I had the original LOD bumper and now the Xtreme duty bumper. By far, I would recommend spending the extra cash and get the Xtreme duty.

Thanks for the feed back on the LOD bumper. I will be getting the xtreme duty. About how long did the install take you and did you do it by yourself or did you have help?

It was not hard at all to take off. As far as what it will look like under it....dont know, my jeep was only 500 miles old when i took the overlay off. I dont remember if i had to take the head like rings off or not but i had them off to paint them anyway. Then after that there are four plastic nut and bolts that hold it on. Two of them are on top under the hood and two you have to go under the front of the jeep to get to. The nut and bolts look like these.

Just wanted to say HOORAY State Farm Insurance.....Just got an $80 dividend credit today. But really my question is I will be installing my mml and bl tomorrow. Which one should I do first. $80 also means new OME steering stabilizer.

Well I am 1.25" higher. I just got finished installing my BL and MML. It took me about 5 hrs total by myself. I did spend about 1 hr alone on the grill supports alone. I tried freezing them no luck. I tried wd40 them no luck. I ended up taking the whole headlight out and pulling them up with plyers. I am tired I will post more tomorrow.

It goes through all the gears fine and shifts into 4lo and 4hi fine. It was late and I was tired and I think that it might not be disengageing out of 4hi. The light is off but it just does not seem right. I dont know ..I will check again in the morning.

Have done 2 different bodylifts that where strictly pucks. 1" and 1.25". Didn't effect the TC either time. I might be lucky but I have heard from others as well, you might be over evaluating it since you changed something in the Jeep. I find I am like that with every mod. Goodluck and happy wheeling.

I have a couple of questions. I just ordered a few things from northridge in preparation for doing a lift and rear tire carrier down the road and was wondering if it would work with my stock step up for now. I ordered Rock Hard Rear Bumper/Tire-Carrier License Plate Relocation Bracket and a Lite PLATE LED License Plate Light/3rd Brake Light w/Plug. Will this work on my stock tire carrier....I guess i know it will but will it look stupid or will the wiring look stupid? Any one have this setup? The other question I have is I ordered a .75" space to level out my rake on my stock suspension. I should not have to use new shocks for this correct? and the alignment should not be off by much right? I will check it with http://www.4x4xplor.com/alignment.html

I have one of those spare mounted license plate brackets and like it. It may look a little silly on the stock spare becuase it will stick out a good 3 inches past the tire. I cut mine down and welded it so it didn't stick out so far, even with bigger wheels and tires it suck out. I think I cut about 2"+ off of it.

Before cutting it down with 31" MTR:


Here is a pic now:
