Bumpers and Armor

Finally found some bumpers and sliders I like for a reasonable price. The Front bumper is already here and mounted. Very high quality with a nice wrinkle powdercoat and seems like it will be very sturdy. The Rear and sliders should be here the middle of next week. The Front was $199 as were the sliders and the rear was $339 with the tire carrier.

They can be found on ebay ..

I have the front, very good bumper. Let us know how the rear is. I have 33" tires to mount on the rack.

Talk about a reduction in approach and breakover angle. Yuck.

Here are some pictures of the Front Bumper. I'll take more tomorrow after I mount the Super Winch. The Rear and Rock sliders will be here next Thursday.

Well you have to take into account where other people go wheeling, If I was going to do extreme rock crawling I would build a rock buggy and not try and convert my Jeep. The front bumper has plenty of approach angle for the rock crawling I do here in New England. Also the clubs in my area require a full size spare ( Same size ) so I need a sturdy rear with a swing out. Not really interested in putting it in the back, and I dont think the tail gate will last with 33's or bigger with an extended mount.

A club that has rules on what you have to have to wheel? Bull..

Find some friends and ditch that club, although you should have a full size spare, it shouldnt be forced upon someone.

That's how one of our local clubs is. Because if you get a flat and don't have a spare then you become everyone else's problem I guess. Don't agree with it but that's the way it is.

Our club requires it as well but nobody has ever left someone stuck with a flat... It's not a bad thing to have in the rules but you'd have to be a real prick to enforce it or leave someone hanging.

Run with no spare if ya wanna... we'll help you out but you WILL get hazed for it.

Not for the hobby... Just part of being in an organization.

Our club is a non-profit business and has to have a set of "rules" to cover our asses legally. Some are ridiculous but then again so is suing McDonald's because hot coffee burned you and it didn't say "HOT" on the lid somewhere.
