how about narrowing the center piece and dropping the hole enough to not have to notch the tube? LIke this, i am the worst phot editor on JF btw

Gerald should like the lower manufacturing cost of not notching the tube,

I had a devil of a time justifying the sunk-cost of getting rid of a less-than-year-old nice front bumper. Until now...

The weight savings should have been enough, but the design has put the icing on the cake. Very impressive.

Guess this'll be the first Savvy order delivered to the new house next month.

Ya'll should try designing your own stuff from scratch one of these days.

If I lower the hole in the pin box, I have to make the hoop higher, making the hoop higher puts most of the offroad lights above the hood line which does not appeal to me. The height of the THIMBLE is what the hoop is designed around and there's just enough room to easily secure the thimble with gloves on and still easily miss the fairlead.

Also, having the bottom of the tube open lets one fish the wires for the lights through the holes in the backside of the tube under the tabs, down through the tube legs and through the holes in the base plates and out under the bumper where you can cleanly get them under the grill and up into the engine compartment.

Finally, I'm not finished with the design. There are more considerations in play other than what's immediately evident.

I don't believe you.

::SELLING HALF OF MY JEEP::

Rear Currie 4" coils - 190 shipped. (They've been sitting in the back of my Jeep for mock up but won't work out for me.)

Hornblasters Shocker S4 horn set with some extras $210 shipped. (It is not OBA, just an accessory for OBA)

"LCOG" isn't cheap and it certainly isn't easy. If you think so, you are doing it wrong. If you aren't willing to put in the effort, don't label your build "LCOG". You are just a cheap ******bag.

Officially drooling ....

Waiting on a (mostly) complete Currie suspension, sliders, and eventually, under-armor. I've got to get the bottom half taken care of first.

Better question is when packages like that are showing up for me. Two weeks since order placed.

May be a while, she slaps me if I even look at it with a wrench in my hand.

Ofcourse, I may have her softened up by the time Savvy gets to the JK stuff.
