    Yes (a year I think). But if it fails due to "lift or offroading" they wont cover it.

    This. Nancy did say if I have any troubles that she would work with me... What that means..I don't know.. The guy that I bought my tundra brakes from said he has never broken one. He wheels his rig pretty hard. He also said he broke 3 advanced auto cvs.

    I don't know maybe should have waited and got the lotus but didn't want to drop the coin on them due to the crawl box.

    Did you have to notch the other end of the tube at all? Or did u notch just the side that connects to the center light hoop? I'm gonna be doing the same in a week or so

    All the tubes come raw from relentless. For the center i cut so it would lay vertical then cut again for the desired angle. For the hoops I notched the tubes connecting to the center bar and also shaved the inner tubes closes to the body for it to tilt in a bit. A lot of shaving and test fitting.. No fast way about it.

    Yeah it looks like its gonna take a wile to grind those down, I don't have a tube notch. I have the relentless tubes in the bed of my truck, just gotta get started...

    Did you use a notching tool or the grinding "notching" method?

    Yeah the relentless DIY. I've always liked the hoops on bumpers, so mine looks incomplete without the hoops IMO.

    So jealous... Haha

    I can honestly say that if I have the money I will buy an Elite and add the hoops just because it looks so much better than mine!

    Thanks Tanner.! I like the way these hoops are super close to the body. Really tight though to weld!

    Yea that's the problem I'm having. Mine was super close as well to weld, and even more so to clean up the welds with the flap disk after. I think once I weld my sliders on it'll tie everything in. My main purpose for the hoopers was to protect that from corner from the tight trees we have up here. The fenders are kinda flimsy without the liner and flares now. As I'm sure you've noticed haha.

    I think I'll keep them. Looks pretty mean coming down the highway to :)

    Hey ponethousand, your bumper looks awsesome!

    Hey, have you received your crawl box yet? If you haven't installed it, I would seriously consider swapping the Marlin double row bearing out for an MRC. Check out the link in my build thread for more details but, it looks like the thrust loading on the Marlin bearing is making it wear quickly and break apart. It's great for radial load, but horrible with thrust load. The MRC, on the other hand, is a Conrad style bearing and can handle both loads without issue. Again, just follow the link for pics/details on the whole issue...
