    Looks like a sweet trip, good food too! I still haven't gone offroad yet this year, everything was locked down (whatever good locking down the trails does) until a couple weeks ago and I ended up working the last two Saturdays.

    I’ve only been on a couple mild trails this spring. It’s been surprisingly hard to get out.

    Mod: Max Gear Rear Bumper Install
    Date: 13 December 2019
    Mileage: 71,263

    I am still so excited about getting this bumper! Worth every penny. Thanks for all your hard work @Maxterra.

    I drove up to Dave's shop and had him install the bumper.

    Then I couldn't wait to kit it out when I got back home.

    And since I was going that far, I though I might as well put a Gobi ladder on too.

    Now that I had the rear bumper it was time finish Phase 1 of my suspension upgrades. I put on adjustable shackles and 2-inch extended travel Bilstein 5100's.

    Then I had to go test her out on Bably Lion's Back.

    Nice! That bumper with all the goodies is probably my next mod unless a locked M226 drops in my lap beforehand.

    *How long from the time you ordered until you had it?

    I waited almost 6mo for Shrockworks..

    Looks like a great time! I need to get a rear bumper as well.... maybe I'll hit the lottery I'm not playing soon!

    It took about 6 months from the time I ordered it to when I picked it up. Dave makes them to order, and I think they are in demand. Worth the wait though, best rear bumper on the market.

    Additional info: I have the exact same bumper on order. Placed order early April and it should be here early August per my most recent correspondence with Dave last week.

    Yep, I think I've looked close at everything available for the rear and his is the best all around. I wish he'd make those front bumpers although I hear extensive R&D and materials went into it so the price point at first would be double the rest out there.. Oh well, I need no more items on the wish list.

    for front bumpers I have my eye on dezert runner

    And Hardcore Off-road

    Of course any front bumper would require at the very least telling the wife it was happening. So probably a no go unless we start off-roading regularly.

    For the rear which is more inconspicuous I have my eye on Bucksnort (which seems fairly cost effective from recent activity) and then the Maxgear. At the end of the day of course I don’t need any of it since I’m primarily on the pavement, and there may be better places to spend the money if available. Though my experiences of getting rear ended in both my previous (Nissan) vehicles makes me think it’s worth having, or switching to at the point I get rear ended in the X.

    I'm going to go with a Hardcore offroad rear tire carrier bumper . Cory at Hardcore said we can probably get a winch mounted back under there since I will have no need to put the tire back under and I don't plan on doing any towing . Option 2 would be a mini Keg-a-rater !!

    If you're talking about his tube front bumper on his rig, everyone wants one, and not a single person would buy it, because it would be so much coin. That took him 2 weeks to make. Every tube is bent by hand.... I know, because I'm the one who does it for all the rear bumpers.... unless he runs out before I can get back up there to help him.

    Mod: 2-inch OEM length Radflo's with 600# Eibach springs
    Date: 16 October 2020
    Mileage: 77,482

    Due to a major life-changing event (we are moving to Ft. Collins, CO in the spring) I pulled the trigger on 2-inch OEM length Radflo's with 600# Eibach springs from Nisstec. Now I'll be able to drive my bucket list of Moab trails before we leave town.

    New Radflo's next to Bilstein 5100's

    Installed. Now time to drive!

    That's big news! I think you're nuts for leaving Moab, but then again to me it's an offroad getaway, probably different if you live there year-round.

    Yeah man. I'm not really ready to leave, but the wife got a promotion and her new office is in Ft. Collins. It will be nice to back in the land of beer and coffee again though. LOL
