ABSOLUTELY!... Thanks for posting that up.saw this on "another" site...wonder if woody is gonna' give the jk owners here the same opportunity to road test his prototype which purportedly will go for less than $300.00 once in production?
I don't have it finished yet, but there will be. The bumper is designed to have the swaybar motor, rotated up. It's the only bumper that I know of that lets you do this. Not that I've checked this on very many bumpers.Is there a skid or protection for the sway bar disco? I have been looking for a baick steel bumper. This looks promising.
I'm not sure. If you choose to not cut the cross-member off and it attached only to the cross-member, then I don't see why it wouldn't work.Can one continue to use the Skidrow front skid which only protects the cross member?
Have you tried the google pay he's using? Looks to be just as secure and even a doof like me can figure it out. Plus, if you're looknig for points, use a CC with point built in. Personally, I like to use my REI card for stuff like this because it gets me more outdoor stuff it I want :bounce::grinpimp:That looks interesting. Though this reminded me I need to go order a stabilizer bracket, though you don't take paypal...hmmm
Kilby's does that tooI don't have it finished yet, but there will be. The bumper is designed to have the swaybar motor, rotated up. It's the only bumper that I know of that lets you do this. Not that I've checked this on very many bumpers.

I'll have to do some digging on this one.
My personal opinion, is that the cross member is there for protection only. However this bumper will bolt to the same supports and since they are shorter, there should be more support by adding the bumper. Cutting it off is an option though. The bumper will work without cutting it off.Why would one want to cut off the cross member...looks to me like it contributes to the structural integrity of the JK?
Not upon initial release, but soon after I'll have a fog light solution. The fogs will either be removable (mounted under the bumper in an enclosure), or will swing back and out of the way. So this will be an option.I would also consider the proto-type bumper with the Fog light provisions that will be an option. I reaaly want to retain the stock fogs...
I'm with ya bro. I've used my fog lights, once in the last year and a half.i say screw the factory fogs but give me winch mount and some beefy d-ring shackles!
