BigAG And maybe another with both those and the rear w/tire carrier.
Yesterday 01:11 PM
BigAG Ryan I'm almost set on pulling the trigger on the trail force front bumper w/leds & front skid plate.
Is it possible you can send me a price quote on both together?

It looks awesome bolted up! I know you'll be happy with how it performs on the trail. Let me know if you need anything else from us!

Texan,

Congrats on the Jeep! You're going to have a blast modding it.

The Barricade Classic Rear Bumper and Tire Carrier you're looking at mounts to the rear cross member in the factory holes like most aftermarket bumpers. You can check out he Install Instructions here.

You can get frame tie-ins for an even more secure mount. Let me know what questions you have or if you'd like a quote on anything!

I'm glad the bumper held up so well for you. I'm sure the deer doesn't feel the same way! Are you going to be able to get a take off flare? If not let me know and I'll see what I can do on a price for you.

You're right, you shouldn't get a ton of sag with those springs and the pucks. The front bumper is 71lbs and the rear is 88lbs. The 19/60s will be even more resistant to sag so they'll help if the weight gets you down.

If the shocks you got are long enough for the 2.5" lift then I would go with that before getting stiffer OE springs. But that's just my opinion! You can always install the bumpers and see where that leaves you, height and level-wise.

Let me know what other questions you have or if you'd like a quote on that lift!

Rigid E2 10" lightbar,

I wanted to do a write up of running the lighting power cable through the bull bar of the barricade bumper. It had its challenges but I like the finished result. you will most likely need to remove the bumper to make this easier on yourself. I had to weld a plate across the light tabs since the spacing of the light bar and the tabs on he barricade bumper didn't line up. I knew this going in so it was no big deal. Picture of new plate welded and primed.



Here you can see the hole I drilled below the light tab on the drivers side.



The hole at the base of the bull bar is already there on the drivers side. you will need a flashlight to see it as its between the two plates that make up the bumper.



Now making the holes is one thing but running the wire was another battle. You will probably need someone to help you with this part. I ended up using fishing string with fishing weights tied to one end and lowering it through the hole in the bull bar down toward the hole on the base of the bumper. a shop vac at the exit hole may help as well to guide the weight and fishing line out of the hole. I then pulled the rope seen in the picture through so i wouldn't worry about the fishing line breaking. When ruining the wires.

Once you get that part done you will want to run the wire out a side hole toward the center of the bumper so its not protruding and exposed out of the bottom.


I then ran the actual wire before re-installing the bumper. From there you are good to run it into the engine compartment. Here are some pics of the final install.

Hope this helps if anyone is looking to do something similar.
That looks great! Thanks for the write-up. Like most projects this was pretty involved and not the easiest, but the results are well worth it in my opinion!

Now..... onto the next project. When I got the Spod I ordered switch covers from OTRATTW.

Since I was ordering some I decided to order one for a future rear light.

The question is where should I mount the rear lights on the barricade rear bumper? If anyone had installed some can you upload a pic or describe where and how you mounted them. I have come up with 2 possible locations and tried to depict them in this picture as red or orange.

Red locations would require a flush mount light and cutting into the bumper with a plasma cutter or similar. which I have access to if i decide to go that route.

Orange would require mounting to the tire carrier somehow and the additional challenge of running the wires in a neat way.

Thoughts/comments or other locations that come to mind? Thanks in advance.
My opinion would be to flush mount the lights in the bumper. I love the look of that. I had round lights in my LOD Signature Rear Bumper when I bought it and I added sockets inside those housing to have additional stop/turn lights in the back of my rig. Those combined with the traditional third brake light in the center of the spare means I have 4 turn signals (2 each way) and 5 brake lights. You can miss me when you're driving behind me!

I would use an "L" bracket to mount the lights on the carrier and running the wiring should be easy is route it all to the spindle and then into/under the tub. I love lights and really like your idea. I hope you do a write-up if you go forward with this idea!

There's an FJ that lives on my street and mounted a single KC in the center of his spare. Clean and simple. Easy to run wires and allows for bigger tires. I can't imagine it's too much of a hassle when changing

Mounting on the actual tire swing will be your easiest route, especially for future maintenance purposes. Wire routing would be easy to run cleanly, so long as you give enough slack for movement when the swing is fully open, avoiding snags. No cutting necessary, just have to make sure your mounting bolts are long enough to clear the bar. Don't forget to position in a manner that would clear a bigger tire in case you ever decide to go a size bigger. All this being said, it's clearly about what you prefer. Good luck and let us know how it turns out.
