That never occured to me to do but that's a pretty damn good idea! I like!

Also good on you for adopting.

Thanks.

I'm trying to be as light weight in the front as possible. The easiest solution to a stubby bumper was this. I want to run the 2" BB with metalcloaks. With my heavy a** winch I need to spare a many pounds as possible. If necessary I will thrown on a body lift.

Ended up painting the bumper also. The weather forecast was showing low temperatures so I decided to throw on some primer and bed-liner.

Bed-liner really worked well hiding imperfections on my bumpers last build so I'm sticking with it this time around.

Could get one of the aluminum stubbies from Savvy Offroad. IIRC it's lighter than the stock steel bumper, and much sexier lol. I have their rear bumper on my rig and love it. Made of some beefy 6061 aluminum. Either way, I know the feeling. My setup actually sits slightly lower in the rear so with the added weight of my new winch it sits perfectly level

If I had some more coin I would get savvy for sure. I've seen some scrap 6061 laying around the shop. If it's not used soon I will fab up a nice rectangle stubby But considering I need to make some aluminum rails for my trailer it's not gonna happen anytime soon.

That sounds like the way to go to me. Cheap, functional, and should look pretty good.

Duplicolor in a spray can. If prepped correctly the stuff is awesome.

Ya found some on ebay. I still like the coopers but I like the tread pattern of the kuhmos more. A little more research to do but I like what I see so far. I also though about retreads for a minute. I like the idea of retreads environmentally. I try to do my part whenever possible, but I would always be worried about possible failure in hairy situations.

Ordered Metalcloak overlines today, no flare.

I still hadn't decided on what tires I wanted, this way I can paint the fenders and have more time to decide. Also need to paint the Moabs.
