Sick set up dude! I just installed that same front bumper over xmas break. I love it. No winch yet, but I will eventually get one. YOu have the perfect set up though. Warn with synthetic line, 2x rigid duallys on top of a PSC bumper. Does not get much better than that!

Ya it's at stock height, I get asked all the time if it's lifted chopping the fenders made a huge improvement on the look and I love it, can't wait to get it lifted and put some 35s on it.

Thanks for all the complements!!!

Thanks, ya she has good taste, she likes all the same as I do so it works out well. The tires are stock for now 35s will go on this spring along with the RK 2.5" max travel pro kit, havin a hard time pickin out tires I like the goodyears with Kevlar, but I guess are impossible to get also the the nitto trail grappler and the pitbull rockers radials (still lookin at reviews of how these are on the road I do a lot of driving for work so I need a good wearing tire) any other suggestions?

Check out the Toyo Open Country MT/Rs. They are heavy but from what I hear a great tire. Honestly, if I were you, I would search and search and search for the MTR's w K. Thats what I did and I was able to find a supplier with 4 of them in stock in the 35x12.5x17 size. Hopefully, maybe by spring time they will be off backorder, but who knows.

Why not the KM2s as well? They def should be tossed out there. Also a great tire. I have had both the KM2s and the MTRs w K. The MTRS are by far superior but the KM2s are certainly a great tire as well. My only complaint about them was the fact that they run small, and on wet pavement were terrible. Other than that I loved em. Good luck!

Off track here, but if I were you, I would try to find some orange reflective tape and stick it behind the spyder emblem. That would look badass! Thats what I did with mine, but I used silver. Just me basically taking out loud on how I would like you to do things. No mind me! Hahaha.

Ya ill have to look into the toyos, on the KM2s i am with you i am not a fan that they run small i hate the fact that i would be spending the money on a 35 and really getting a tire closer to a 33, but if the price is right it is definitely a possibility. I do hope the availability of the MTRs is better in a few months cause that would most likely be the route i would go.

As for the reflective tape i have it in my tool box now but i have to re paint the bumpers cause i didnt prep them right the first time and are already chipping (nub!) I plan on using some spray on bedliner this time around.

Thanks for the suggestions and info!

i might be able to have them in a heated garage to paint them would that help? I like the idea of powder coating but it just cost so much and the ease of touch up paint with the bedliner is very convenient

What didnt you do right the first time? With mine (I have the same one as you do). I first cleaned mine with mineral spirits, then dried. Then 3 coats of self etching primer, after the final coat waited a couple hours, then hit it with 3 coats of rustoleum truck bed coating. Not sure if that is the proper way of doing it. I didnt sand between coats, probably should have. Not to sure as to how much of a better finish you get when you sand in between coats but...it seems to be holding up pretty well so far. Also, I am not to sure if it just rustoleum or all truck bed coatings but, it seems to chip pretty easily....may also be a result of not applying it correctly...who knows

i also cleaned mine good, but the step that i believe i (and maybe you did also if yours is chipping) was that i didnt sand the metal before the first coat of paint i used the self etching primer and rustoleum gloss black and it chipped as soon as i put it together, I also let it dry for about 15hrs before i installed, but ill see how it turns out the next time around. I used duplicolor bedliner on my wheel wells and it is holding up greatly, i just cleaned with soap and water sanded with 120 grit and washed clean let dry and sprayed. There are no chips from what i have seen even with all the rocks hitting it from the tires
