lights on an 06 HD? ie; use the same switch?

    Mine was $250, that was 2 years ago. The fog light can be wired into the stock foglights very easily.
