thanks for all the positive feedback, keep it comming and i will continue to add pictures and answer questions. as far as the bumper goes it did have some shipping damage to the mount flanges that will need to be addressed before i install but the quality seems fair. thanks for all the feedback

Great job man. I'm looking forward to seeing the bumper mounted. I've had my eyes on the same one for a few months now.

paint and projectors

thanks bigmac89, the paint came from my local jobber, as far as the projector lights go i love the look but have not wired them up yet. if i have a chance this weekend i will wire them up and take a few pictures at night shinning them on my garage door to show if the beam scatters or not

What's your impression of the bumper now that it's installed? Do you feel like you could make 10,000 lb winch pulls without issues? I've been considering that one for a while since it's about $120 cheaper than the best price I could find on the XRC.
