dont buy one haha, i was going too but instead just bought some material and made it. takes a little bit of figuring but definately worth it, save like $250 by building your own. if anyone wants more pictures just let me know.

ill get some more pics up later, theres really nothing to complicated to it though lol. i wasent planning on putting back up lights on it but that would be a good idea, one of the first things i noticed when i bought the vehicle is how difficult backing up at night is with the tinted rear windows. makes it kinda hard to see where your going lol
