    Probably less noticeable if you painted the area black.

    Also prep for the Poison Spyder Rear Bumper Brave. A nice thing about these is that you can still get to your body mounts through the whole They left you in the angle brace. Very smart and helpful.

    Long couple of days prepping the Jeep for towing safely with my Warn Rock Crawler Bumper.

    1) Prepped and painted Poison Spider Bumper Braces.
    2) Got a chain safety bar welded to the bumper. Cleaned up, primed and re-painted the area.
    3) Dropped the gas skid plate 3-4 inches so we could reach in to start the four bolts through the crossmember into the Warn.
    4) Thought I got all four started well. Turns out I only got three. :( May have to go back, but no time now.
    5) Mounted the PS braces with everything loose. Bolted them all up to spec.
    6) 8” drop hitch came in. Attached 2” ball to 250ft/lb with an awfully big 3/4” ratchet and 1 1/2” socket.

    7) Did some work to help out my welding buddy!
    8) Loaded up for the hunting trip tomorrow. She sits pretty level and looks great!
    9) Much more was done.

    Wish I had a lot of pics but didn’t have time. Here’s the end product.

    Why does your rear bumper sit so much lower from the tub? Kuku!

    I kill you guys! Stop staring at my butt crack! It’s no bigger than yours @Starrs and you have one coming @bobthetj03. You’ll thank me later. Many bonuses to the butt crack reveal.
