Northridge4x4 has them at the best price and free shipping, they've even got a discount code "discount" going for 5% off. I'm liking the fender flares, definitely need a stubby to go with them.
Your rig is looking good, looking forward to follow your progress.
Thanks man, I'll take a look at the or-fab.

I'm thinking about having my rear wheel wells line-xed, rather than reinstalling the rear inner liners...mainly because I have no idea how to reinstall them, and I really don't like the red showing. I'll have the tub done at the same time, and the front bumper is also on the list of the next to-dos.

Managed to blow several of my speakers last weekend when I took the top off and turned it up pretty loud for a party we went to at sibs weekend Ohio University Gotta replace those now too

Really liking that idea, that'd be my preference also.

HAve you had the opportunity to put your hands on this? I think there might be two downfalls...no option for underskid protection, and I wonder how stout the bumper itself is...know what I mean?

But for $150...hell

I have one sitting in my shopping cart on your website now...how many of those light mounts come standard, if any...I guess my question is, do I need to add the light bracket kit to my order?

Mike

Edit: Would you consider fabricating some sort of bull bar, mini stinger, at an extra cost obviously?

The way to do it, would be to not use the factory tow hooks and attach to the top of the bumper (weld a bracket on) and run a support bar to the frame.

I don't do custom work and if I did, it would be a $300 bull bar on a $150 bumper.

Point made

It's official...I ordered the Poison Spyder BFH front bumper with brawler bar, shackle tabs added. $411 shipped from Northridge 4X4 (free shipping on orders over $100 and 5% off with coupon code "discount")



Edit: Is there a benefit to powder coating, vs. line-xing the front bumper? I'm having Line-X do my grill and inside the rear wheel wells, figure they can do the PS bumper at the same time...

Edit: THANK YOU to fergyjk for making me aware of the 5% discount code! Saved me about $28 I'll buy you a couple beers if you're ever in the Columbus area

Ok, scratch the BFH bumper...I changed my order

I just learned why David at Northridge4x4 is so highly regarded...He called me on my cell phone to double check that I understood that a few inches had to be cut off the frame rails to properly install the BFH front bumper...I had no idea. Would Quadratec or many other large sites have done this? Hell no!

So the jerk talked me into spending more money...I ordered the Poison Spyder brawler front bumper with brawler bar, already powder coated, with shackle tabs. I won't tell you how much I paid so as not to make anybody mad that might be looking, but let's just say I got a hell of a deal.

I told him, and I will tell y'all the same - I will bring every bit of business his way that I can from here forward. He's got my stamp of approval

To Dave, He's on it every time!
When I went on-line and ordered the OME Extra heavy coils for the back of my Jeep my phone was ringing before I had a chance to log off of the Northridge site.
He was calling to tell me that the extra heavy springs were way to stiff for most applications and that he wanted to make sure that I knew what I was getting.
After his consultation I went with the heavy rather that extra heavy springs and couldn't be happier.
