I got one from him a while ago.
I don't remember the adhesive part being there.
Whether it's there or not, it installed very nicely and you should have no problems.

Well there's a "foam" (for lack of a better word) that's taped on the back that acts as a cushion between the bumper cover and the metal of the guard. It's not very thick but I'm sure it serves a purpose.

What size rivets did you use on the bottom? Musclez had bolts for the top holes.

So you just have the metal directly against the bumper? Does it scratch at all? Does debris get caught in it?

Maybe I just don't remember them being there. Haven't had any problems.
I wash my Jeep often.

Finally uploaded the photos of my lifted Arctic KK. Lifted it a week and a half ago. Enjoy.

That and they look like they'll seriously rub on your bumper. Why does the front look so much lower??

4 inch springs in the rear take a while to settle in

Just never seen 4" on a KK... The 4" on the LJ doesn't look that uneven.

Tires still look like they'll have massive rub.
