    Would you encounter a noticeable difference in mpg? Seems like it shouldn't be that much weight that it affects fuel consumption.

    I wanted a chrome one bad, but i saw this one laying around a warehouse and picked it up for $50 so i had to buy it. Then i got it Rhino-Lined for $50 so i' sitting pretty really.

    It really doesn't weight that much and i dont believe i've lost that much mpg, i'll have to check.

    I know it! Saved quite a bit of money.

    The install was a little tougher than i had expected though. I had to grind down the tow-hooks so the mounts would sit flat against the frame, other than that it was nothing to it!

    is it pretty wiggly still? I know mine was. I just tacked it to the bumper to stop that. I didn't notice a decrease in gas mileage when I did mine.

    Mine is pretty sturdy. I mean if you grab it and yank back on it, it will budge but it won't move much just sitting there.
