I'll post an update once I receive and install it.
Why is it all these bull bars won't work on a Laramie anyhow?

I have no idea. When I first started looking for them, most of the ones I found said they wouldn't fit the sport. But this one claimed it did and it did without any problems. Only had to cut a couple small slits on the splash guard under the bumper which the directions noted that. Some bolts were kind of hard to tighten down due to location of them but It wasn't all that bad.
My neighbor has a Laramie and once I get a chance I would like to look at his to see why it wouldn't fit.

Finally looked at my neighbors Laramie and with out taking the splash panel off from under the bumper it's hard to see why it wouldn't work. The splash panel is different than what is on my sport but it's plastic and mine had to be cut anyway. My only guess would be that if the Laramie's bumper is lower to the ground it wouldn't allow enough clearance for the brackets for the Bull Bar. Never thought to measure the bumper height. If I can think of it I might do that some time just to see if that is the issue.

Looks good! I was actually just thinking of a way to mount lights on my truck since I would prefer more light driving at night than the head and fog lights provide on certain roads

That looks pretty nice, I was considering one for my sport as well. I think I would want to see about getting it painted the same color as my truck, I don't want any chrome pieces on it if I can help it.
