Hey Fishdist. Yes I can help. I ordered one for my 08 Sunburst orange pearl R/T just yesterday. Try Truck Candy .com or call and ask for Bryon Hibbets @ 866 670 0055 .As of yesterday he had 6 Westin Bull Bars with skid plate after my order. The cost was $ 350.73 including freight .It was my first order with them but they seemed like stand up people. Tell him Harry from Florida gave you the info. I did 9 other mods on my Nitro since getting it last week. If you have trouble locating stuff maybe I can help ,just rattle my cage. Good Luck.

Your welcome Fish. I also went with a Rhino Bar for the rear. That should keep them off my ass end.

I've got a big trailer hitch sticking out there. If they hit they will regret.

Sounds like a plan Fish . I just got notice of the intended delivery tomorrow of my Bull Bar. When I crawled under the Nitro to eyeball where I thought it may attach ,I was disappointed to see what appears to be light weight metal mounting .I can't see any other location to mount this Bar. I sure hope I'm wrong .I'll let you know what I see when it arrives.

Roadie, Mine arrived today. Being in Calif, have to also buy the front license plate relocate bracket. My plant maintenance techs will be installing mine pretty soon. I will relay your remarks about the possible flimsy mounting. The Westin product is pretty heavy duty stuff and looks great. More later.

More: It's on and looks great. I will get a pic together when I get time. The unit is pretty flexy but I'll drive it a bit to see if it's a problem before doing any mods. Since I won't be using aux lights, the license plate relocate bracket is not needed after all. I will return it when it shows up.

On to the next project.

Ditto Fish. I installed mine this morning. I've read that most found their bar flexing. Actually I found mine to be the opposite. It's not as ridged as if it were bolted to a box frame install.But it was better than I expected when I first saw the light metal bolting area. The single bolt ,bolt plate, is crucial to getting the bar secure .I think some
nitro owners decided to skip that portion of the install I found it to be a bitch getting it in place. I was flat on the garage floor without benifit of ramps or lift. But it was much more difficult than the Westin Nerf Bars .I did order KC chrome ,long range , 6 " round lights.
