This bolt has those tricky nuts on the other side that fooled us earlier. We will need the same size open end wrench to
Tighten them up and now it's the steering box bolts. You will need this size:
I had to install my c-roke brace and steering box, and you will be doing pretty much the same thing with your box and
Again, tighten the steering box bolts clockwise and TIGHT. I dunno the factory torque specs on these bolts, nor do I
care. I just put them super freakin tight with some blue locktight. They aren't going anywhere.
Now we are pretty much done but before we sit back and check out the new winch bumper, let's see what the scorecard
Yup, the bumper won 6-0. That's how many times i struck my head on the newly extended winch bumper that just
happens to extend right over your head (if your jeep is high enough). It hurt.....bad.
After retreiving an ice pack from the freezer, we can now stand back and check out our new accessory added to our
A paper towel holder:
the only one on the market today.
This project is not completed yet. You are only half done. Now you have to decide whether you wanna re-use your factory bumper or modify an aftermarket bumper to fit on it. I chose to go with my factory bumper cuz i'm cheap.
I was gonna give you a write-up on how to cut it but my gf was a little ticked seeing her camera covered in grease and dirt from my hands during the installation of the paper towel holder. "It happens" i told her but that ended up with no camera to use. I did manage to sneak a few completed shots. Don't tell her please...shh!
You can see the big gap below the bumper from when we threw away that center piece. I am in the process of cutting the end caps to shorter so they line up with that center section. It'll give me more ground clearance too.
How far it sticks out and what my head battled against...
Well, that's that. I hope this helps enough to prevent you guys from installing the bumper upside down or something.

Love the bumper hate your write up! J/K man, you have way too much time on your hands.
also can we get a two page write up of where and how you put the decal on with blurry pictures of windex and pics of you trying to remove the backing with those sweet gloves on. And hey, you get to use your brand new paper towel holder!!
