I pulled the same number Ass move. Did they charge you for the stinger or ship it for free? Nice looking rig BTW.
Unfortunately it was a separate item to be ordered, HOWEVER I have Amazon prime so technically the shipping was free! Thanks, I'm pretty happy overall so far.

I have the same one - really solid. Had a hard time stopping and put the Fab rear bumper and front rack on as well.

In the past I’ve had pit bulls, olde English bulldogges, and a boxer. Love the look! I’ve looked into Frenchies, Bostons, Frenchtons...then I met my first pair of Japanese Chins while staying at a bed and breakfast.

We just lost our first one a couple months ago. She was 9. We still have our 2 year old. I call her my miniature, long-haired bulldog. I would highly recommend a Chin. Not cheap, but much cheaper than Frenchies.

PS. I still love all the flat-faces and the one here looks super cool!

My condolences for your loss. I was gutted when I lost both of my first two girls (a Shih-Tzu/Pomeranian and a King Charles/Chihuahua) within months of each other. Nothing leaves a bigger hole in your heart than the loss of a dog. :crying:

I've got another two small mutts now; both have some Pug in them (in addition to Brussels Griffon and Pom) so they have smooshed up faces that I think are beautiful. Much like your two girls! :involve:

I bought an EAG front because I couldn't spend their kind of money on it. After the quality of this rack, I may go that route on the rear. It's really nice and they are one of the only people to do a rear, and it looks good too.

Which EAG bumper did you go with?

I installed a Made in USA Gator Tonneau cover today. Solid product that took 10 minutes to install with no tool and clears the bed lights just fine. Completely removable in 2 minutes if the tri fold doesn't give you enough room for your bed load at that time. I threw it up on Youtube as I hadn't seen anyone do an install with that tonneau outside the Tyger one on Amazon.

Other than a quick release for my antenna, haven’t purchased any upgrades in awhile. But finally gave in and put on a set of tube doors. EAG w/flags. They really are built well and imo look great.

The back side of the bracket has 2 metal ends on each side that fit into the channel of the factory rail (they keep it stable but don't lock). Then the bolt from the front center connects to a locking piece that rotates and locks into the rail when tightened. The result is the mount does not move at all - it is attached solid to the rail (but can be removed if ever needed with just the one bolt hooked to the locking nut). The bottom of the mount doesn't attach to anything - but it is so solidly fixed to the factory rail it does not move at all. Even with the gas can attached it does not wobble in any way.

As mentioned the bolt that came with it was about 1 1/2" so would stick out the front of the mount. The 1" bolt I got at lowe's fits absolutely perfect.

I found a youtube video of a guy installing on his truck and you can see the way it locks.
Then for Gladiator I recommend the 2 gallon I have fit sideways. Again I'm amazed what a perfect fit. Even the corner is notched exactly so it can be close up to wheel well.
Perfect, and thanks for posting the vid. I'll have to snag one of those brackets as I already have everything else minus the 1" bolt.

In addition to off-road trips the Jeep club that I am in does parades and charity rides. Many of the jeeps fly flags during these events. I bought a Camco receiver hitch flag pole holder and built a pole out of 2” PVC pipe, eye bolts, and carabiners. I’ve tested it to 50 mph and it is good to go.
