Go ahead and post up some pics of your rig. I'm sure I'm going to love everything about it.

So here it is, I just installed it, like 30 minutes ago. I will try to take some better pics tomorrow or the day after. As for the install, extremely easy. Putting the bumper together took about 30 minutes and so did the install. I am really happy with the way it came out and I just want to say thanks to Matson and Doug over at MetalCloak for all the help.

I think it looks good. WAY better than the original version with the goofy hoops on the front.

Steve, Thank You! We appreciate the time you've taken to give us feedback and to post these cool pics! Your rig looks ALMOST complete... something is just not quite right about that rocker...

I agree. That's a sharp bumper. But, I don't know about those little shackle mounts on top, they seem like there just isn't enough meat there.

Ron Paul Was Right

Been on the rails and Big Muddy.
I've crossed the trails rocky and rutted.
Been down the road a million miles,
But I still got a long way to go.

Excellent point. Those are T6 Aircraft Grade Aluminum and are engineered with one idea in mind: recovery. Besides the shear beefiness to fit 1" shackles, they are bolted directly to the frame creating truly integrated strength. I will be posting some pics soon showing the abuse these recovery points can take.

We love feedback like this so please keep the questions and points coming. Thanks!!!

EDIT: Jeepineer, our MetalCloak engineer, reminded me that the shackles mounts fit a 3/4" shackle, not the 1" I mentioned above. Sorry about the error...
