Same feeling here, as far as the plate and camera bracket being on piece. If the plate bracket was a separate piece that could either be used or not, the whole unit would also cater to those sticking with the stock bumper. Or even a few other options out there whose design kept the plate on the bumper. The upside if Cavfab is the parts ship out raw, which opens up the opportunity to make tweaks before having it finished.I'm not in love with that part either.
Don't you have to drill holes into the tub with Rusty's?
And yeah, Rusty’s carrier has a welded on plate that extends closer to the gate handle. It has 4 bolting locations for those who opt to drill 4 holes in their tailgate. Some other members have cut that plate off before install, and I've yet to read any complaints about not adding those bolt locations.
