I like it a lot just not all the steel they added in the design. I wish they had a weight on the rig. Got the email and send back response.

Headlights are on. It was an ok ride. They were very organized but I dont think they were expecting that many jeeps to show up. Around 500 with about 5-10% being other 4x4s including to 2 H1s and 1500-1800 people. We were in the back of the group but I had a good time and beautiful sites along the Bayou Teche. It was a different jeeping experience and I was fortunate enough to win a door prize too.

It isn't bolted on but here is the new rear bumper. Very clean and low profile. It also weight ~1/3 of the previous one and matches the sliders pretty well. I will get better pictures once it is on permanently.

Yeah. I was told it was discontinued and this is one of the last three... But I doubt it.

Nice. Seems like they've discontinued a lot of their Jeep parts.

Got it mounted up night before last. I like how close it hugs the body. I might make a little piece of metal that comes off the body mounts to cover the body lift if it starts to bother me but right now, I am just enjoying being able to see all the cars behind me. I have the main part of a highrock tub mounted tire carrier that I will look into mounting in the soon future....

Short list:
Paint hood
Paint hardtop
Wiring for rear window wiper
inner fenders
mount seats
rear tire carrier
