it shouldnt matter as far as the red top optima. yea i noticed the 2 bolt mounting as well. im sure it would still be just as strong as the other versions. the nice thing with this bar is its a solid one piece and not 2 or three pieces that normaly see.
the rear upper bar is really nice as far as the welds go there clean and precise. the powder coat on the other hand lol that wasnt so nice it looks good but could have been beter. it bolted right in place which is a plus, no fabing to get it to work.
the bar will work bro, youll just have to improvise to get it to bolt down. the bar shouldnt hit that hose your talking about, it should only go under the metal lip a little bit. turn the bar around it looks like one side of the bracket is shorter than the other but could be the camera angles that are posted.
