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.

New Mexico Driving Rules...
  • As a general rule, the vehicle most in need of a significant amount of bodywork (for which the driver is most likely uninsured) always has the right of way.
  • Never use directional signals when changing lanes. They only serve to give away your next move, causing most NM drivers to speed up and not let you in. In fact, use of directional signals within most large NM city limits is actual illegal.
  • NM law states that at least 50% of all paved surfaces within the state must be under construction at any one time. In all construction zones, at least half of the available lanes must be closed, regardless of whether any actual construction is be accomplished or not. Construction signs shall be regularly repositioned in order to warn drivers about upcoming lane closures immediately after they pass the last exit before traffic backups.
  • Driving through constructions zones with upcoming lane closures is a popular game in NM. Itís called the "speed up and pass as many cars as you can, then see how close to the lane closure you can squeeze back into traffic before hitting any of the orange construction barrels" game.

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?
