    So that is probably one of the cooler things to see - The Apillar light mounts look like you can choose any multiples or positions for the Light bar and pods - Not a big pod / light bar person but that is a neat piece of engineering -

    I like the idea of the drawer in the bumper after the spare was moved.

    Like the picatinny rail in the light bar. I can mount my laser designator to it. :)

    I will never understand the desire to add a bunch of holes to your fender so all the mud you run through will end up on the back of your mirror. It sort of defeats the entire purpose of a fender.

    I like the side nerf but it doesn't look like it sticks out far enough to be a step. I need a side step for my wife.

    Love the steps on the bumper, not sure why this is the first design with them. Lights would have been nice. The drawer could be cool. depends on how well it functions, particularly after a couple years of dirt. What happened to the bumper.design with the rear winch?

    Yeah, I'm thinking wheel to a rear swing tire carrier then the drawer or something.... Do they make a spare tire water tank?

    The Overland Expedition guys or one of the other SEMA guys have done it - they moved the spare to a swing arm in the back. That's what I am going to do...

    Why do all of these aftermarket parts look like they were made in some guy's garage with his buddy that welds? You can always, always tell a "factory" part from these bolt-ons... and I don't mean that as a compliment. They need to start hiring some industrial designers, or better yet, get with the guys at Mopar and invest in some factory support.

    I like the light bar mounts at the top of the front window. I'm seeing a lot of bumper- and skid plate-mounted lightbars. I recognize the economy of such, but I can't help but think of the replacement cost if a rock hits it. 2 individual lights at the bumper seem to make more sense.

    My favorite part of this one is the wrap, and the way that it compliments/hides the awkward rear door angle.
