    I noticed that too. Different from the JL version shown last year.

    Should be a non issue the company designs some nice stuff. I have a snorkel on my 4x4 MB Sprinter and there is a huge difference in keeping the air filter clean as the intake is up higher away from most of the dust.

    Horrifyingly the only item I've seen in the entirety of the SEMA pics that caught my attention. At least not counting things that have already been out a while. So much over the top stuff.

    This however is tube-ey, think it would look great with tube doors, and a bed rack that works with a tonneau is definitely on my wish list. Like the mate up with the cab rack, and the overall length would be pretty spot on for 10' kayaks without sticking out much.

    Like the light provisions, I've been thinking about how and where to put some extra back facing lighting.

    Probably pushing the limits of getting under my garage door though, the info for the already out cab rack says 6" of height. I'm not sure I have that much left!

    Nothing for info on the bed rack part though. Anyone at the show who can dig up some dirt on this would be awesome.

    My only hope beyond what I see would be a side rack provision for extra storage, rotopax, etc.

    First prototype. Not finished with design yet but they got alot of good feedback. I'm sure the final result will be similar. And yes Rugged ridge is a little cheaper than some but from the few products I've had over the years they were good bang for the buck.

    I’ve been really happy with my rugged ridge HD stubby front bumper. I like the rear bumper on this truck also, just wish they had provisions to build the receiver INTO the bumper instead of keeping it below. A hitch receiver behind the license would be perfect.

    Most of the Truck Hero brands are made in the US, but they design stuff in house and send it off to the cheapest willing manufacturer for Rugged Ridge
