well, now that that rant is over lets talk driving impressions. Didn't do alot of driving, just down the road. didn't feel to different. found a dark parking lot. Where my jeep will usually on do a power brake if I manually shift it to 1st, Kept it and drive, stepped on the brake, and mashed the go pedal and a bunch of white smoke filled my rearview. So I'm guessing there is a little but of power to be had.

And since I bought a set of 4 it gave me an additional 50 bucks off. So I got them all for 162.78 shipped. Me and about 8 others I know of took advantage of it before they realized their mistake.

Looks like the hole wallowed a little bit, maybe the Johnny Joint, but doubtful. Those things are solid. I bet your bolt/nut combo wasn't tight enough when you did the installation. Replace the bolt for sure.

Get a bigger impact wrench and tighten that sucker down really good. I don't foresee any catastrophic failure at all there. You should have grade 8 hardware there. Gotta get up pretty early in the morning to shear it....well, unless you're Arlo

Worst case, you might have to throw a skinny washer in there to take up some slop.

Always update bolts to grade8 bolts to fit the new parts.

What did you use to paint your grill and did you sand it first? Mine is chrome and want it black
