    Hey man I hate to be that guy but bull bars like those are often times damage multipliers in an accident. I've seen it happen.

    true story,
    I have had it happen.. I hit a rock at the bottom of the bar, and it pushed the bar up and took out my grill, hood and fender all from a minor bump on a rock.. never again..

    :word: If I'd had one of those when I tapped my skidplate on a rock I would've been driving home in a F__D.

    Got my rear shocks replaced. Would've been nice had the shocks been compressed a little more before banding, but eventually got them in and torqued down.

    Compressed? I never compressed the rear to put them on.

    With the floor jack on the pumpkin I used a bottle jack to articulate the rear to put them in easily.

    Mine were banded at a pretty long state. I normally bolt up the tops, cut the band, then let them do the work and guide them - these had different ideas. Even after jacking the frame up one was too long. Physics won in the long run though and it finally agreed to be installed.
