Looks like a good time. Although, your 'bumper' seems to be hating its life lol.

Ordered a gallon of gloss black chassis saver, to undercoat the jeep before winter comes!

It's a good lookin' rig!

If you ever have any questions about size or fit of our flares, or anything else, feel free to give us a call. Except this Thu/Fri! We'll be down in Moab this weekend for Fall Crawl, hosted by Moab Outfitters. If you're in the area, it's not to late to sign up. We'd love to see you there! Check out this link for details.

Thanks!

I wish I could be down there, sadly I live in ny.

Your flares are definitely on my list of next major upgrades. I just need to buy some baby things first before my fiancÚ kills me.

Do you have any idea of when you are going I release your bumpers?

Oh, yeah. Stay in the lady's good graces, for sure!

As far as bumpers... in a nutshell, after redesigning the steel mounting system for an easier install and more secure hold, going through all the prototyping and fitting with the fiberglass, we ended up with a product that is complete and we're very happy with it! But there's been one big snag: cost. The prices for laser cutting, steel bending, welding, etc. have simply gone up over the last couple years, forcing us to put a retail price on the bumper that we just don't feel is competitive.

Until we can find other suppliers of material and labor that are a little less expensive, the bumpers aren't ready for "prime time," you might say. However, we have been telling people that if they're REALLY set on this bumper, and don't mind the extra time and cost involved in doing a one-off, then get in touch with us. We may be able to work something out.

I hope you do find a cheaper way so you can get them on the market. When you get them to market are you going to offer a rear tire carrier/bumper? I don't remember if Iceland did or not.

We don't have one designed, but we have a lot of thoughts kicking around for them. Honestly, though, there are other new products that have priority. In other words, I don't think you'll see a rear bumper within the next 6 months or anything.

Understandable, any other new products for the Zj besides bumpers?

We're hoping to adapt our XJ rock sliders (very close to ready for production) and have some sliders for the WJ's and ZJ's pretty soon as well. In the next few months, anyway.

Wire wheeled the rc plate again and painted it with chassis saver. Won't have to worry about rust again.

Also as I was writing my last post a friend who moved to Florida, is up visiting. Took a pic of me parked waiting for my Gf to get out of work. I was Dumbfounded for a moment because I didn't know she was in NY.
