    The wait is over! James (07TEQ) is ten min from getting a look at his new body armor. I had these shots last nite but wanted to wait until he had the truck. IPOR trailered his FJ to him and he'll see it in a few min.

    You should direct all tech question's to Lance or Cam at IPOR. I was there yesterday working on my 55 when the bumpers and sliders arrived so had to stick around for the pic's. It took three guys to lift and mount that freaking front bumper!!

    HELL YEAH!!! Too bad I am deployed to Okinawa (Yes I am scaveging for some non U.S. parts while here). I can't wait to see this stuff in person! looks like a little skateboard grip tape on the rails will make a nice finishing touch.

    Take a few deep breaths James. It looks like everything came out really nice! NOW SELL THAT DAMN H*^P CHEROKEE!

    Delivered to boot. At least you don't have to make the 4 hour round trip.

    They are designed for FUNCTION, not total appearance. No other bumper out there extends from the body like this, because these are intended to keep the body off of obsticles.

    I like the concept. I've been contemplating a similar type of body protection, exetending from my Expeditione One bumper to a modified stock slider, but do not have a rear bumper yet. What size/sched pipe is that?

    Wow, that's a big ass front bumper. Probably a bit too big for my taste/need. But it does look hefty, well made, and I am sure it will stand up to just about anything!

    I really dig the rear bumper with the rub rails to the sliders. I have also been considering this configuration.

    Good job to IPOR!

    I really like the rear bumper with the swing away tire holder. Any prices for it yet? Or is this a one time only thing?

    Interesting that the first two replies were negative but the pictures dont do it justice because it is all one color on the bumper.

    The bumper by itself only weighs about 90 lbs

    but just like any other bumper add the winch with steel cable and you can add another 75 lbs.

    The bumper is actually in most dimensions smaller than the ARB and is only wider for more front protection and to also make the bumber lines work with the body lines of the truck
