Default DBR Tube Bumper

Does anybody on here have one or know anybody on the other sites that have one installed?

I emailed DBR yesterday and asked them if the tube bumper will work with a truck that has a 3" body lift. this is the pic that they sent me, what do you guys think?

From that picture I don't like the look of it at all. Is it just me or does it seem like there's too much space?

x2, the front doesnt look bad, but the sides where it meets the body and under the headlights it just looks like crap you know.

I noticed the gap as well, which got me thinking that I could still find some way to keep my chrome bumper on as well as run this. it appears as if it would work. from what I saw on their site, the tube bumper bolts through where the bumper originally went through the frame. with me having the raised bumper mounts because of the body lift, I still might be able to run the factory bumper. What do you guys think?

It sits too low I think. You can tell the truck is lifted and bumper isnt.
I say find the one you like and have it made, or ask them to mod it for the lift.
