Haven't heard much about it other than what I was told before it was released.

I tried to install it yesterday, to say the least, I'm not happy with it at all. I ordered one from Rudy's last night (should've done this in the first place) to replace it.

First problem, they welded a tip with a bolt hole that attaches to the radiator bracket. Well, not only is the tip on at an angle but it seems to be about .5"-1" off which puts the pipe and boots at a funny angle, this also does not allow for the bolt to line up. I cut have cut this tab off but did not want to scuff up the pipe and didn't feel I should have too since it was made for my truck.

Second, every truck may be different , but even after grinding the lip off the radiator support it was still a pain in the rear trying to get the support bolt to line back up.

The CAC from Rudy's has really good reviews and supposedly has a small indentation where where it meets the radiator support. Also, from the pictures it doesn't have the tab with bolt hole. Therefore I am going to give his a try. If the new one gives me problems I guess I'll have to admit a crappy installer.
