3 posts in. Could that be a record?

What front bumper is on the Rubicon? Is that a home built one?

No it's a body armor.

How was the RR a pain to install, it advertises no drilling?

Well for one you have to pretty much dismantle most of the passenger side of the Jeep. Its a little easier if you don't have a rubicon. You do have to cut a little out of the fender and it seemed like nothing in my kit fit. It took some muscling in to get it to come together.

You will end up removing the left hand curved cowl piece (where the Rugged Ridge snorkel is sitting) and cutting a small piece out of the left front quarter panel top edge (where the snorkel "body" is "stuffed" between the quarter panel and the interior body metal work). Note area where the rubber gasket edging is visible between top of the quarter panel and at the bottom of the exposed snorkel on my previous pics.

Photograph taken just prior to getting the dremel cutting wheel out to remove the piece of the quarter panel.
