Will do. Hope to get it on before August 19th because I'm moving back to College Station and it'd take up cargo room if I had it in the tub or trailer. Not to mention I can't really work on my Jeep at the new apartment.

I thought the same thing about my rear bumper... However, it WILL get chewed up on the trail (not unlike sliders), and it is much easier to hit your marred up bumper with a rattle can, than to match a PC job.

I just ate up my bumper on the Rubicon, and it took me only a few minutes with a Scotch Brite pad and a rattle can to fix it. Had I gotten it PC'd like I wanted to...

If you want it to look like textured PC, the Rustoleum textured black is a perfect replacement for PC FWIW

Don't care about texture, I just hate paint. Not sure if I'll do the bed line spray like fenders and sliders or do a regular black spray.

That's OEM. Robert at Dirtworx was great at responding to my emails and said he'd make sure I get it in time to put it on before college.

If you haven't already done so, I would consider replacing your OEM tail lights with the 4" leds. My swing out carrier won't swing open bc it hits the taillight. This also prevents me from opening the swing out tailgate...not sure if the drop down will help this. I would do mine but I have the 1/4 steel smittybuilt corners and i do not want to cutt them until i take them off to paint. i could do the direct OEM replacement LEDs...but they are a little pricey on a college student budget.

I've considered getting the Maxxima Stop/Tail/Turn/Reverse or the Nemesis Industries. I like the idea of the Maxxima w/ the built in reverse lights, but 6" seems too big. I'd like to eventually. The picture shows it working with OEM tail lights though.

Maybe even these http://www.maxxima.com/products/prod...l#.UeD93I21FMA
