After my bumper end cap mod I will be taking a few poser pics to show off a bit. Meats come in on Monday, leveling kit and gussets on Tuesday.

About another couple of months of saving and I'll be ready to purchase the RR XHD Modular front bumper with the stubby end caps. Also, anyone know anything about the new Quadratec winch line? Seem to be pretty good for the money.
I would like to know about the Quadratec Winch line as well .

So I'm at work and my wife sends me a picture of my tires which just came in. Now I can't focus!

I can't wait to throw em on. I'll post pictures as soon as I do.

I've seen a forum member mount their winch in the center of their OEM bumper. Does anyone know of a winch plate that would allow this?

I bought the winch plate from Rough Country that replaces the front bumper. It can be had for $179, $249 with end caps that can hold the factory fog lights. You can get better pricing by going through vendors. I got a smoking deal from Rough Country's forum rep on a different forum.

You can add the D-ring mounts to it as well. I bought mine seperately, they are the MBRP ones.

DrHolliday I actually really like that front bumper. Actually exactly the look that I had in mind.

So here she is... Man this thing is sexy...


When my wife saw this she told me that I was full of S**T because I told her the new tires would only be slightly bigger lmao!


Glad I took 1.5 inches off the pinch seam. I would have been in deep doodoo if not.

And btw fellas... Still on stock suspension. These MetalCloaks are all that they are advertised. I'm positive that I can run 37's.

Also, I feel like I wasted money on the Synergy spare tire relocation bracket... The New spare fit just fine. I just need to invest in bumpstops so that it's better stabilized.

The insides of the wheel well? Nothing special there but I'll take pics tomorrow for ya. I'll PM them. I ended up not using the Professional Rivet Nut Installation Tool. Turns out you can use a 11/16 wrench and a 9/16 socket. You can actually go on their website and see the pictures for yourself on the "rivet nut installation guide" link under installation guides icon at the bottom of the homepage.

That damn rivet nut tool is 60 bucks and mandrel is 20 bucks and Mcmasters seems to be the only company that carries them. It's a bit more work using the wrench and ratchet, but a heck of a lot cheaper.

When the time comes for installation and you have questions (or need someone to calm you down) let me know and I'll help any way I can.

really just wanted to see if you had to do any trimming of the rear wheel well. glad to know i didn't need that tool. don't think it should be too hard as i helped a friend install poison spiders. from what ive read metal cloaks are easier. it helps having tech classes and friends that work in a body shop. btw how far are you from dagsboro delaware? i have a house down there.

Dagsboro DE is 2.5 hours away from my home. Let me know if you want to get together for a wheeling trip.

Installation was not hard. It was very annoying though. Alignment must be perfect for the rear exoskin to go on correctly.. No trimming required other than the fender support bracket at the front fenders... And even that's optional.

Oh yeah... And I was alone during my installation lol.

Looks good but that rear armor should wrap all the way around.
