  1. Sunrider for hardtop accessory is crazy noisy! Is this normal?

    Three fixes are needed. First agree that adjusting the latches as far forward as they go helps. Second if you have a lot of flapping noise at the top the sleeve that attaches with Velcro to the center bar is loose. I fixed mine by taking a piece of 3/4 in tubing and cutting it down the...
  2. HAVOC Steel Bender Front Bumper Installed

    Yes, was able to use the factory mount/retainer. For the rear bumper, the Havoc sensor mounts were great. It was just the front bumper where they all had alignment problems. Mostly a function of the sensor configuration itself. Rear sensors are different from front sensors.
  3. HAVOC Steel Bender Front Bumper Installed

    Word to the wise on the sensors...save your sensor attachment parts from your old bumper and re-use on the Havoc. They easily separate to come off the oem bumper. The Havoc ones come off by unscrewing. Despite looking more robust, I found that the Havoc sensor mounts with the foam and the...

    I think a lot of people do just the front bumper. It does come with a front license plate mount. I reused the plastic skid plate that came with my bronco. It fits just fine with this bumper. Maybe someday will switch to a metal plate

    See attached pic. Pod light mount is directly above antenna. I replaced the antenna with a 1/4-20 bolt with a waterproof washer. And made a short connecting strap out of crimp connectors and a piece of wire. Attached the other end of that strap to the mounting bolt for the pod light. That...

    Not silly. The mounts were the most important thing to me. I wanted them to be strong. These mount in two places where a lot of the others mount in three but the brackets were obviously much stronger on these. Two bolts on each brackets so 4 per side. And then it also mounts with nuts and bolts...

    I can't see any noticeable dip in the front since I put the heavier bumper on. It wasn't crazy heavy though. I was able to lift it by myself to install it. As far as the rails they sit down lower than the rocker. But are still not as low as some of the components under the vehicle. I think...

    Drilled and tapped for the four mounting bolts directly into the bumper. If you do that make sure you put some rust inhibitor paint or something in the areas where you expose the steel. You'll notice I also had to drill a hole to move the sensor that would have been covered up by the plate...

    There are definitely mounting points on the bar for either pod lights or a 10" light bar. I can't recall whether there are any other locations for pod lights. Quality feels really solid. Everything is welded, nothing held together with screws except for the plates on the bottom that cover...

  15. HAVOC Steel Bender Front Bumper Installed

    Thanks for responding. No need for the pictures. I ordered the front and rear bumpers this morning. Can't wait to put them on. Really appreciate your detailed writeup. Don't really feel like I need a winch and did not want to block any of the luxe sensors so this bumper was exactly what I needed.
