Spyder logo looks pretty cool. I'll be looking to get that bumper hopefully in the summer. I have a charcoal jeep though, so I'm not sure what colour I'd fill the logo with.

Come up with whatever theme color you want, and start having suspension parts anodized that color, swap any decals out to match in color, etc. Make it your own!

Looking good man! I like the small extra touches that you are giving it.

I am thinking about doing the a/c vent rings but can't decide if I want to do them in red or something less drastic.

I noticed in your profile and from pics of your rig (Ohio plates), that you are from Ohio. So, I thought I would ask a quick question. Have you had any trouble with police with the stubby front bumpers? I want to get one, but I am afraid because I do not want to get ticketed every other day. Any advice? Thanks!

From what I recall, Ohio does not have any laws governing bumper width, only height. None on flares either, so no trouble for me. I'll search for the handy 4*4 site that I have seen posted up in here before that lists all states major laws (maybe its in FAQ, can't recall)

Hey great idea with the reflective tape! Looks great and so simple! I am planning on the brawler lite bumper as well and been thinking of the best sway to do this. I just might steal this idea!

I found a link from this forum that leads to liftlaws.com, they list all laws by state and for Ohio bumpers it says something like - bumpers must be 4.5" tall and as wide as the track width. Now, I posted a question about track width, but so far no response. I'm thinking that the track width is either the measurement to the outside of the tires or the inside of the tires. The problem is, I don't know which. I have a feeling, however, this may be a law that is not strictly enforced unless the driver does something to draw attention. Thanks for the response, I appreciate your help.

Hey Mike not to jack your tread, but CC, how do you like those rims? They look great, I was thinking about a set of 17X9 with 37" Toyo MT's. Do I have to worry about any rust on those rims?

Thanks a million!

Well to be honest it's only my 4th day with them, as you said they look amazing and I'm betting they can take some abuse (not that I've out them through anything yet) but I'll keep ya posted! Ya sorry Mike! But you said to keep you "posted" on my acquisition!

Experienced my first bout of "hood flutter" this morning...I was convinced that y'all were crazy when I read about this regular problem, as it never happened to me after installing the PSC bumper. My rear end puckered up pretty good on the freeway this morning I'll be ordering the hood wranglers.

Also, I ordered the aluminum fender liners from Metalcloak on Saturday - here it is Tuesday and still no word from them...no confirmation of shipment, no tracking number, and no response to PMs...anyone know if they're a little slow on getting the stuff sent out, or am I being impatient or unreasonable?

Hood wranglers? Daystar replacements? Apparently don't stretch and keep it down in a head wind? On my journey back to Texas it was a constant fluttering, let me know if they make a difference!
