Hey guys,

This is just a first look, but I now have the WAM bumper on and ready to go. I'll post more pics of it out in the wild soon

Install would have been straight forward. somehow my brackets had misaligned holes so I had to drill 4 new holes as only 2 lined up, they offered new brackets but I didnt want to wait.

I like the look, but the fitment around the fenders is a little funky. I think I trimmed a bit much off the fender and the bumper is a bit wider than it should be.

Tire carrier is skookum as ****
Tapered roller bearings on a huge shaft
Swings out with ease, it does make some clunks on bumps though, ill be adding a plastic spacer to reduce that

Overall I'm pretty happy:p
What do you guys think?

Looks a lot cleaner than what is shown on the website. I'm a fan of the Hi-Lift location.

Dang that looks very functional! Nice work.
Did you use grade 8 bolts?

Yes, they supplied 6 grade eights for their mounting brackets

The bumper mounts to the vehicle by two intermediate brackets that are bolted to the trailer hitch bolts. Definitly should be enough for towing or any straight forces, but I'm a little worried about a sideways recovery, but we just have to wait and see :p
