Think of using beads to constantly balance your tire. The rings contain the beads in a fluid they're just mounted between the hub and the wheel and they balance is your tires. Longer tire life, less vibes etc. I'll be updating how they work in my build thread tomorrow.

Mad Mac Got the Jeep Cave organized. The doors are positioned on some scrap 2X12. A couple of old saw horses will hold the top high enough to drive under part way and close the garage door.

ARB Rear Bumper, Black - ARB-5650310

Retail is $760.95 + 9.99 s/h I paid 610 with free shipping. Seems they forgot the hitch support bar that goes behind the stock mount plate. Just gonna have a friend cut some flat stock and drill some holes. Totally worth saving 150 and a free set of frame box adapters.
This thing is so damn heavy, and solid. The front bumper and winch make my front end drop more than 2 inches.
You lucky dude! Good luck on the install and post some pictures of it.

Got my new ARB rear bumper in today.

Took a chance at Morris 4x4 and bought the "scratch and dent" one for ~$150 less than new with free shipping.

Boy was it a great score!

It was in absolute perfect condition. They had said that some of the mounting hardware may be missing but it should be easy to get at the hardware store or Fastenall. Well.... it was all there and more!! There was a set of frame rail tie-ins shoved in the bottom of the box - I was going to buy a set of Poison Spider ones. Also it looks like a full hardware set for the tire carrier and mount plate. Now i get to play detective and piece this thing together.
I checked their website and only saw the bumper with tire carrier. Where's the regular bumper w/out carrier? How much did you pay?
