Thanks for great Q's. UltimateCC is right on. The 4" are considered equivalent to stock and measure about 6" from the hood at the widest point whereas the 6" measures about 8" at the same spot.

As far as under the hood, everything goes back into place, you don't have to replace your factory equipment. As UltimateCC pointed out, you do have to bend a couple brackets, and depending on the year of your rig, you may have to drill a hole or two into the aluminum inner fenders, but that's no big deal.

I will send you a PM with all full quote.

The license plate fits on there without the bracket, too... It's just a PITA to get on and off to go offroad. Once Doug makes his bracket, it'll be a lot better. For those of you that need something in the meantime though, all you need to do is drill out the holes on the license plate a little bit, and it'll fit perfectly on the cosmetic bolts. It's tilted back a lot and hard to read, but it's better than nothing.

Dendrophobe...

LOL! You've stumbled across something that we were keeping on the low down... yes those lower angle holes on the Frame-Built bumper base are for our future quick release bumper mounting system.

You named it after me?

I can't wait to see it! I ordered the lights I intend to go in that spot, but they're backordered... I'll hopefully have them in two weeks or so. Of course, I'll get some pics to you as soon as I have it painted up and installed.

Just curious, but there don't happen to be any plans in the making for an XJ version of the bumper setup, would there?

Difficult to have a "Frame-Built Bumper" on an XJ, isn't it?

Well, I meant one that looked similar, not how it mounts to the uni-body which is completely different from that of a YJ,TJ,etc.
