Looks nice. I have there DIY bumper kit and love it. It looks like they don't sell it anymore which is a shame cause a friend of mine wants one.

Got it painted up with semi gloss enamel and ready to bolt on tomorrow, turned out great.

Mocked it up and it fits great.

That's just sexy man. I'm glad you showed other views of it I'm more convinced now this is what I want. What does it weigh if you don't mind me asking?

If they'd put a 2" receiver hitch on that, or set it up to mount a bolt-on pintle/2" setup, then we'd have the perfect rear bumper/hitch setup.

That thing looks freaking awesome! I wish I could run one of those and ditch my current spare tire carrier in favor of the bestop unit. Sadly, I must have a hitch since my Jeep is my only vehicle right now.

You may want to give Dave or Jeff a call. They have been known to customize their bumpers for extra, someone else has asked about a reciever hitch as well!

Thanks Ageless, its labor intensive to put on, you must cut the factory crossmember under your bumper, so that the shackles will be keyed into the frame, and you must drop the tank a few inches. Nothing you can't do The increased clearance and departure angle is great! Like I said above, they just might be able to add a reciever!

Well finally got it on, had to drop the tank 4" get longer 1/2" bolts, new nuts, all grade 8 zinc, and then cut the factory crossmember, and slid it on. Looks amazing! I cant wait to try it out now.
