Is that the rival bumper? If so thoughts?
the Rival bumpers are really nice quality and lightweight. The winch plate/bumper support is steel so it’s strong where it matters.

I had one on my previous JT before we went full Road armor and we still run It on our 2dr.

Diesel JT on order (again)
How “stubby” does a bumper have to be to clear 42s? Obviously this one works but what about a slightly wider like the rock hard 4x4 aluminum oneetc?

I think there are too many variables like axle width/position, wheel offset, lift height etc. to have a solid answer to that question. We ordered 72.5" wide axles and will be sticking with a fairly agressive offset(-38) with the 43x15's. Once all the components arrive I'm happy to take some measurements.

A buddy of mine insisted I try a Hike-It throttle “booster.” They had a sale and I figured why not as I’m getting bored waiting on axles and related parts.
I didn’t expect much as I know it doesn’t really give me any more power, but wow what a difference it makes in daily driving feel.
I had one of the other guys at the shop that has a JLU diesel install it on his first as he drives a bit more “spirited.” When he came back from his test drive he immediately ordered one.
We both agreed it seemed to get rid of that dead zone the Diesels have at light throttle.

Is it basically the same thing as a pedal commander? Never heard of hike it. Is it diesel specific?

I haven't tried a pedal commander, but they appear to perform the same function. For the $120 shipped it was something worth trying. They are not diesel specific, my buddy that suggested it had it on his 3.6l JK(His would not work on mine, but the JL/JT specific model works across the lineup)

Would this interfere with adding any Banks gauges, a programmer or Tazer?

Not sure about the banks gauges but I use it with my Tazer. It goes inline with the electronic throttle harness and alters that signal, so I don't see why it would interfere.
