Personally I'm glad I don't have that goofy white plastic cap sticking up off the top of my bumper. Also glad that it's a fully useable as a step (granted I have a roof rack, so that's extra important) where I don't have to worry about stepping on and cracking that cap.
I also can't imagine being so tight on space that I can't fit the water I need in my cab (or strapped to a bar, etc)... and especially can't imagine drinking/cooking with water that came out of my bumper.
To me it's a gimmick that never should have been released.
+1 with the vents though.
