Can the classic hoop be installed leaning toward grill or away from it?

Hi @ChuckF,
Yes the Maximus-3 JL Classic hoop can be flipped to lean away from the grille.
Personally we think it looks better leaned back, but beauty is in the eye of the Jeep holder.

Keep in mind Maximus-3 makes two other JL hoops that lean forward...the JL Stinger Bar and the JL SLP hoop.

Does this require drilling through the hard top?

All our bumper hoops are 100% bolt-on for the JL Rubicon steel bumper.
If you are referring to our Maximus-3 roof rack system, yes that requires drilling eight holes in the hardtop.

Whoops, yes I meant the roof rack system. I was looking at both threads and posted in the wrong one. Very good looking products. I’m keeping you guys on my radar. Any chance you have a picture or instructions on how much cutting into the bumper is required for the D ring attachment?

Not too much cutting, just two little pockets and we provide reference points. Take a look at the attached install guide. Thanks!

Nice, @Maximus-3 what advice do you give customers who are having a hard time choosing between the Classic and the SLP Hoop?? Both look good, I hope to have two round lights under the hoop one day.

It just comes down to personal preference. The Classic hoop is larger so it accommodates lights between the hoop. The SLP will only accommodate round lights when the hoop is orientated in the slant-back position.

Thanks - does the classic hoop with reinforcement brackets need any modifications to fit if I have the warn zeon 10s and the warn winch plate?

None that we are aware of! Our products are designed to work with as many other aftermarket products as possible.

The install is pretty straight forward, it takes about an hour.
There is one step that some people find tricky...removing the factory u-clips. So we put together some helpful videos. >>> https://www.dropbox.com/sh/35jha08a5ok9yfk/AAAMRVcwZUEWCrCuW9xCbXlsa?dl=0
Thanks for the video, the hole near the edge toward the back of the Jeep I got out with a lot of effort and then I found this video. Will try it on the hole toward the front of the bumper... Dang U-bolts are the hardest part of the install!

All finished! Took longer than anticipated due to the U-clip removal but finally got it. Also, for anyone with a larger winch like the warn zeon 10s, it is extremely tight to get the reinforcement brackets installed. i finally went out and bought ratcheting box end wrenches.

But I think worth it! The instructions say I could use the factory bolts if I wanted to but they are not long enough for the holes with the reinforcement bracket. Factory bolts would have looked better, but small detail! Thanks maximus 3 - given the quality of my first purchase from you, I'll likely be ordering more.
