First off I'm extremely sorry that you received a bumper without light cutouts. I don't have full access to your order info at home, but if you are whom I think you are (guessing by your location), I can tell you that I drop shipped lights to you two days ago, and they were delivered yesterday.

That tells me that your order was in fact marked with lights on our shipping software. So there must have been a mix up in boxing, or labeling. 100% our fault, and we will do everything we can do to make it right, and you happy.

As far as the time frame, I can't apologize for that. We don't hide that it can take 10 business days for items to leave our shop.

Once again, the mix-up was our fault, I understand it's insanely frustrating, please give us the opportunity to make it right.

Why do you guys care so much about weight? If you bash your quarters and care about the body at all just protect it. Is it not that simple? I have hit mine a couple times and can see their benefit. If I have a tendency to hit something, I protect it as best I can. For example, my rocker replacement probably added nearly 180lbs to my jeep if not more...

Exactly how I feel. I don't want my Jeep to be a pig, but I've bashed in the 1/4's on every Jeep I've had, and blown out a few windows because of it. I'd be running them on my ZJ but no one sells them and I've been too lazy to build any yet. It's not like we're building racecars and every pound counts.

Unless you're tipping the scale at 4500lbs, I wouldn't worry to much about weight

We are planning to wheel March 23rd at Crozet. So, between now and then, I got some stuff to do. First off, I got to give it up to monkeyevil at JCR for helping me out. I bought some nut strips from them LAST summer. They didn't fit right, but I slapped them in since I had a wheeling trip to get ready for and didn't have time to send them back. Well, I told him about how they didn't fit well and how I ended up cross threading them to get me by. He sent a new set out Wednesday, free of charge, and according to tracking, should be here tomorrow. So again, BIG thanks to the guys at JCR. I will be dealing with you guys again!

As for getting stuff done before wheeling, two things need to happen. First, get the front 5100's in. Second, get the HD Engineering relocations in. And last, measure for the rear 5100's I need to order. 12 inch travel shocks should work, just need to get my ext./col. lengths. I might actually order them before the 23rd!

Yeah I landed on my front more times than I can count but if I can lessen the chances I am for it. I was almost just thinking about cutting out the turn signals and headlights and running some hellas and a little LED signal. But we will see what time and money allows.

Is that a Ranger in front of you? Any more pics?

I love snow wheeling, I bet you guys don't get the chance too often though. It's a good excuse to get stupid with the skinny pedal

Actually we get a decent a amount of snow every year. The mountains are basically our backyard so there is snow there all the time. Yeah, the Ranger was on 33" Boggers and no lockers. He did good, but broke a Warn hub right there where the pic was taken. The TJ fender you see in the other pic was a TJ on 38's w/ a 5.7 in it. It sits too high for my taste, but it kicked a$$ in the snow. Another guy that came had a YJ that had a 3 link front and 4 link rear. Wish I got a pic, it was sweet. On a side note, my next tire may just be a 36" Irok. I love those tires. Just wish they were street friendly.
