|infamousbliss||i have a 4k winch in a basket that can slide into the rear receiver. combine it with a tree saver and snatch block and i should be good to go.(after i install the quick disconnect.)|

|Giancarlo||why didnt you put a rear bumper with a winch on it|
|01-22-2009 08:16 PM|
|infamousbliss||no frame tie-ins. i drilled two holes and then i didn't want to drop the tank. so i shorted it 4 bolts for today. next week it will be on a lift and we'll be taking it down. all bolt holes lined up front and back. smooth transition. the rear is accessory friendly. i need to get a hitch but not yet.|

|distortedtj||looks good bud.|
|01-22-2009 08:07 PM|
|distortedtj||Looks good bud. I notice the rear is not a swingout,, did it still come with the frame tie-ins?|

|infamousbliss||all hardware was replaced with grade 8 hardware from fastenal. $14.40|

So today in the nicest of weather i installed a smittybilt xrc rock crawler front bumper and a smittybilt rock crusher rear bumper. the installs went fairly easy with the exception of one bolt on the front bumper , but a quick fix was to weld a nut on the torx bolt and wah la. it took me a total of 3 hours for both installed and of course that included smoke and beer breaks. here are the pics for you. sorry i didn't get many from the install but i was busy working and forgot to take the pics. oh yeah i purchased the d-ring mounts on the front bumper seperatley off ebay. i did save $30 of the rear bumper from smittybilt because i sold the d-rings that came with the bumper back to smittybilt. everything came out fairly easy and no busted nuckles. i know the winch is missing but it's in the mail. a smittybilt xrc8 ($325 on ebay). enjoy

|infamousbliss||well as you can see in the above pictures that what appears to be ground is actually snow and ice covered.|
|01-21-2009 09:10 PM|
|infamousbliss||hahaha i should have seen that before. thanks|
|01-21-2009 08:27 PM|
I had to remove my rear body mounts when i took off my bumper..
Doesnt matter if you have or dont have a bl, its the same. Body lift pucks go on top, the bottom where the bumper bolts are remains stock.
Also Infamousbliss is that suppose to be ground?
Where's YOUR Playgound!!
|01-21-2009 08:13 PM|
|infamousbliss||lol..i'll give her a good bath before i ship it.|
|01-21-2009 07:40 PM|
oh and wipe off that mass. snow before you ship. i dont want it co-mingling with my pure nny snow. it might form a new crossbreed of snowflake..
|01-21-2009 07:36 PM|
consider your stock bumper sold. speepdaedeesi=cheepdaedeesi=iseedeadpeeps
--edit:--payment sent--. send me a pm to confirm, and a pm when ya ship it if you dont mind.
thanks, and good luck with the new bumper! and dont forget the hardwarez
|01-21-2009 07:21 PM|
|infamousbliss||i thought about doing that. i have a fastenal near bye me. i should swing through on my way to my buddy's house. they're pretty good down there. i walk in with a bolt or two and bam they have my new pieces in hand almost instantly. good store.|
|01-21-2009 07:00 PM|
If you have anymore questions let us know.
Also I highly suggest swapping out all the hardware that comes with the kit with Grade 8 bolts.
|01-21-2009 06:56 PM|
|infamousbliss||thanks for the heads up, much appreciated. the instructions say it's not neccesary but it makes installation easier.|
|01-21-2009 06:53 PM|
|infamousbliss||yeah i don't have a bl yet put future plans include a 1 inch one. a couple of my buddoes said they didn't have to remove theirs but one of them bought their jeep with the rear bumper already on it and the other has a 2 inch body lift.|
