Does anyone know if there are floor reinforcements that are not that bright aluminum tread? Just curious. After seeing that Jeep picture a while back I am thinking that may be an upgrade too when I get back.

the best ones i saw.

By the way where did you get your rear bumper. i like it.... allright

Those look nice too clayboy , who makes them.
but i bet there heavy. see thats another thing you got to weigh in,
sure you can bullet proof the Rhino , but you are going to weight it down bad.
i dont want to add to much weight.

Trail Armor makes them, not sure on the weight. I have not added any aftermarket skids for the weight thing, but I'm thinking about these.

I am certainly going to replace the stock skids and boot protectors with aluminum ones.
and will most likely get the floor guards. i just dont know if i want the heavier
steel ones. the hunter works are aluminum.

Chris... cheers

I really dont want the "silver" look, but I guess that is why they make paint and undercoating. I am just playing with ideas. I would hate for a stick to come up and stick someone in the leg or something. No need for injuries that are preventable.

Chris, bumper came off ebay.........99 bucks. A little bit of a pain to install, but has no issues at all. It tilts with the bed, tailgate works just like normal. Just search ebay.......Rhino bumpers.....you will find it. Yank has one like it and turned me on to it. I like it so far. I also like that it has holes for backup lights to be mounted inside the bumper. Yank has that setup and it looks good. You will need a buddy to help you install it though. There is some drilling required.

bolted it on to absorb some of the noise....

Good idea on the foam. Yes, I would say that bumper would hold up well. It is bolted to the frame and seems as solid as anything I have seen. I wanted the J-Strong, but for 300 bucks difference, I am happy. I wish my King Quad bumper was this strong.

Be carefull with which kind of foam you use. A buddy put foam in a FJ to help keep the noise down and after 2 years it rusted through the body because the foam held in moisture.

LT , i am still confused ,how will the bed still dump with the tail
gate open. if the bumper is bolted to the frame. wouldn't the tailgate
hit the bumper. I may haft to get Marty to post me some pics
with his bed up so i understand. i need the bed to still dump with
the tail gate open... allright
also there is many on ebay. can you look and find the exact one
you have and post the link?

Chris.... :D

Okay, maybe it is the steel frame of the bed. All I know is the thing will tilt with the bumper and pretty positive with the tailgate open. I sprayed it out several times with the tailgate down and bed tilted with no issues. I may be mistaken about the frame, but I know it is attached to metal. There may be many on ebay, but this one is 99 bucks, Buy it Now. No one else sells them at this price.

The bumper does not bolt to the frame. The Bumper Brackets connect to the bed hinge bolts, and bolts thru the bed with 4 bolts. It tilts with the Bed and will dump with the tailgate open.
