sounds like a really cool setup. next time you have them exposed, can you take some pix of tables in position?

i like the extra bars underneith the bumpers. kinda like a ground effects kit, but solid, lol. if you can, please post a side view so we can see side steps and the forward part of the rear bumper. ive thought about doing what you had done with the space between the back bumper and rear wheel well, but your the first ive seen to have it executed. would love to see some more pix of the setup if you didnt mind

oh, and absolutely love the second photo with the orange cliffs!

and unrelated to your post.... but are those tires good year duratracks? if so, your thoughts about them?

Regarding the Duratracs, I wouldn't recommend them, they are too soft even though they are E rated at 80 psi. There is still significant sidewall bulge.

bummer. i really like the looks of them. thought the hybrid style of an at tire in the center and mud lugs on the outter was a good idea. appreciate the feedback.

and thanks for posting the additional pix! system is really well thought out. looks like those guys do really nice work.

I was going to arrange a meet and greet last fall but my father got sick and it didn't happen. I'm in if it is organized.

Re: New bumper option - CBI

If you guys want to get more to show for a meet & greet
maybe start a new thread with a title that reflects it. Those
not looking for bumpers might pass by this thread.
