It took me a year and a little less than a year but man i put every single cent that i didnt use for gas into mysaving to my jeep thanks for the compliment! i think its the first compliment on the pads thanks!
I like the pads, I'm getting ready to due my superduty, I bought the tubing already and was trying to figure what to do for the steps, need them for the wife and kids. Then my jeep sliders, haven't bought the metal yet. I'll check Wally world this weekend for the pads, hopefully they carry them here in az.

What do you guys think? the reason i think it would be nice having these is because i have all the factory wiring there n would hate for it to go to waste so i think i might as well use what i got so i think this would be a nice little add on! a little welding never hurts so....
what do you think? Lets take a vote

Probably heavy as hell...I wouldn't want that much weight on my front but to each his own . Looks pretty good on the WJ though.

bumper weighs 140 pounds! not bad for a steel bumper its only 80 pounds more than a fiberglass one.... if you look at it that way i would rather have something that is easy to fix if scrapped on a rock

Thats pretty steep but not as bad as I was expecting. I assumed you would be looking at 160lbs give or take.

i dont know how being set back in the bumper will affect the light output in front as it seems it would be cutoff from the middle but if you want to i say go ahead.

does the bumper come prepainted?
