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.

Be very careful with the wife mod. Uninstallation can be extremely expensive. Wife mods have been known to take the Jeep and all other mods during the uninstall process. Also, make sure you service your wife mod properly as often as humanly possible. Wife mods not properly serviced may malfunction or uninstall themselves at any time.

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.

Now if I can only convince Gerald and Blaine to make a skid for the Gen-right 31gal LJ tank ... (insert snowball's chance in he11 smiley )

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.
