New Rear Bumper?

If it's about Power Wagons, all generations, this is where it'll go. This is the original PWR Forum Power Wagon Technical Discussion Section. And this includes everything that doesn’t fit in any one of the other categories related to the truck goes here!

BD S2’s are bomb dude. Very good quality, small package, and an affordable Sport and high output Pro option. Good light quality on the eyes too.
They might be bomb but the color warmth won't match the rest of my lights and I already own lights...

Not to sound like a jerk, but if your lights don’t match BD’s color, you have the wrong lights :)

The Work/Scene style is exactly what I recommend for backup lights. Those have a really nice spread.

The more I've thought about it, the more I don't want to actually move my hitch up. I do and I don't. Moving it, means changing all the dynamics I already figured out with my hitch setup. And especially the dynamics of how the WD works.
would the WD not work the same with a drop hitch extension? same hitch height, same tongue weight?

i would be all for moving it to a high tuck position as my d-ring is pretty much full time, and i wont be towing anytime soon.

but its been mentioned that the hitch can take a direct hit off a ledge/drop, with no damage other then surface scratches.
no reason to move it then, as it will protect the paint on the bumper, and keep little Carrollas from getting too far underbelly.

I agree with bold adventure on the hitch, I at first was willing to move hitch but the more think about it probably not. Do not mind cutting the fenders with thurens the rear corners is where I seem to drag the most. Ready to see more details on construction. But loving it more than anything I have seen so far, short of custom.

Speaking of color... Anyone ever wrapped a bumper? If one did an aftermarket rear bumper, it would be nice to wrap the front in the same color.

It's not ready for production. I'll have the prototype installed by the end of next week and post more pictures for everyone. :cheers:

I'll ask, but I think they'll be ready sometime after PWIM. I know the feedback has been good on the bumper.

Here is something to hold you over till I get to Moab. Really, Thuren's photo's on IG might be better. Bad lighting here.
