|Potts||I like this... So you lose the factory tow hooks though right? I guess they're not needed if you put the d-rings on... Stinks the dring mounts and rings themselves are another $90 bones though. Would different d ring mounts work on this? Or is that a good price on them anyway?|

I want to sell my set up as well. Want a real bumper

|ESP||So that means I'm selling my Rough Country Stubby bumper end caps for the stock bumper then. Anyone here in NC interested?|

|ESP||LoL wolf, I do think I would regret not having the one with holes for the fog lights.|

It's really easy to splice the wires, if that's what you need to do. Trust me...I'm an electrical simpleton, and I've now put three sets of aux lights on my Jeep. On all 3, I had to cut out the harness and attach spade connectors (think grilling fork) to hook em up to my sPOD.
Next tornado that rolls through here, I'll be able to fix city-wide electrical probs.

Thanks for the pictures on splicing. I don't know where the bumper is made just that it's by Rough Country and is at a good price. It has the look I want with or without a winch, offers a seating for the factory fog lights and comes as a true stubby with little weight.
I'd like to keep the factory fog lights but honestly its not a deal breaker for me to not have them. The other one they offer which doesn't have the holes for the lights is only $189 vs $229. Hmmm....

I like this bumper. I wonder if it is beefy enough at 3/16" for using as a hi-lift jack point? That's one thing I would want to make sure before buying it.
SPLICING THE WIRE
I'm by no means an expert on the subject. I did some research before extending the power wire on my CB, to the battery. I think your best bet would be to get solderless connectors that clamp on both ends and heat shrink tubing. You would want to take the wire they give you to the hardware store to get the right gauge solderless connector. The heat shrink will make it totally waterproof. You just use a lighter for about 2 seconds to get it to shrink wrap itself.
A better connection would be made with a soldering iron, but that would be probably pretty damb hard if the wires are short.
I have heard not to use the wire connector type below. They are made for home use. With vibration they will come undone.

|ESP||How hard is it to do the light extension? I have zero electrical experience. Any write ups?|

Thats what the other guy did to his RC bumper. It also shows what it looks like with factory flares. Which actually looks really nice.
Here is the link to his thread, maybe it tells about the wiring mod or something not sure. But here ya go have fun reading his write-up

|ESP||I don't know how hard it would be to lengthen the lights if necessary. I may have to call them to see if this is true. I read on "another" forum that it was needed. I dunno.|
|09-25-2012 09:04 AM|
I like this bumper, I read a post on "the other forum" and the guy actually painted the center on the bumper silver to make it look like a Sahara bumper. From what I remember reading he was very happy with it. I think with the lights its just a minor wiring extension that needs to be made, this extension can probably be found online somewhere and it something easily corrected
I would consider getting this bumper because it allows the fogs to be used and actually moves them further apart to the ends, just seems better, also the price and appearance is nice...
Ill see if I can find the thread that I read and post a link.

Does anyone have this bumper? I have heard that one or both of the stock fog lights need to be lengthened to install correctly.
