Love them. Great place to put all you parts and stuff. They do have a flat spot to install speakers. They bolt to the jeep so they won't move around. They are worth the money.

I would not put a speaker there, they're great to keep your recovery gear, mosquito repellent, first aid kit, rain jaket, a few tools, toilet paper etc...
so you like it? Is is good quality and not cheap like some plastic products?

thanks a bunch for the feedback. I just placed an order for a pair of them and to my surprise shipping was cheaper than they said. So thanks again

[QUOTE=JDNightFox;9210806]Obviously, you haven't taken Physics.

The terminal velocity of the square headlights is directionally preportional to the force of gravity decelerating the front wheels while the alternator is spinning at 3000 rpm's, minus the friction of the bumper pushing against the airflow with the 13 volt current the steering column is using during the time the vacuum motor is disengaged, but the mirrors must be directionally angled from the driver's window because the hood latches deflect the light refractioning down through the Nitrogen coat on the hood.[/QUOTE]

I just received a set of these and they are awesome. One problem though. They will not fit a fiberglass tub with out some fabrication. I had to take about and inch off the side. Oh and also you will have to mount them through the wheel wells because the brackets won't work. Just FYI. Other than that they are well worth the $.

Nice but I think I would have cleaned the area first or is that a test fit?

I made a new front bumper for my heep last week... 5/16 angle the width of the frame rails, plates in center are half moon shaped. Angle was cut so that plates could slide through and have weld on both sides. I beveled the plate and made 3 passes on every seam with my 110 wire welder. First test was a high lift under the plates. I lifted the jeep off of the ground 3 inches without any change in the bumpers shape. Bumper is welded to frame with a couple gussets on the bottom.



I like it more and more every day!




CONTACT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Time to do a little cutting...
