I was glad that G.M. did not put there bar across the back gate. BUT this bar and smaller taillight is a great blend, I love that aspect. The large round tail lights and half moon door handles are my least favourite items.
I agree with you, before mine came in I was thinking about a replacement. I chose 50 pontiacs and frenched them so you don't see them from the side at all. The first thing was the door handles I threw them away the first week!!!
