Did you order a single complete set or did you order a set of fronts and set of rears?

So, with any luch I will get them on April 19th. I was hoping to put them on this weekend or at least get everything marked and start cutting. I guess I'll have some free time on my hands

i'll be calling 4wd on monday to see what info they have, my order is processed and i was charged, so according to their policy, both of those mean it has shipped, and i live 45 mins from there main warehouse, a little bit more of a bummer

also the pending amount dropped the next morning

ok i just spent a good 20-25 minutes on hold with 4wd while they called Bushwacker, no answer on their end, but what i did find out is that alot of vendors will charge 4wd up front, which means that 4wd will charge you, so just because you have been charged, even though their policy states it, it does not mean your order has shipped, so probably looking at another 4 weeks for me if the original 6-8 weeks i was told holds up, which is ok because i've got another 5 weeks till this semester is over and i don't really have anytime right now to get them on anyway

Got mine installed. Still not happy with the way they fit the stock bumper.
Guess I'll have to build a bumper down the road.
Definately going to paint the bumpers and cladding to match once it warms up again.

Remove the bolt (10mm) on the fender well for the bumper and pull the bumper cover out a little. It'll move with ease... you can easily make a bracket to hold it out if you like it...

Tried that; even snipped the corner where the plastic tab holds it forward of that bolt.
Doesn't look right at all, and the inner fender is flapping in the breeze without moving it as well.
If I decide to Baja the bumper it might go a little better, but for now it is what it is.

It's a pity that they're TPO, if they were ABS I could put up a couple molds and form pieces that attached to the bumper cover.

If anyone has these and happens to live in mid-Michigan, let me know.

I'd love to get measurements and molds of some installed and see what I can come up with as a "completion cap" solution for stock bumpers.

I should be able to match the color and texture with ABS haircell, they just won't be as flexible.

On a part that small, though, it might not be a factor.

If you have your bumper cover on still you probably can't see it but there's a small hole (about 3/8") in the steel just in front of the wheel well. I drilled a hole in the wheel well liner and pulled the liner forward and then ran a zip-tie through both holes to keep it in place. It works great for securing it.

Of course, I pulled my bumper cover off completely. Unfortunately, I am still waiting on my flares to arrive (4WD tells me it will be about another week yet). I wish I had a paper template at least so I could start trimming the wheel wells now :-/

Is there any difference in what you get when you order fronts & rears seperate as opposed to a single complete set? As a vendor, you might know a little more about this...

Thanks,
