They are Rugged Ridge LED tail lights, and got them from a local supplier, you can find them all over Ebay at some good prices.

Was there a particular reason you went with that winch over something like the xrc?

From the reading I did it seemed that it would do anything I would need it to do. Also for me I live in a small town I looked at price including shipping and how quick I would get it. Getting things is a lot slower here in Canada

Hooked up my CB, got a bracket that fits behind the right rear tail lite to hold the antenna. Added some washers to hold the bracket away from the body so I could run the cable into the tube under the bracket. I have seen so many with lots of cable hanging out to get caught by branches during trail riding

That is why I don't deal with eBay on bigger/more expensive items. You never know if or when you'll get them. Good luck on getting your bumper. I'd try to contact them about it, or try and file a dispute with eBay.

I did a search on thedirtworkx and if it is the same seller, they have perfect feedback. I would try to e-mail them or contact e-bay and open a claim. That should get their attention. It is probably just a fluke with such good feedback, 100%.

This is a great thread and a Great Build.

The bumper has just showed up from "thedirtworks" ordered from eBay was to be shipped after 14 days from payment
Many emails still took for ever. Should I rate the transaction as positive or negative ? It took 47 days shipping only took 6 days

Did they have to manufacture it before they shipped it? Ive noticed some shops on Ebay advertise that shipping will be delayed becuse they build to order, if this is the case I'd blame the slow shipping on the shipper, not the seller.

Edit: just re read your post...if it took them 47 days to get it out their door, that is unacceptable, especially if they advertised 14 days. Let them know youre pissed and give them a chance to make it right, like refund a portion or refund shipping or something. If they do nothing, Id leave negative.
