    Turned out really nice. Still planning on a hidden hitch, or under? Really interested in seeing what you're planning for the wrap arounds as well.

    Anyway, let me know when its for sell.

    I lost track thousands of dollars ago.
    I would prefer a hidden hitch behind the license plate.

    I think I would do the hidden hitch also, just for more clearance.

    Yeah It would look cleaner and more ground clearance. Are you offering recessed light mounts or it the bumper to small for lights?

    It looks awesome painted, Tim. If it were up to me, I'd go with a hidden hitch. Cleaner look and more ground clearance. I really wanna see what it looks like with the wrap around.

    yes recessed lights can be added for anyone who wants them,

    which ones were you thinking

    those would work perfect
    wrap around should be done in the next 2 weeks, just have to wait for my cnc guy to draw up the pieces and cut them out, i'll build it and add wrap arounds.

    couple weeks :D

    I'm heading out of town today and wont be around a computer till sunday so i'll get back to anyone on sunday! have a Good New Year!

    Hidden for clearance.

    For the wrap arounds, are you planning to do it plate, or tube? I've seen it done with tube on a plate bumper and it really didn't do it for me, but if you could find a way to do it with the plate, I think that'd turn out really nice.

    this is by far the best looking off road rear bumper ive seen for the first gens. i want it. unfortunately i dont have much to spend considering the fact that im only 18 and in college. when i get to the more expensive mods youll likely be hearing from me on this...

    One thing I completely forgot about and I really hate to ruin the lines on it, but hi-lift points would also be a nice feature. Thoughts? Maybe something on the wrap arounds would be good enough and under the license plate hopefully will be strong enough?

    Maybe you could some up with something like Hi-lifts tire lift, but instead of the hooks to the wheel, have it work for the shackle mount? I dont think a shackle would work too well though, as there's just too much slop at the bolt side for me to feel comfortable using it for lifting (pulling would be ok). Maybe just the square piece to go on the jack with a fork and a bolt hole above it or sticking out the front? Just an idea.

    (I know you have the receiver mount, but I just dont feel comfortable lifting both wheels at once. Too unstable for me.)

    I was thinking about putting some 4" lights, just like the front if they would fit.

    Have you seen these yet there small and bright and you don't have to worry about dunking them in water and blowing them out. 100% water proof!
