    It is a very nice looking bumper but if it mounts the same as on pro model the JK it looks like it would have less ground clearance than the QP'er because it retains all of the frame instead of trimming it down. If I wasn't looking to gain ground clearance I would have kept my stock steel bumper, I liked how it looked & actually got complements on it.
    Both of the pro model ones I was looking at appeared to have the optional add-on lower shield to protect the sway-bar motor. The pro bumper itself appears to be the same height as the QP'er (that abbreviation seems better), but has a more rounded shape and welded on shackle mounts.

    Though you're right about the bumper not being shown for sale, as mentioned, the flyers I received in each EVO box shows it.

    had a hard time finding a good way to mount the front plate... Ended up using the bolt for the fair lead adapter & bending the plate around the bottom and top of bumper. I might end up getting one of those fairlead plate adapters.

    How about a shackle mount? There's a couple of different ones available.

    That's not a bad idea, I will keep that in mind as I try to decide what to do with my rear plate.

    If you get the EVO light bracket, it comes with a provision to mount a plate.

    Did you run all the way out or just to the springs and back to loon? Or did you run it from east to west? Looked like you were headed toward loon when we saw you.
