    I know, but it seems as if it is painted when everything is together, so the paint is something like a seal

    Here's a shot of what the Mopar bracket looks like. It essentially bolts up to the upper 2 lug nuts.

    Mel should hire you to make these install videos.

    As much as I love EVOs products, we all know that the instructions are lacking in detailed info.

    Do the speed bumps at the mall count as crawlin?

    N.S.D.Q.! and Army ........... ummm, we don't have a slogan anymore.

    Great tutorial as always... I too tore that bottom sticker in the exact same spot, wish I could have seen the video before my install. I wasn't going to use the taillight bracket but decided to anyway so the wires wouldn't be dangling, I am going to fab up a small bracket to move it behind the wheel in one of the open spaces.

    Hey Eddie,
    Got a question:

    So I purchased the mopar upgraded hinge and tailgate with purchase of the Jeep and although Iím not especially happy with it Iím stuck with it until I can fund either the EVO like yours or go into a bumper mount solution.

    Either way, the side rubber tire stabilizers are not long enough for the 37í tires with KMC bead locks. And no, the longer ones from mopar with the kit donít fit either. What did you install on yours. You mentioned bolting one in with an anchor. I find Iím about 1-2 inches short. Yep story of my life....
