thanks much...im trying to find some straps to go on the rear bars to fix the broken zippers. thinking just some 1" velcro straps to go around and hold them and find some long enough that if i wanted to attach something to them i could. only problem is i dont know where to find what im looking for.

I would like to do some more cosmetic things for my jeep with the tax return, but replacing all the control arms, the rear track bar, and the engine must come first. After all that I need to replace the AC compressor, then I can start on the lights and bumpers. All of that should add up to a little over 2700$

Do you have any wiggle in that rear bumper tire carrier or is it solid?

Haha Ya I have not logged on in forever just come to read so I just seen it, I will pm you about them. Not to sure if I am retarded of what but I have the same rear tire carrier and mine has a decent amount of wiggle in it even with the bump stop. Do you have any pics of yours up close?

i do not have any up close but i can tell you the first time i installed it i put both steel plates between the bumper and cross member and i did have a lot of wiggle. when i re-installed it i took both plates out from between the bumper and put one on the back side of the crossmember and now its really tight. sometimes pretty difficult to close

I have one plate between the bumper and jeep, seems pretty solid that way as the hitch hits so I need at least one. My problem is that the hinge for the carrier is crazy loose, it does not tighten around the hinge. Bolts are tight as they go and there is still like a 1/16th of an inch or so, not to sure if I forgot something during the install.

Yep that is not there and was not when I unpacked it as I still have all of the boxes/packing. Emailed them to see about getting one, Thanks! I got most of the wiggle out with the bump stop but still was not happy with it as it does not feel solid to me.

something to consider picking up... a front receiver mount. i had one and then i got a winch and let me tell you. the front hitch was way more useful then the winch and its mounting. i am going to have to get a bumper that has a front hitch and a winch mount now.
