    I don't know if you're still shopping for a winch, but just got an email from 4WheelParts that Smittybilt XRC Gen3's are 10% off (again). The 12k is $675 (down from $750). If you have Rakuten, another 3.5% off (~$23 off), and there's usually coupon codes you can lump on top, though I haven't looked for any & the Honey browser plugin didn't have any that worked.

    Overland bumper and Xeon winch installed. Finally! Now I'm looking for a battery isolator. Thinking about a Blue Sea HD series switch or maybe the Warn power interrupt kit.

    Still looking yes, thank you. I missed out on the x20 gen 2 for 540 shipped. I went to bed on it and next morning sold out. I'm taking a trip to vegas next week might just wait until I get back but this deal you posted is pretty decent.

    Bumper is at powder coater now. Just left there. Drilled holes for a 3rd LP9. Kinda messed up one of the holes a bit - it’s not perfectly aligned like the rest.

    Anyone know if there’s any forgiveness with the LP9s & the size hole on the bumper? If so & they can move around a bit before tightening them down, I should be good.

    Now that I have the bumper it's not something that is perfect precision. All the bolt and bracket attachment points are wide enough to allow for play. But how bad is the hole that you drilled out of alignment? I would make the hole oblong on the bumper to allow you to align the light. The light mounting bracket will conceal the hole.

    That's a relief, thanks. It's not out of alignment that bad at all. Of the three holes (two small holes with a big one in the middle) - the big one in the middle is maybe a little more than 1/16" to one side? Not much, but I didn't know how precise it had to be.

    Yea man just open up the hole a bit more in the direction you need. But now that it's at powder coating I wouldn't want to go drilling into it unless you have to. Install the light, and you probably won't even notice it.

    One regret I have about the C4 bumper is getting the bars. Now I have to loosen the bumper to remove my grille so i can color match it. Oh well.

    It's that tight huh? I read somewhere in this thread that you might be able to squeak the grill by the bull bars - to put painters tape on the bars. No? Here's the quote that I saved:
    "Might be able to reinstall grill last (after bumper) by taking off under-mirror pieces, connecting them to grill, then installing all 3 as one unit. (Put painter’s tape on parts of grill that rub bull bar)"

    Yea I managed to get it in. But I forced that shit and may have broken a tab. I don't really care because I'll be painting the grille surround so scuffing the grille is not an issue. But removing the under headlight panels then reinstalling as one sounds like it should work because thay was the area giving me trouble. Come time to remove again I will try that.

    Very nice. Can't want to see it. What lights do you have going in it?

    Everything in the picture from their website. I fell in love with the look. The lights did cost twice as much as the bumper though.

    Yea but I have to be honest I was always in the boat of ‘these Amazon lights are just as good why would I pay that much’

    But now that I have owned both there’s a definite quality difference and a light output difference. The BDs with a lower rated output throw way more light than the cheapies. Is it worth the super premium? I don’t know but they are definitely better

    I sure hope they are. But I honestly can’t think of a situation were I would ever turn on all 9 lights at the same time. But damn it sure look cool! I bought the locking bolts also, would hate to have spend all that money on the lights and have some A-Hole steal them.

    I think I went overkill on the lights but like I said before it sure looks pretty and I love the look. I’m sure I will realize I don’t need all them and end up selling some at some point.

    Lol. I have a feeling I'll be in the same boat. S8 bar, SS3 Max fogs, & 3 LP9s. LP9s haven't arrived yet. Picking up the bumper from powder coat tomorrow.

    Will do. The 3 LP9s looked too freakin amazing on C4's website. It's their fault.

    Hey if it’s not too personal what was the cost to powder coat the bumper? The shop is having mine done and they never told me a price just want to know what to expect
