I added a link to the JK-forum website i participate in... looks nice.

Maybe if enough of them buy some you can hook a college kid up for referring!

Any chance i can get some more pics, side profile, underside, top? I am really interested in these bumpers.

Is it possible to take fogs and move them outside the frame rails so you could drop the winch down with the same design and look of the stubby? I know the bumper would have to be lengthened some to make this happen. I just prefer the overall shape of the current stubby more.

Will the rear incorporate a tire carrier? I sure hope so!

Yeah, by the end of the day.

That would kinda ruin the lines of the bumper because it would have to be flat for 5" or so total beyond the frame rails on each side. We tried to fit the lights too... but there is just not enough room to keep the proportions correct.

Yep, expect pictures sometime next week.

Excuse some of the paint and the hoop that is just set on top... just prototype and picture stuff :)

The bottom plate bolts onto the stock cross member as well. You can see the holes in a few of the pictures.

this might help what i ws trying to say... something like this...
http://www.project-jk.com/wp-gallery...2_itemId=25242


The only other thing i would change in either bumper is to make the recovery tab smaller, to me it makes them looked a little cluttered the way it is.

Yep I understand on both accounts. Our tabs are kind of a signature for us, and we were looking to make the a short stubby that makes the front end look narrower.
