When my wife first mentioned your product, I was skeptical of how it would look on the truck. Now that it’s installed, it is a nice looking, practical piece of equipment. To my surprise, it is very easy to fold down to allow access to the hood. I was also concerned about cleaning behind the lower portion of the bars but this concern vanished after the first washing. It is easy to get a brush between the bumper and fog lights and the lower bars.I especially like the coating that has been applied to the bars. I am sure this will protect them from scratches and rust and keep it looking good for many years. I saw a cutaway at the Volvo dealer and was impressed at the thickness of the steel tubing and the thickness of the coating. I am sure this will protect the front of our truck from any deer that wanders into our path. The service manager at Hickory Volvo said, “That thing will stop a moose.” After that, everyone started calling it a Moose Catcher.
