X2. Those are what I'm running. I really like them a lot. And I took advantage of the 1.25" body lift and put the reverse lights under the tailgate.

How do you change the position if it? Looks like a good idea if you don't carry passengers or have a hardtop.

I use one on each side to connect the dogs leash to so my dumb dog doesn't fly out when I don't have my Cargo Net on.
