It's a nice bumper, but super over-engineered. There are a LOT of fasteners holding things together. I don't think it's a problem (hope not anyway), but it does make it harder and more time-consuming to assemble. The lack of instructions is a hindrance too. Even just a hardware listing to know what's supposed to go where would help. Again, it's something that is OK I think, since it should be a one-time hassle.I've been looking at the dissent, what's your opinion after install?
Exactly my thoughts. My 80 is a piece of 2x2, with a 1.5" round diagonal brace. This one is like a half-sheet of 3/16" aluminum with a lot going on. It is fancy though.So yeah, what is up with that thingy? That seems like a damned lot of plates and bolts in all sorts of places to do what could have been done with a couple pieces of tube.
I'm not trying to say they aren't useful...just that I don't want to carry one around.We used HiLift jacks three times on trails this past week and were glad to have them. Yes, there were precautions taken, but there would have been much longer trail times without them.
Who else has received a "hi-lift uppercut?"
