I just crushed my factory plastic bumper and was comparing the KOR to the Custom 4x4 Fab to the Profab. I have a 2002 WJ Overland so I guess the charcol canister is located on the drivers rear so I wonder if that is going to be an issue.
Also need new rock sliders as the Factory Overlands did the job but died in the process along with the factory Tie rod.
I have one and love it. I didn't get the D-ring mounts. I have a d-ring receiver that I install when wheeling, and I know i would have been running into those tabs when loading stuff in and out of the Jeep. I figured I would save myself the cussing fits and just stick to the d-ring.
Tank Tucks are a popular thing on the WJ, but I like mine how it is. I was originally on board, and was planning on a tank tuck. However, the factory spare tire well is such a great location to store tools, my compressor, bottle jacks, a set of grease clothes, spare fluids, etc. The best part is that I just crisscross a tie down across the top of the cover between the tie down areas, and it keeps the lid tight and everything in place when wheeling.
That said, I wanted to paint my bumper to match but didn't want the skid to stand out. So I painted it with flat black to blend with my tank. I like how it turned out, and I like the tank skid. It took a full saturday for me to install it, mark it up, remove it and trim it. Then I had it painted and re-installed it.
Installed the bumper, marked it for trimming to match the line of my fender flares:
I tacked on two tabs per side to secure my mud flaps for street driving, and I have quick release pins holding them on:
Complete...skid is painted flat black and blends in with the gas tank and undercarriage. I also painted the exhaust tip and pipe black with high temp paint:
I screwed my plate to the swing arm, to the left of the tire and right of the pivot. It was visible from behind, but kind of obscured from the right. I never had any issues with it from law enforcement. With that you never know, depends on where you are and what time it is if they want to stop you and use that for an excuse to look further.
But that's California. Not sure where you are. Asia?
Yup Asia, I heard we need to at least have lights for the license plates..still thinking where to put it, seems like common options are to attach it to the spare tire center...but was thinking of buying a hard cover for the spare so....
