Nates 4x4 all around

Hey all! I posted back in August'ish when I put my Nates 4x4 Model 1 front bumper, stubbed down to 38".

Now I am posting the rest of my Nates stuff which completes the Jeep in Nates 4x4 all around

Rear bumper and swing away tire carrier. Bumper has dring tabs, 2" reviever, and had Nate put a CB antenna mount.

Looks solid, I have his front bumper. I sucked at painting it and ended up paying a bit much for the powder coat. I wish he'd send it coated for me. How do you like the rear carrier, I'll have to buy one within the next year or so.

First off, not sure how that last photo snuck in there!

Anyway, luckily a buddy of mine works with a guy that has a body shop style paint room in his back yard! He will be acid washing, priming, painting and helping with install! Doesn't want any $ either!!! If he won't take the money from me I will be hiding it in his jeep somewhere!

Timeline is sometime this week painting and the install on Friday! I am soooo stoked because this was my Christmas present/fantasy football leagues Super Bowl payouts present! Would have had the stuff earlier but my buddy took forever to give me my winnings.

Nates 4x4 review: he has really done a lot in terms of customer service since some bad review in the past. This is my second time working with him and he is awesome! Sends pics when you ask, replies to all calls and texts, and a really great guy to talk jeep with. All products were received with'in' 3 weeks of payment. And if he doesn't have a mod listed on his website, just ask an he will do it!

Oh yea, MADE IN USA!!!! To boot!!!

My front bumper I just bed lined it, and very happy with how it came out. Can't give a review on the swing just yet as I have not installed it...look out for my posts after this weekend. It's very solid though!

Also forgot to mention that I will be installing some delta lug nut lights too.

I don't know if I like the idea of having all that weight on just one point. That seems like the weakest way to set up a carrier system. All in all I'm sure you'll like it, have fun! very exciting!

I have is front bumper. I really like it well built and made in Michigan don't see how you can go wrong. If I get to the point of replacing the rear number I'll defiantly order from Nate.

So unfortunately I have been in the hospital with my 15 month old daughter and will be for quite some time. But my buddies have pulled together to get these primed, painted and installed while I am in the hospital with my little princess. Here are two pictures I was sent if the bumper and sliders primed. They will be getting painted this weekend and installed next Monday! Gotta love good friends!

Looks awesome! I really like how well everything goes together, especially the sliders any front bumper. What size is your front bumper, 38"?

Yes sir! That's the shortest the model 1 can be stubbed down to. The options on it are the brush guard, light tabs, dring tabs, integrated winch plate and grade 8 hardware.

Interesting, when I go to nates to build my model one, I have all the same options as yours, but no option to stub it down. Did you have to call nates to make it happen? I believe as of now, it would be a 52", I'm looking to bring that down a bit.

Awesome, I am pretty much sold on this bumper at this point, just need measure up how long I want it to be. I would like to keep stock fog light mounts but got as short as possible.

Anyway, got any more pictures? Particularly of the rear in some daylight

Thanks 99tj, today we are hoping and praying for a successful extabation (taking her off the ventilator).

As far as more pics, as soon as I am back with my jeep I can, but that could be upwards of a month. But when I am back I can take any pics you want. I am always more then Happy to advertise a product for someone that is quality.

Hope your daughter is doing well.

When you (or your buddies) get a chance, can you slide a regular hitch or accessory into the hitch receiver and tell us if it pins up correctly without having to do any sawing or extra hole drilling??

Thanks!

Well I can't tell you that my locking pin goes through. I haven't put my hitch carrier in yet but I did make sure the pin went through. But I will definitely let you know how full test goes.

How did the components mount onto your Jeep? Any issues or modifications you had to make to accommodate for the bumpers once you received them??

I am going to say no for now, because my buddies didn't say they had to, although they may hav had to. I am talking to one of them today so if I remember I will ask. But I am pretty sure that they all lined up perfectly.
