Back Bumper is back from powder coaters! Bought it used from a member! It came out great!! Poison Spyder was a real disappointment !!! I tried for over a week to order parts for this bumper and nobody there knows how to price out the parts !!! I would never buy a new one from them knowing that replacement parts were so difficult to obtain! So on it goes with the parts that came with it!! Pics tomorrow of install.

And Its On!! Since poison spyder never got back to me on parts i had to improvise. I gotta tell you, the nutsert tool saved the day. There were no u-clips for the bolts that had to be installed but the tool came thru!

Nah, I didn't leave for good, just focusing on other things....I've got a very nice '01 Dodge P/U that's been getting attention lately and I've also been working at migrating files from my work desktop to a new work laptop, talk about pita....

A better question would be...have you had much of a chance of driving the new JK? When I saw it, you could have put it back on the showroom floor....and I certainly understand why....I do have to say, when I look at this one....it's deja vous all over again...

dvdsjk that bumper looks great/new and is a plus for your Jeep.

Have you had a chance to use the backup lights yet and if so how well do they light things up while backing up?

krutj/Joel itís nice to see you back again too. I hate it when I get to be good friends with members here and then all of a sudden they disappear. Your #1 priority is the dog you rescued and the JK tech forum, remember that.

They need to make a hard top deck cover. If it were mine, I'd leave it open. Looks great regardless!
