Did you figure out what the extra piece is for on the top of the tire carrier? I don't have the spare mounted yet so it just clanks around when you go down the road. Here's a better look at the mechinism.
I think it is a brace for the tire or to mount a 3rd brake light to even thought it does not come over the tire. Not sure. Had a friend of mine cut and weld the angle iron on it for my HiLift. They do have alot of slop in that bar so he actually threw some welds on it on the "flange, tab, whatever it is" to tighten it up a bit more sits kinda funny but I am not worried about it and still can be taken off. Holds the hilift and does have a slight squeek....

This is true, i hope to have it lined by next week and painted by the next. darkish gunmetal grey is guna be my color hah but i think mine will be done when i get what i want now cause this isn't my main excitement...I'm a speed freak! once i get my 370z in the spring, that will take my money. I plan on putting 20k in the motor alone... but i want to make 700+ hp without nos but i plan on using nos too hahah

Well here ya go, i'll start off by showin my jeep. It was stock with 31s. don't have any pics until i put my lift and 35s on a week after i got it hah


Theres my bike... hah

My new halo headlights. have H4 bulbs and they are so much brighter than stock


Now here comes the good part. So my bumper came and i saw the box and was like, ah s***. The box was terrible so i assumed that it was guna be beat up. So i proceed to unbox my bumper, then i come to find, it was fine! Looked great, the black coating looked good too. Havnt had a chance to go out and test the durability of it though but it looks tough so i can't be too bad... Everything lined up fine and looks good. I would definitly buy again, will buy rear one from then, and definitly recomend it to anyone looking for a front bumper

I learned my lesson from eautogrilles. I ordered one set of rocksliders and they sent me another. Let's see how this exchange/return goes

The bumper works good, I've pushed down small 3-4 trees with mine. Been pulled out using the d-rings on the front. It has one dent on the bottom of the tube where I slammed it down on a rock pretty dang hard. Just a small dent though. The only cons I see is the finish sucks. Get you a can of spray on bed liner for touch up.

Looks good E.You going to get the matching rear? Keep an eye on the D-rings. One of mine, driver side, had a tendency to back out..It did until I hooked my winch line to it.....LOL

Yes it is around 100lbs. I do standing curls with 110lbs so I know how heavy 100lbs is when picking it up at your feel and yes its not that much but don't make fun cause I'm litterally only 145lbs and 5' 11" haha install? Easy! It took half hour and that's unboxing, taking the old one off, putting the new one on and taking all the pictures hah just remember to neverseize (sp?) The bolts when you put it back together.

Diver: thanks, ill put a dab of locktight on them so no worries hah naw I don't like the matchin rear but I'm gettin a rear. I like the small rockcrawler ones

I have that bumper pretty beefy. Ran it into some hard objects with no damage. Only disappointment was that the bottom hole for mounting were off a bit, but easily fixed with the drill.

I bought the stinger front bumper with the winch mount. 183Beast I had the same problem with mine. I have a yj and I was disappointed to see that instead of using all factory 4 bolts on top it only used 2. Do Tj's just have 2 bolts? I will be adding a square washer and a plate that will tie the two bolts together for extra strength. Anyone else have this problem??
