Shortened the ends of my bumper today, pulled into a parking lot with a raised entrance and as my Jeep flexed over the hump my tire rubbed against the little rubber end.. so I decided to cut a section off the end of the pipe and reinstall the rubber end..

The victims


After

Got some more lights today.. a pair of Hella Rallye 1000s for the bumper and a pair of Comet 550s for the rear of my rack as reverse light.. Bought them while I am visiting my family in Peru and got them for a hell of a deal.. Got all 4 lights for $250! and they all work!!

Thats a good idea on the bumper. Looks like it was made like that! did you paint the exposed metal? I would just to prevent rust.

I think you should mount either of the two lights on your bullbar. Under the top of it, almost like the are hanging.

Well got back in the states this morning from visiting my family in peru.. My Riddler diff cover was waiting for me at my Grandparents house as well as my new Northridge 4x4 sticker





Had enough time to mount the Rallye 1000s on my bumper, they're not hooked up yet. I have to wait for my KC switch to get here before I can hook them up. But what do you think? I'm glad I settled for the 1000s instead of getting the 4000s. I think the 1000s fit better in the hoop.

Nice! Hey man, would you measure how tall that sits when sitting flat on a bench. Maybe sit a level across it to measure how far it will extrude from the face of the mounting surface for me? My JCR steering kit puts my track bar super close to my diff cover. When I'm cranked all the way to the right, it almost touches the stock cover. I also like how the fill plug is slightly slanted upwards from what I can tell.

Thanks. Yeah I'll do that for you, hopefully by the end of the day I will have the measurements.. Yeah you could tell right the fill plug is a little slanted, I like that too. Right now its in my garage drying from its primer coats and will be getting its PR4 Flame Red coats today.
