The light bar was delivered with the usual AutoAnything promptness. The packaging was safe, secure and would have taken a lot of effort to damage the contents.
The light bar was just as pictured and mounting was fairly easy. But as others have said, measure carefully and dry fit before fully mounting. I don't know about other trucks but on my '09 Ram it's very tight to get the light bar high enough to be seen above the bumper but low enough so it's not damaged by opening the tailgate. I lowered the score a little more because my trailer light connectors are mounted in my bumper and a I didn't want the plug for the light bar sticking out. I wound up buying an aftermarket plug and splicing that into the plug harness behind the bumper, instead of splicing the light bar wiring directly into the plug harness. Then I simply plugged the light bar into the extra receptacle. Two reasons for this effort. The wiring on the light bar is very light gauge compared to the existing harness and I had just as soon splice like gauge wires together plus I have an extra plug if ever needed. The second is that if the bar fails or is broken down the road I just unplug it, yank it off, get another, plug in and go. I can't call it a no brainer stick-on accessory but anyone with basic fix-it ability and attention to detail can mount it.
I'd definitely buy this product again.
