The BAMF hitch has been available for some time now.
Thanks for the Heads up today. I went with the Rough Country initially because it was in stock, and I the Curt wasnt.. I didnt realize the RC requires Bumper removal. Glad to find the BAMF option.. and as you pointed out.. it does mount a little cleaner!
AND got home and logged in and it looks like my Bronco landed at the Dealer today!

I went with the Rough Country for the sole reason that it was available. I got it from Amazon the next day. Ordered 2 Curt but they kept getting pushed out deliveries. If bolts were shorter, I maybe could have got away without removing the bumper. Did not want to, but ended up being fairly easy.
Gotcha, and your done just posted for others info

Installed the Rough Country tailgate reinforcement panel. Used the opportunity to also install and run cabling for an external rear-facing camera for my Thinkware dash cam.

1.25" Ready Lift leveling kit.


View attachment 313036
You're the first I've heard with the Ready Lift. I'm liking that myself. It seems silly to pay $100 more over the other 1"ers but it seems quality and you get that extra 1/4". What is your impression and how was install? I'm looking at the Ready lift up front and a 1 to 1 1/2 in the rear as my Bronco only has about 1/2" 'rake'

I paid to have it done from a highly rated shop, Zeus Off-Road, near me and went with their recommendation for the tires, tailgate reinforcement, and leveling kit. I'm super happy with how everything turned out. It was worth the $370 labor for the lift kit install(+ $149 for IFS alignment) as I've never done one before. Tailgate installation labor was $120, which I thought was a fair price as well.

As you can see, after the leveling kit I now have equal gaps front and rear between the tires and the edge of the fender flare. Mine is a non-Sasquatch, FWIW.

Next up is tint and a stealth wrap. :)

I needed a fire extinguisher mounting bracket and also needed a way to hang some gear for upcoming fly fishing trip. Had a little scrap aluminum around so came up with these.

Nice work. I love a good custom bracket.

What size bolts go in to the roll bar holes?

Thanks,
I’m a little rusty on my Tig welding.
They were M8 x 1.25

can you explain what it is we are looking at? is it front and rear or something else???
Front and rear gap between the fender flare and top of the tire is now the same. Stock was over an inch lower in the front. This was what I used.

Found the door sill projectors a few pages back and thought they looked pretty good. Not bad for $60. Thanks @Bee Bop !

Also installed my Curt hitch. Just need to do the wiring, but I'm not in a rush for that.
