If you are looking for a way to carry your Hi Jack or Shovel outside your vehicle this is a great option. I use my Jeep as a DD and have my kids in the back so space is very limited. This allows me to carry a jack for emergency use without eating valuable space inside. Not to mention, I think it looks awesome.
For installation, you have to replace the hood hinge bolts with new supplied bolts. Easy to do. Very solid mounting.
