Right on, Chris, I'm glad you're happy... this bumper was definitely worth the wait, everything I hoped for, I'm glad you are psyched as well.

Coolest thing about these compared to ARB (IMNSHO) is the separation of the lights, and the separate winch cradle- the winch bolts to a big plate that bolts to the frame in about 10 places... then the bumper bolts to the plate. So when winching, the bumper is mostly cosmetic, with the pull tied more to the frame. I think I have a picture of that on my phone, I'll look... but I did take 2 install pictures, so here:

Installs go best, when you dress like a Transformer.

So when are the rear bumpers going on?

You guys are making those 100's look pretty nice.

Having a family is making you soft Martin. A few years ago, complimenting a 100 would have been blasphemy for you.
