Don't give me any guff about the door and window lining up or the sloppiness. I'm way out of my depth here HAHA

I like what you did but I’d like it if it cut up on the corners instead of flat across. Here’s a quick phone edit of what I mean.

Yeah this makes sense I think the camo is hiding a front skid plate

I got a hot dollar bill to bet there's a giant air dam on there for fuel economy. Easily removed and probably not on an off-road version, but I'd bet that $1 that it'll be big, and it'll be plastic.

Yeah. Better be less than 5 bolts to take off, because it's coming off before I leave the dealer lot

you are getting there just try one with the blacked out part covering the large rectangle. just a little higher …...


jk's have a big plastic skid plate on the front usually ripped off the first wheeling trip you take, no bolts, just push pins. I left one off a customers jeep when we upgraded his steering linkage and he asked what happen to it. I said you will loose it first time you go wheeling. he said I have a bag of push pins at home to put it back on … it won't be the first time I've had to put it back on. no joke.

sorry didn't see this one.. it has been stated here and I think they are right the bottom of the bumper is the bottom of the large rectangle but then tapers up at the ends.

remember this thing needs good approach angles !!! that stuff is all fluff in the front. it should be almost flush with the headlights. just out alittle bit I like how paint "crunched" the nose in a little. makes the world of difference. then by blacking it out WOW. I can see it know. looking good.

Here is proof that this thing has tons of foam. Take a close look and you can plainly see the thick grey foam padding that the camo is glued to.

yes, and I think that bar is the lower part of a tube bumper similar to the bronco r (desert runner). then it tapers back and up on the ends, but they made the camo squared off to make it look like and ugly growth on the front.

I thought i read somewhere that this mule may be testing suspension components for a Tremor package f-150.
It says “BRONCO” in the camo in about 900 places. If you disregard that little fact I guess it could also be a mule testing suspension for a new Wonder bread truck too.

If that is a tube for a tube bumper, it would be a very small diameter tube and would probably look pretty spindly compared to how robust this thing is suppose to be.
