Is your lower bumper lip smashed upwards? It looks like the lower valance curves up towards the bar...

Yeah- I'm sure it can be trimmed to avoid any pushing. But it dosen't bother me.

I have the bar on my 02 and had to trim the valence to make it work, the bar sits too high without a body lift. You can still use the tow hooks just fine though.

It is a $169.oo product vs. $369 for a Westin. - If you want to bounce your truck off of boulders or other vehicles- don't buy this bar. If you want a decent looking bar to hang lights off of for a fairly cheap price, buy this bar.

Heres the exact product installed:

Yep, agreed... you usually -avoid- trying to smash the front of your truck up.. and it really doesnt take much to reinforce this bar anyway, I plan on doing it here in the next month or so along with changing some brackets around. Wont be hard in the least bit.
