where did you get you hitch receiver cover? I've been looking for a decent looking one for a variety of sports teams and haven't seen anything like yours.

rim size doesn't matter, its all about the rubber I'd craigslist those 19s. too expensive to replace the tires.

Very nice! I can't wait to get one of those myself. Absolutely love all of the different options and setups you can have with that bumper. Get tired of one look, pop on (or off) some other end caps, a stinger, etc.

Looks great!

As soon as the tires are done, she'll be getting new rims and shoes. Plan to sell the 19's on craigslist then

It's powder coated steel. It is a local place for me. That's why they make OkState stuff. You might contact them for a custom order, they might be able to do something for you.

Mastercraft CT in the 235/85/16. Don't want to hear it, I like the "pizza-cutter" look. Now I'm going to re-plastidip the wheels and then shoot with a bedling spray....all black.

I yanked my stocker a couple of weeks ago. Wish I would have done that when I bought it last year. I like the look too. Going to get the EVO D Rings to finish it off.

I also want to know what that sticker is too that's on the frame of the rear right passenger side. Probably take a pic, archive it, and remove said sticker.

If you get in a rear end collision will your insurance (or the persons who hit you insurance) cover the damage by not having a bumper on the rear? Part of most policies state you must maintain the working capabilities of safety equipment. I would assume this is the bumper as well.

The bumper is complete plastic that's bolted to the frame. I don't even see how it protects other than from scratches. But you have a valid question, I'll have to look.

Thanks,
Did two coats. Looks dark but when the lights are on I can barely tell the difference. Yes. Stock bulbs.

Dude it looks great. Do what you want. My 2 cents (since everyone else is giving it) is leave it alone. Looks great like that.

I saw that you answered my question. Thanks. How hard was the install. This might be my birthday or Xmas present. I like it a lot.

I have a garage but no rain car. I did convert to my soft top for the summer. Easy up and down when needed.

Well I am the first to admit that it is Chinese made and some of the holes didn't wanna line up... But obviously I made it work. You have to enlarge the outer top holes on the frame.. I had to elongate them down some to get those bolts in. And the plates on the front that help mate the center and end pieces I had to drill and retap the inner hole on each side. So other than that it was cake. Since I liked the look and that's all I was caring about I didn't worry about the Chinese made part.. And now that its on it feels VERY solid anyway.

It looks like it covers the button and lock. Is that the case? Can u post a couple front view pics and with it open? I hate the hard plastic stock armrest.

I do like have the soft top back there. 3 weeks ago I was coming back from daughter's softball game and it started pouring. No doors no top. Drove under a tree and put the top on real quick. Still got wet. But would have been more if soft top wasn't there. Enjoy!!

I was thinking about those too, but what if someone hits me from behind, will it bend my rear frame? About the sticker, it's the factory serial number part. I like it, makes me feel like its still new...

I like that antenna. I've been thinking of adding a splash of red myself.

Front and rear bumpers done. Also front skid. Now just tire carrier. I was trying to do it myself and front bumper slid off frame and came down and smacked my hand and chest but no harm to bumper.

Are you sure that isn't a pop top injury?
