LOD Signature Shorty front bumper

Vent and Door decals
Looks good. Where did you get that LOD bumper from? Steel or Aluminum? I checked on XT and a few other sites and couldn't find that one. Might have been a little early for them to be released, though as it was over the summer. I'm also curious about the sway bar motor coverage, approach angles, and price point vs. a couple of the other options I was looking into. Any info or feedback appreciated. I'm looking to do something similar (stubby with a winch and a guard), tight approach angle with options for the OEM LED Fogs (or modding an option for the LED fogs). the tighter the approach angle, the better as I'm going to be stock until I need new tires.

I got the bumper from North Ridge 4x4, it is steel. The sway bar motor coverage area is the same as stock since they reuse the same mounting location but the crossmember/crash bar is replaced with a beefier LOD part that also serve as the lower mount for the skid plate. FYI the skid plate is a separate purchase from the bumper. Approach angle suffers a little bit since it sticks out a little further compared to the stock plastic but I think that was out of necessity to get a sunken winch and factory fogs in a stubby. I ordered the plastic bumpers with led so the factory fogs attached directly to the bumper no adapters required (an adaptor for another version of the fogs was included).

Overall for day one I am happy with the bumper.

I bought the lift back on black friday. Soo it has been waiting to be put on. Just ordered rear bumper/tire carrier LoD Destroyer. Need to decide real soon about rock rails and if someone comes out with belly skids for a 2.0L then I'll be picking those up. Someday the Gobi rack will show up and I can install the lights I have picked up in the last few months.

Nice build! How much did the lift actually gain you in height compared to stock?

I didn't measure it before and I did wheels/tires at the same time.... So I don't know. I didn't even think to measure it before hand. I am zero help here. Sorry.

I met up with the owner of WPNGEAR today and bought the Visor Mount I think this is where my HAM radio and maybe sPOD will live plus it is good storage space in a cab that lacks good storage.

He was also nice enough to get me setup and drill a few extra holes to make his Rollbar Mount work perfect for my Viair dual 444c w/ 2.5gal tank. I just have to get it wired and finish plumbing it.

I also installed the Tuffy Security Deck Enclosure can kinda see it in the pic above.

Does your tires rub at full flex? I was told you would need to get the 3.5MC if running 37s to not rub
