I love the painted bumper. I think it would have been too much had you left the sting grey grill in, but I think it looks awesome against the black grill. Beautiful rig.
that’s why I changed out to the black one! Thanks

How did you balance the tires?
I finally took it out yesterday for the first time on the tires and it seemed to drive ok a small I mean small vibration at 60? Don't know if I'm going to worry about trying to balance them or not!

Soon to be a Gladiator
For the suspension parts did you paint or powder coat? Also got to ask what was the price to get them done. Working with a shop now to start getting some quotes for my future build.

I painted the steering parts but the control arms came powder coated, the wheels I painted as well. I own my own bodyshop so I painted what ever I could, and have built many jeeps. This is our first Gladiator. Let me know if you need anything else.

Can you comment more on the Fox racing steering stabilizer?--Why this over the non-racing version? What do you typically have it set to for highways vs off-road and what are your feelings about it vs how things felt with the stock stabilizer? (I know a thousand questions...)

To be honest I just got the build done and on the road on Sunday and have only drove it a few miles. So I really don't have any opinion on it at all at this time. Sorry

In the past I have used Centramatic wheel balancers with pretty good success on daily driven Jeeps with bead locks. They rebalance your wheels every time you stop and start, so even leaving the trail with mud in your rim's your wheels stay relatively close to balanced. The down side is a small bit of noise below about 20 MPH and you can see part of them behind the rim
