Default New bumper for my 100 series

Finally found time this weekend to also install my new BIOR rear bumper.

I went with Bump it Off-Road (BIOR) and really like the quality and price of this bumper. I was able to get all the bells and whistles..

With the built in trailer receiver, I had to cut a space in the cross member for the receiver. Pretty easy, never have used a cutter wheel before.



Also I re-installed the hook, to help protect my tail pipe. Might go to Midas and have them bend the tail pipe up just a touch.

Looks super nice Chris! Did he locate the safety pin for the swingout next to the latch? It's hard to see in the pictures, but I don't see it on the spindle end. If so, that's a much better design then mine (pin and latch are at opposite ends of the swingout).

Thanks you guys, I am really happy with it.

Yep, Matt they are right behind the latch now.

Come on guys - if you're gonna quote it, get it right! It's "ultimate set of tools", and it's Spicoli's dad the television repair man that owns said tools.
