Thanks a lot guys! It's made by a guy here in Minnesota. He had an ad on the MN jeep forum about custom bumpers so I shot him an email. Pricing was incredibly reasonable. I really couldn't be more happy. The bumper is 44" wide and 1/4" steel. Needless to say, it's BURLY... If anyone is interested PM me and I could probably forward you his contact info. I would imagine he could ship one to someone interested. Price was $105 unfinished and without shipping. He could really charge more for this nice of a bumper.

That's a great little compressor, especially for the price. Are you going to mount it or keep it portable?

I was planning on mounting it but I'm not so sure. I would prefer it to be hard mounted. The only available spot under my hood is on the tray under my brake master cylinder. Even with it adjusted just right it would sit about 1/4 or 1/2" away from touching the master cylinder. I guess I'm concerned about heat. Brake fluid is highly flammable. I tried the compressor today. It works great but runs real hot. I guess if anybody has any input it would be greatly appreciated.

Made a purchase today...Ordered a 2nd Gen Superwinch LP 8500 and a ProMark raised winch plate. Was an expensive day but I hope it's worth it!
