New front bumper coming soon.

Anyone want to buy an XRC? Solid bumper in great condition.

We'll have to wait and see!

My only hint is that it is very different.

It should be arriving tomorrow. It might be next weekend before it gets installed though.

So much for seeing the new bumper this weekend (it's the new Barnes4wd stubby by the way).

I went to install it and the steel lip at the back does not fit in between the sway bar mounts on the top of my frame and therefore the bumper could not be mounted. I could have cut down the lip but I don't think I would have been happy with the result so, for now, the XRC is going back on (not the winch for now).

However, my Antirock is now ordered from the G-Man. I opted for the aluminum cause it looks like shiny tits.

Once it comes in and I get a free weekend I will install everything. Looking forward to it!

old bumper is back on. I went ahead and reinstalled the winch and KCs. I figured it would piss me off without it.

Lookin forward to seeing this!

I thought the Barnes was supposed to work with the stock sway bar? Is it the same barnes bumper I just installed?

It says it is. But the lip is a good half inch too long...

Looks slick with the antirock! The aluminum will make it that much better.
