I was perusing FLEA Bay the other week, and came upon some company that was selling these tube rear bumpers with oversized tire carriers from Paramount Offroad. Read a few reviews, the main thing I was looking for was that the bolt holes actually lined up.
They had the Make an Offer so I did, and got a good price (or so I thought). I tried using their shipping calculator and it was No Joy there.
So, picked up the good old fashioned land line and gave them a jingle. The guy I talked to, Jonathan Ri, gave me a BETTER price on the phone than what I got on Best Offer. Shipping came out to about 80 bucks (damn thing is heavy as hell) and I got it last night. Took me and my boy about an hour to get both pieces unboxed and unwrapped. Whoever they have working in their shipping department knows his/her job very well.
I plan on installing this after Christmas, depending on if I can get a buddy of mine to help. The boy will help too, but I don't think he can hold the bumper up enough to have me get the bolts started. Maybe with my floor jack and the jack stands. Hmmm, have to think about that one. Time to start the PB BLaster on it. Problem is our highs are below freezing and should prove to make the job a bit more interesting.
I will post pics and any issues that come along. Fun times!!!
