The stainless steel recovery points need to be tumbled, polished or painted. When you weld stainless they can rust around the weld area. Polishing them brings the cromium back to the surface so they don't rust any longer and won't need paint.

In the future, we will tumble them for everyone who buys them. We are still looking for a shop that can tumble them cost effectively.

I may polish them if I can figure out how with what I have here at the house. If not, than I'll probably sand them to get the slight rust and grime off than clear coat them.

Merry Christmas!
You can install the Bumper befor ethe light tabs make it to you. They just use the upper two bumper bolts to mount under.

I'm looking forward to seeing a painted bumper. I sent one out to be powder coated but I won't see it till after the new year.

Yeah, but than I won't have anywhere to put my stock fogs. I don't want to drill any extra holes just for something that's temporary. Maybe if I used a fairlead mount hole? Hmm...

If that was directed at me (The O.P), I take that as a compliment that I have outstanding taste in bumpers...

Like I said, I have nothing but great things to say about my Hanson Bumper... The quality of the bumper was just awesome, and I always thought it was tops in appearance as well... To be fair I got mine before they moved production out of the main Hanson facility in Salinas, CA to Fresno, CA (when they became more "Mass Produced", and I heard the quality maybe wasn't up to the same standard). I went down and talked to Wayne Hanson and was impressed with the man and his business.

So if your looking for a great "full weight" bumper, I will recommend Hanson all day... I wanted my Jeep to become more Savvy, and the Hanson while looks great is quite heavy (75lbs ish). I don't need a Deer Plow, I don't run into trees, so I wanted a great performing, lightweight and great looking bumper... thus the Savvy!

That's what's great about this Jeep thing... everyone's rig is a reflection of each of our personalities (and pocket books), and my personality has changed from wanting big, beefy and heavy with light, functional and super strong.

Have a good Christmas everyone

I have to agree 100 percent with you Wade. Wayne has always impressed me with his unique designs and outstanding quality.

If I wasn't capable of building my own bumpers, he would be my first choice for that style of gear.

I guess that means I should go find that Matte Clear Coat then, huh? (my local Mom and Pop Ace HW didn't have it) I'm not planning to polish, or paint (at this point) any of the bumper... I might as well hit the whole thing I guess with the clear coat, but don't want it glossy...

I went ahead and just sanded one tab slightly and it looks pretty good. I'll most likely do that than clear coat them. Gave it a nice brushed finish.

Nice! You only need to do a little more work and you won't have to coat them at all. A small buffer and polising compound will make those shine like chrome.

Do you think this adapter will work with your bumper in order to install a Warn 8274?
