Just read some of the newer postings about spray paint. When I bed lined my PSC rock brawler mid, I used a couple of cans of self etching primer and probably 3 cans of Rust-Oleum bed liner. I did several coats of primer & bed liner allowing it to dry between coats.
It's been about 6 months since I painted my front, rear bumpers & spoiler and it is holding up well. I will touch up a chip from time to time but that is to be expected. Prep work is key, make sure the bumper is clean of any oils or surface rust that may have formed.

|JKUR37||How many cans of spray paint is needed per coat. When I get mine (or the brawler mid) it is either going to be a hammered finish or a bedliner finish.|

I love mine in bedliner black.

|Bearfan||What prep do you do to the bumper before spraying with bed liner?|

I can't wait to order this bumper- I'll have to wait until Ohio weather warms up a bit so I can rattle can it and have a buddy of mine help me install it.
BTW, the bumper turns out fine if you rattle can it (friend of mine just did his). I have ACE rock sliders and soon to install my ACE rear bumper w tire carrier and when parked next to my friend's jeep with his rattle canned PSC bumper, the powdercoat and rattle can combo looks fine together- just make sure you buy the right rattle can color/ texture!
Anyway, I found a better technique online to have the spider logo show a different color rather than using reflective tape. Basically, buy something such as a small aluminum sheet. Cut to size and shape as required with tin snips to serve as the "Spyder Plate". Paint this sheet once cut to size to desired color. Apply 3M Scotch-mount Molding Tape vertically on each side of the front of this plate to allow liquids, dirt, etc to flow through and clear the bumper and spider plate once installed. Then simply apply the plate to the inside of the bumper.

Sec. 504.943. OPERATION OF VEHICLE WITHOUT LICENSE PLATE. (a) Except as provided by Subsection (b), a person commits an offense if the person operates on a public highway, during a registration period, a motor vehicle that does not display two license plates that:

"'Front' means the foremost part or beginning of a vehicle, not in the front half, or in the front portion," Judge Cathy Cochran said in her majority opinion. "This meaning of 'front' as a location is not ambiguous and does not lead to an absurd result.

|jonboy||I only had to do a small amount of trim on the crash bar when installing it on my 2012 JKUR, even though the instructions said i had to cut a few inches off either side or remove it entirely. But I also had to remove 2 of the bolts used in mounting the skid to the bumper, as they were hitting the frame rails when trying to mount the bumper.|

|rundm||Well, they seemed well built while looking at them on the web. I can tell you that after looking mine over before taking it to get powder coated, it is incredibly well built. If anything were to happen to it under load, I would be incredibly surprised. It's a beast. I can't wait for it to be ready to install.|

|ohioviper||Wondering how sturdy this bumper is when using a wench. Anyone put a really good load on it with a wench ?|

|tlminh||Love this bumper, I go back and forth between the brawler bar and the stinger on a daily basis . . . not too many people have the stinger compared to the brawler bar, just need more pics|

I painted my own with rustoleum truck bed flat black, it has a texture.
Painted the day I got it, installed the next day, hung them from my kids play set using weed wacker cord

|JGreer||Ugghhh this whole waiting for powder coating is killing me! Should have mine on the Jeep by Wednesday!|

I haven't made up my mind yet on the front bumper there are to many to choose from and weight is a big issue with me because I'm not sure how long it will be till I lift mine.
Post some pics of your jeep when you get it and keep me posted on which bumper you go with

|Robfgert||stick it on the front dash and it be legal?|

It will still be a while before I get it on. I'm waiting on my rear Ace bumper to get here so I can have the powder coater match the finish. Last I checked I still had 2 - 4 weeks to wait on Ace. Stinks but it should be worth the wait.

Please post some pictures of yours when you get everything installed.
|04-11-2013 08:20 AM|
Have you spotted any photos of these on a stock Rubi?
(I noticed yours in your icon, mine is an inbound 2DR same color and wheels)
I'd pull the trigger on this bumper, but I've been looking for one mounted on a stock Rubicon just to see.
Ya know, sometimes those first mods just don't look right unless you're a little lifted with some bigger tires

I'm glad you had posted pics and I think another forum member too. It gave me a chance to see the fit of a Warn Zeon winch on this bumper. I ordered the Zeon 10-s today. Wooohoo but ouch that was expensive! Just empty every pocket!
