JCR Impressions Part 2

I got my two JCR bumpers in the mail yesterday and did another test fitment. Everything was very straightforward and bolted up perfectly. So far I am very happy with the quality of these bumpers. Here are some pictures.






I dropped everything off at the powder coater this morning and they said it should be done in 7-10 business days. I don't think I can make it that long!

I have their rear bumper w tire carrier and love it.. did some rock crawling recently and it held up to several bumps and scrapes very well.. went out last weekend and filed, sanded and painted some of the spots, but there was very little damage given how much I had to use it.
it should be noted that unless you cut the cross member in the rear, the depth of the hitch area is shallow and you will likely have to drill additional holes in your hitch, not a big deal, just one of those things.

my front just shipped yesterday and should be here on friday. I'm just going to prime and rattle can some bedliner on it. Those sides look nice, might have to get a set.

I though about doing that but I would rather not mess it up since I spent over $1000 on the set. The powder coating is going to cost an extra $425 but I can live with that. I did my fenders and stock bumpers and had a little over spray.

Thanks for the tip on the hitch. I don't plan on using it really since my wife's Grand Cherokee can tow but it is good to be aware of.

I powdercoated mine too. It's a lot more durable finish

I just didn't want to mess up $1000 bumpers/sliders by drunkenly spraying bedliner on them.

$425 to powder coat 2 bumpers?! Damn, I'm in the wrong business.
