You just reminded me - I forgot to add that i just installed one today. It cranks great (much needed with the 1250 and cams) and its noticably lighter having removed those 10 lbs from up high. That, plus adding the skid plate weight down low, was a noticable change.

There seems to be some reliability debate on these though - cold weather issues ? Maybe it was for the earlier models ? Not sure, but for a 10 lb savings, Im willing to give it a try and see how it does.

You can see it in this picture a bit better...
