Awesome thank you. Also, what was your opinion on the two additional fogs you can put in the middle of the hoop?

If your not buying the winch version of the XHD then the lights look great.

Optimum No Rinse Wash, (or Quick Detailer, if it isn't too much pollen) and a MF Towel.

How long did it take you guys to install this bumper? Trying to figure out if I have time to install this evening.

Less than 3 hours if you have help. I did it by myself and it took 5. But I had to do it the hard way, Plus beer.

How much do you think your stubby bumper and hoop without a winch would weigh, and can you remove the grill with them on the jeep? looks like you can. Thinking about this same setup in the stainless version. oh and do you have the skid plate on there as it is hard to tell?

Ok, started at 630 this evening and just wrapped up about 15 minutes ago. Had a little help from my boys (7 & 8). Anyone know a better way of removing those cheap plastic screws? I just sawed & chiseled through them, hope I don't need those back. Even took time to measure the front fender well height before & after, I don't think there was any change, at least with the stubby, hoop & Warn M8000 without the controller. Figure we'll wrap up the rest of the front tomorrow but I might stay stubby for a while to see how I like it.

Gnite all

:tired:

looks good, mine did not sag in the begining either but eventually it did so now I'm adding a budget boost....although I have a sport and you have a rubi so your suspension may hold the weight better

The stubby bumper by itself was about 75lbs, maybe less. Very easy to handle and work with. It took me longer to remove the old one than it did to install the new one. The hoop adds 8-10 lbs. I don't have a skid-plate yet. The frame offers a beveled quasi-skid plate underneath that follows the same angle as the bottom edge of the bumper. I'll try to post closer pics from the side when the rain lets up.

Thanks for the info. I don't think I will add a skid plate either. Buy the way send some of that rain out to Kansas as it is very dry!

I am putting my skid plate on tonight because the Motor for the sway bar disconnect is sitting out very exposed. Dont want to mess with that. Plus I saw all the scratches I had on the old plastic plate, so it must be doing something for me down there.
