I think that depends on which bumper you get, the regular bumper and the stubby bumper let you mount fog lights near the stock location, as for the new Dagger series, you can't mount fog lights.

The "Hoop Leaned Fwd" is the same hoop as the center hoop of the Prerunner.

Here is mine. Pre Runner.

Shipped nicely!!


Unpackaged


Primer


Originally went with black semigloss but it was "too" black. It really made the other faded black parts on the jeep look even more faded.


I sanded the semigloss and tried black hammertone and like it a lot better.

Looks good Mine will be here tomorrow . I bought the same one, same color Jeep to. I might be taking the semi gloss back and getting the hammer tone . Also ordered Antirocks .might as well get them on first, how do you like them? Nobody says not to get em. See you left the sway bar cover on, might think about that to, did you cut them back?

I thought the hammertone was waaay better looking than the semi gloss, but it is more of a dark grey than black. It is pretty cool, in the direct sun it almost matches the body color (khaki) and in the garage looks like a nice black. Like I mentioned, the semi gloss black was just kinda too shiny. It really made the bumper stand out as "new and shiny", but in doing so, made the rest of the front look a little old and faded. Depends what you are going for I guess.

I installed the anti rock at the same time too, came the same day as the bumper. I left the cover on because it was kinda just ugly underneath without it. The frame was off color/rusty where the stock sway bar mounted and along with the body lift, it just didn't look very good without the cover. Had to push down pretty good to get it under the bumper. Only used the 2 front screws to re mount it, left the rear screws out and that helped to get it into a position to tuck under the new bumper. Also had to notch out two 1" squares where the winch bolts will go through. 5-10 min of extra work, no big deal and its looks better in my opinion.

Hardest part of the whole thing was getting the torsion bar through the plastic endcaps. Bumper went on like butta!!!

Yes, you put the hitch pin in behind the bumper, it will hit the crossmember, not the tank. It is a high profile bumper. You will most likely have to drill a new hole in the hitch to mount it, but that won't hurt anything. If you think that it is too weak, you are most likely hauling something that is too heavy for your Jeep anyways, here are some pics for ya. Hope this helps!

For you guys painting, check out "Satin black". It's in the middle between Semi Gloss and Flat. We use it for more of our product displayed on our website!

If you are worried about drilling a hole in your jeep, then maybe you shouldn't own a jeep.
