So I was very lucky at Jeep Beach, I won quite a few things during the raffle and one of them being a VPR bumper. Right now I am running the Rugged Ridge XHD bumper with the stinger. I really like this VPR bumper, it flows with the Jeep's lines and I havent seen or found anyone running it. The bumper retails for $985 so it is much more expensive than my RR bumper. Here is a picture from VPR's website.



What do you think?

Congrats on your win! Looks pretty good! Well, looks good if you end up with one, but no way I'd spend a grand on it...

Yeah, I'd never ever ever be able to afford or pay for a bumper like that but it's on its way to my house right now for free.

Ya' lucky bastid!!

I came away empty handed from the raffle tickets. :/ A guy standing right next to me won an AEV rear diff slider and a Yeti cooler.

I only put tickets in the buckets for the sPod, Warn Zeon, some LED lights, and a snorkel.

Congrats on the win man. I'm anxious to see the new bumper on your Jeep. I like the bumper. I've never seen that one before.

Thanks man, I put $100 in the first day and won a recovery kit and a $200 gift card to Genesis Offroad. Then Sunday they held another raffle for the unclaimed prizes and I put $20 into that and won the bumper.

We had a great time and what beautiful weather. I saw you in the lines waiting for the obstacle course but was rushing to a CB giveaway with Lonewolf05.

Hope you had a good time! We still need to get together on a trail ride with Tabber02 when he gets back from DC.

Sold the bumper, keeping what I got. It didn't fit my winch which came from my old jeep and has sentimental value to me.
Gonna use the money for a rear tire carrier.

So we just installed the Teraflex monster adjustable trackbar and wow what a difference. Bumpstear is gone and the handling is vastly improved. The steering is so crisp it's like I'm back on stock tires.

I highly recommend!

I am so bad at this build thread, I also forgot to mention I added a teraflex hinged tire carrier and High lift mount. Install was a breeze, it is very good quality stuff. The jack mount is very quiet and I am very impressed.

I have been piecing together my suspension lately and just recently got some Front Lower and Rear upper Teraflex adjustable control arms. Due to my lack of garage and the terrible dear flies this time of year I had them installed at a local shop up the road. The install was very simple, I actually got to wrench under the Jeep at the shop.

First impressions, well the Terraflex Adjustable tracbar made huge improvements over the basic 2.5 terraflex coil lift I had. Now these control arms made it even better! The jeep is tracking perfecly down the road. There is absolutley no more wander on the interstate and the steering has the responsiveness back. I am very happy with this.

I didnt think my jeep drove that bad until I have started upgrading these parts. It is driving like a dream boat now. Next are gonna be the front uppers and rear lowers, rear tracbar and some new shocks.



I also received the license plate and brake light Off Road Only LD-PL6 - Off Road Only LiteDOT Plate Light - Quadratec

Very happy with the light output for the brake light and the nice white tag light built into the unit. The harness has a quick release for taking the tire off. I wired the negative and the brake light into the stock harness and then ran a line to the passenger side tail light for the plate light. easy mod and looks great at night.

Bushwacker flat fenders just ordered off Amazon for a great price. These should open up the wheel wells for some more flex room.

Installed the bushwacker flat flares. Very nice product. Install was a PIA mostly due to a lack of light at the time of install.

Very happy with the outcome. Thanks Tabber02 and Lonewolf05 for the help.

The upper holes are too narrow.
