Installed my Hypermotive 3pt. Rear Strut Bar!
I love it! It looks sweet and I dunno if it is mental or not, but I feel as if there is a lot less body roll! I can't wait to get my sways and endlinks, then I will consider my suspension done! Here are some pics:

I'll take more pics today for ya and as for price, you will have to find a used one from what I know. I'm pretty sure Hypermotive when out of business...

i think they just temp. closed for like six months to a year. glad i got the second to last 3pt bar they had. haven't installed mine yet, trying to decide if I should just leave all the trunk plastics out like you did or if I should cut holes in them and go that route. looks pretty tough with the plastics off.

seems as though the install is simlar to TRD but you don't have to drill holes like TRD..

You have to drill holes for this bar also. This bar actually takes a little longer to install because since it is removeable, you have to line everything up before you drill the holes...

There should be plenty of room, to fit an amp. I will be mounting an amp on my back seat in a week or two...
