Excellent build quality, fit and finish. I was amazed how easily it installed with all the correct parts included. Amazing what you get for the price. Took a bit to clean and prep for paint than some other things I've had but it's expected and nothing worthy of degrading the overall product. Thanks again JCR for another perfect product!.
Bought this with the Vanguard bumper. Very exact fitting, tight tolerances. Once installed, very smooth operation. I'm running 35's and it's like I have a 28 inch on it feels so light. I powder coated after I received it and it looks awesome. A great investment if you are taking your spare with you.
I absolutely love the look and function of this. Great design, also got the 3rd brake light and hi lift mount which I also highly recommend doing. These guys know what there doing when it comes to designing and manufacturing jeep parts!.
There aren't many one-handed operating bumpers out on the market which is why I chose this one after asking around. Assembling the bearing, JCR LED brake light, and heim joint were easy. My only problem is after countless hours adjusting the heim length, my spare rattles &40;more like rumbles&41; and squeaks over every little bump in the road. So my solution was to put weather stripping in the V of the isolator which so far seems to be working, only time will tell. .
Nice unique styling. After about six months, the notches are showing a small amount of rust. Pay special attention to those areas if powder coating this yourself.
