I've seen it in person, at Coal Country Overland, and MAR. It is very nicely done. No cut on the bumper so it can be returned to stock. I really like the D5 it is a really sweet truck off road.

They also have some nice no cut light mounts to for the grill to.

Nice. Since it's no-cut, I'm hoping the DIY install is straightforward. I'll have to send them a note....

I saw the lights also - I want something on the roof though, like the SVX prototype's skinny LED light bar. The OE LED headlights are pretty good - bright, good pattern - so lighting isn't all that critical to me. Hopefully the SVX guys will build one of those - though I know it's not everyone's favorite, I like the sleeker look to the D5 and would like something that complements the design a little better.

Yes, I do take it off-road.

When you give them a call talk to them about the baja designs light bar that they have mounted up top.

It looks alright if you are never planning to use it. Looks like the free spool lever would be a pain to bet to and you cannot see the cable on the drum to make sure that it is going evenly.
