Yeah Ive had that happen too. Sucks big time.

But still I ordered my winch plate on the 20th. It just now ships out today on the 26th? I had plans for the whole weekend including leaving early Saturday. Now this throws it all off.

Had to save a few bucks, and go the ebay route. All to save like $10. 4x4groupbuy sucks, just saying. haha. Should've gone through RC direct, and paid the $10 more.

Shouldn't take you to long as long as you have a good angle grinder and an extra set of hands it will go on quick.

Painted my soft 8's. Gun metal gray with metallic, then added a hunter green ring around them. In person the after the clear coat dried the green turned out to be really close to the body color of the jeep. Gonna give them a day or two before I put them on the jeep.

This morning I installed the front winch bumper I built. I painted it with Duplicolor bedliner.
I want to make a bolt on stinger/light mount at some point.

Winch plate wont be here till Monday. Ughh.

They offered me a full refund though. Including the shipping. I want the plate though, so they're gonna refund me the shipping costs still. So kinda works out. Ge about $25 back.

Just wish they would have told me it was gonna be late due to "backorder" earlier though.

2. Can you even buy just the rubber plug? Anybody ever found a better solution that doesn't leak besides encasing the plug in RTV (somebody did that to mine)
You can get plugs that expand by moving the bolt on the end of it.
