    It kind of looks the toughest slung low like it is in your very first photo in the thread. High up like that, it looks somehow fragile like it wouldn't really function correctly mounted to a flimsy tail gate.

    Way down low, as in the first pic, it seems like there might be some additional mounting bracing going on behind the valance/attached to the push bar, you know? Just looks tough down there.

    Another way

    I can do this I just have to make it a double quick release and remove to open tail gate would not have to mod what I have????? keep in mind the bag only holds the chute, the chute is really attached to the balance point off the frame

    I agree with Gary on placing it under the lettering. Kinda fits there. But whatever you choose will be fine.

    Thanks guys, I just have not had that lighting bolt strike to the head that i usually get. I know its a small thing but its hard to get a classic look out of something thats not a classic... so the little stuff matters more... I may have to do a temp set up cause I need to get the bumper coated with bedliner cause rain is on the way then cold weather, need at least 70 degrees to do it outside it really stinks, I like it under the lettering also I think I need a smaller light though

    Have you looked at moving it further under the truck, so the plate is still visible, but not "in your face" as it is in these three choices? It looks like a centerpiece up high, and most other places it detracts from the whole rear view. I'd either mount it under the truck back in a foot behind the bumper, or choose the lower left bumper, if it has to be out farther.

    Well these showed up at my door today not real happy with them they look great but the mounting surface area is lacking....only about 2/3 of the outer face of the rim surface area touches the rotor face, its the 1/3" raised area on the outer edge, then in the inner there is a bevel part that has a surface area on about .020 ths. no where do the lugs put pressure on the rotor face they stress the center of the wheel at the to contact points, Iam thinking these need to go back to summit racing

    I haven't tried any of the rocket wheels, but that sure doesn't look right or safe.

    That's to bad, they really look good.

    I've never seen the back side of the Rocket wheels. That doesn't look good to me either! ET Gasser that is much nicer design, and mounting. About $10 more per wheel, but well worth the extra money!
