Interestingly….that device has a tubular look similar to the OEM side steps….and I think the two (side steps & the nudge guard) might compliment each other in looks, installed on the SC?

It has only 2 attachment point to the frame. That’s pretty weak. Pun intended

Watching the video (sound off), the bar definitely looks weak. Only two bolts holding it to the frame. The thin blades where the tube itself is mounted to look like they would fold easily without much more force than a nudge. Looks more decorative than protective.
The SC is not listed in their website vehicle selection, nor is any 2022 models.

I don't really find it all that decorative to be honest. I would prefer something that incorporates a light bar and skid plate. Something more substantial. Especially when you are looking at the $400 price point for a simple piece of black tube.

It seems to be available on their website currently. Definitely want one!

Looks like the bottom bar is going to be in the way of the radar on the Ultimate, 2023 SEL Premium trim… not an issue with lower trims.

You might be able to pull your kids power wheels jeep out of the mud with that, or maybe save your grill if you hit a small animal. But purely cosmetic. It might just end up looking dopey once on. I'd have to see it in person.

I'm not liking it, doesn't fit the sc, I've had them on power wagons and jeeps, but really, the sc, how many of us are going to push through brush, saplings, winch yourself out, etc. I've done it all, when I was a kid banging around off road, through the woods, hunting. This looks more like a wannbe.

I have to agree. Why is It we can’t dress up the SC? So it does not compete with a Ram diesel 1500 with a ”real” nudge bar. Does that have to be the goal? Who buys a unibody and has those expectations anyway? Why must the SC be the next roadside recovery vehicle of the decade?
