LSR incline Bumper showed up. Put in the KOR 3/4" spacers, Pro Comp 55 lights and painted it.











Got to fill that lip with a winch soon...

I also have to install the 4 Hella front and 2 rear lights... relays, switches...

wiring is time consuming..

One, for now, the Cobra 800. I have another that is still in the box. Ill add it if I feel it will get used. At this time, I don't think the front outlets will get used much.

12V outlets for the cigarette lighter plugs

I put the front spacers between the factory rubber isolator and the body on the top of the spring. The same for the rear.

The 800 has 2 110v outputs, so I just plugged each Rubbermaid extension. The Cobra has only one USB, but the Rubermaid has one USB cable that splits it to the two. So all I needed was one single to double USB splitter.

Hope that makes sense.

Nice build. I really like the looks of your Jeep. Just wondering do the front and rear bumpers stick out on the side?

are you going to do anything about the holes left from when you took off the cladding or put it back on?

I am planning on making a strip to cover it. Ill make it with either black RTV or 3m Superfast Urethane. Basically just squirt some on and take a flat edge and scrape the excess, creating a "rubber" flush trim, almost like a door guard, but it wont stick out.

I put black tape there and liked the stripe. All the trim I could find that fits that has chrome in it.

Is it just me or are the lights in the bumper worthless? I tried aiming mine, but they seem pretty useless.

which ones did u get? i got the procomp spots with the clear glass, they are almost worthless but ive got them aimed to the sides a bit and use them on dark roads to widen my field of view, mine arent perfectly centered in the foglight hole in the bumper, i think theyd work better if they were, i may drill a new hole sometime and see how it works.

Does that rack interfere with a sunroof?

I love the overall look of this thing.

I got the same 55's, but fluted for "fog". I was just thinking the same about making new holes...

No interference at all, just a tremendous amount of wind noise when open. I never used it much anyway.
