As for mounting, I think it was a PITA. Even with a right angle attachment, there wasn't enough room to install the braces to the outside "frame" near the pinch seam. I ended up heading over to the muffler shop for a couple stitch welds. That side is only for supporting standing on the sliders. No bolts on the pinch seams at all, they are up under the door sill (where I welded them).

The inner rails attached fine, but at the angle its hard to get the bolts started. And I cant stress enough, DO NOT OVERTIGHTEN! that sheet metal is very thin.

I will need to update this soon. I have in my garage awaiting install:
Aussie Locker for the 44A
IRO Transfer Case skid
JKS Quick Discos
Tom Woods front Double/Single DS

and sometime this year the delivery for my KOR roof rack and Rear Stealth Bumper with tire carrier.

Installed the KOR roof rack, Protofab rear stealth bumper and the Tom Woods driveshaft. Also picked up some 16x8 ProComp Series 152's.

Since I'm on a roll, I am really drooling on that LSR incline front bumper. maybe if I win the Viper winch....







Still need to install the Aussie and next will be an inverter and lights.

Used to be the wife's! Now that it wont park in the mall garage, she hates it. All her girlfriends love the "tires" though!

I think when I get a front bumper, it will help balance out the "straight edges".

i think it will too, i love the look of the rear and sides of the bumper, i like the high/straight sides for some reason. i actually didnt like it when i looked at it on protofab's website, but this has changed my opinion 100%.

mind if i ask how long it took to receive it after ordering? and where did you get it directly through protofab?
