How much was the rear? And how long did you wait to get it?

Here's the link to the website.

http://www.tacticalarmorgroup.com/TAGStore/TAGStore/tabid/71/List/1/CategoryID/311/Level/a/Default.aspx

as you can see there prices are really good, but be WARNED, you will be lied to numerous times, and will need to do a LOT of work to make the front fit properly. The rear fitment wasn't too bad. If you don't mind some extra work for fitment and strengthening then you can get a sweat deal. The rear without any upgrades is $405 the only thing I added to that cost was the reciever hitch for another $65. Since I got the front and rear bumper they gave me another 10% off which put the cost of the bumper at about $420. The front was about $470 after the discount. I had them ship it to a business so I got a pretty good deal on shipping. In regards to wait, I was told they would be delivered to my front door within 5-6 weeks max. They were delivered just over 14 weeks.

No, but I didn't get the winch bumper. I got the reciever bumper. They are the same price. You just have to figure out which one you want.

The 17th is still on for me. We will have a JK, TJ, and XJ joining us. We should have a group of about 6-7 Jeeps which is a great size. Looks like we might get a little snow that day, which will make it even more fun.

PhantomWJ if you are seriously interested in buying the TAG bumpers then you should read through my review. There was an old thread that had people asking about them so I just did my review on the old thread. My first post in on page 4. My review of the front bumper with pics is on page 6 and my review for the rear bumper with pics is on page 7. My guess is that your experience with the bumpers, company, timeline, and customer service will all be very similar to mine. If you don't mind all of the issues you will have to deal with, then the price itself almost makes up for it. If I had to do it all over again I would have gone with the protofab bumpers. They were almost $400 more to get shipped to my house, but I wouldn't have had $40 out of pocket for hardware, $30 for paint, $200 in steel and labor for repairs, and all the headache. For $100 more total I could have had bolt on bumpers without all the pain. Here's the link:

I have had a few WJ guys show interest but nobody has given a definate answer. Hopefully we can get a few WJ's out there as well. This is a little off topic but I got a couple more things done today. I got my windshield washer fluid reservoir removed since it was gonna get ripped off if I ddin't. I installed a reservoir from a 96 ZJ and was able to just swap the pumps, plugs, hosses, and wiring over to the ZJ bottle. Wasn't too difficult of a job. I also got my 242HD tcase and rear ds prepped for install. Here's some pics.

That's too bad. Maybe things will still work out. We should have a couple inches of fresh snow on the ground Saturday morning which will make for a fun run.

Looks like we are gonna have to cancel this wheelin trip on Saturday. This incoming storm is turning into a beast. The snow level is gonna be at about 6500 ft on Friday and Gold Mtn. at the lowest is a 7000 and goes up to 8200ft. The weather reports I'm reading are showing close to a foot of snow at those higher elevations with another foot coming Saturday day. 2 feet of snow is a little too extreme for some of the Jeeps going. 2 feet of snow on fire roads is fun but on a medium level offroad trail is just dangerous. Too many rigs would be constantly getting stuck or damaged. This would keep us on the trail WAY longer which means more snow for us to deal with. I'm REALLY sorry guys, but we are just gonna have to wait until the snow melts and try it again. I have ran many of the Big Bear trails in deep snow, but I was on 35's, long arms, and locked front and rear and I STILL struggled.
