I do, yes. I've always been a fan of tube, but that's a good looking bumper.

The nice part is it will cost about the same for a tube but I like the solid-Ness of it. It will be nice to mount a dune flag and mount a cb to as well

There are certainly perks to both and it doesn't make the decision any easier when cost is the same. Sounds like you've made your decision!

I originally designed my mount to fit behind the stock bumper, but prefered running without a bumper, so it never made it back on.
