Love the rear bumper! How much did that set you back?

If you don't mind, can you tell me which lights you went with and how you wired them? I am waiting on my bumpers from Billy and I also bought the rear bumper with holes for lights. I'm not sure on which lights to buy yet or how I should run the wiring. Looks good and thanks!

Looks great! Do you have a build thread? What tire size/lift are you running.

Fronts are PIAA 510 ATP, just connect them to stock fog light wiring.

I connected them to the towing harness, you can tap them into the regular reverse lights as well. You will probably need to change your IG1 fuse in the dash behind the coin box to a 15a fuse because these lights blew the 10a fuse on mine

Looks good brotha.

My rear had saved me from rogue old people in the parking lots TWICE.

Damn, looks great! How long did it take to get your bumper from the date you ordered til the day it arrived? I'm looking at buying a plate bumper in the next couple days but ETA is going to play a large part.

^Upsizing a fuse and not upsizing the wiring isn't a great idea in my opinion. Tap into the reverse lights and run that to a relay, then get your power somewhere else for the lights so they have their own circuit and in-line fuse. Just my $0.02.

Those bumpers look great by the way!

Mine were about 5 weeks. I'd check with Billy when you are ready to order.

I agree. I may look into this in the future. Just a quick fix for now. They aren't on all the time, only in reverse. If it was something pulling a lot more power than the circuit was designed for, I definitely would not have gone this route.

Very Nice!
Could you take some more pics from different angles?
Is there enough foom on the back bumper to stand? (at least half of your foot). When loading my canoes I need to get up there to tie them down.

I wonder if he makes the front with light guard hoops too?
How much does the front weigh?

I've been looking at the ARB for full frontal deer protection, but it weighs a bit, and looks like it sticks out pretty far.
