Rancho Rear Bumper/Tire Carrier, painted headlight bezels!

We installed a new Rancho rear bumper today and wifey did her first wrenchin' on her baby!! We also painted the headlight bezels black, very subtle change there but it looks good!! Remember, black is the new chrome!!

It is pretty solid but there a few alignment issues, I had to drill a few holes out bigger to get everything to line up, mainly on the pin that holds it closed. But overall it is a good deal for the price, $400.

I just noticed yesterday that the swing is starting to sag a little now when I open it, it's starting to hit the bottom plate on the latch side when I close it. It's only noticeable if I close it slowly, but I'm sure it wil get worse. Overall I'm still happy with it, I will probably upgrade to something else eventually.

I think I am gonna get the Finish Line West rear corner ouriggers and make them work to get some real protection. I saw the post with the stock rear corners on the end of that bumper, it does look good but it just won't offer any protection!
