    Bear with me as this is my first build thread. And I'm still learning on how to modify the thread for easy navigation. I bought this 2017 OR MT after my '08 was totaled in an accident.

    Rear differential breather. I routed my hose to the driver side compartment in the bed but did not run it inside the cubby. Third pic is how I routed it through the frame then up to the cubby.

    Tuffy Flip-Up License Plate Holder. This bumper/license plate combination won't work with a winch. The angle of the lic plate is maxed out in the shot below. If you decide to get this lic plate holder, purchase three additional locknuts for the bolts that attach the holder to the bumper. The nuts that came for the license plate and the hinges are already locknuts.

    I like your choice in front bumper. I was thinking of getting the same one for my silver 17 Off Road. Did you install the bumper yourself? If, any suggestions, comments? How do you like it? How is Victory 4x4 service?

    Thanks! I had The Truck Shop in San Diego install it for ~$300. I really like the look of it but I've had some issues with the bumper and at the moment, I don't want to comment further because I'm still working on the resolution with Victory 4x4's customer service. It may be a while before I have an update as I'm in the middle of moving.
