installed my TJM today, got some pics

So i got my TJM from Burtman Industries. It looks great and Jason is top notch over there. Great customer service, answered my many many emails extremely fast. The install was quite simple, i just had a hell of time getting the bolts off that hold on the tow hooks. So one trip to Lowe's later, with no bumper, after shattering a cheap socket, i got a new socket set that i needed anyways. What a good time to buy tools, right? So its all installed now and i love it. Here are the pics:

Very nice Drew! Gorgeous rig!


I'm curious... Do you have enough room behind the Procomp's to get that plastic grill insert out?

I have Lightforce 170's on my rig (on a TJM-17 like yours) and I had to mount them out past the front of the bumper a few inches 'cause I couldn't get the grill off if I didn't.

Here is the link i found that had the pricing details on it. it was 389.99.

/f57/group-buy-tjm-15-t17-prices-added-54928/

Thanks for the compliments. I love it. I'm not sure about the grill, i just put it on yesterday and i haven't even tried to take it off. when i can find someone to help me take it off, since its a 2 man job, i'll let you know if i have room. My rims were right around 475 shipped from Summit Racing. They don't charge shipping there, only a handling fee of about 8 or 9 bucks and they were at my house two days later.

Midiwall, just an update for you, i couldn't get the grill out either. I haven't been able to align my lights, i'm waiting til i got back to parents house so i can use the door on their garage to get it right. Its not that easy to do it here in the street cause there are too many street lights and i don't have access to a flat wall at my apartment. I had to notch my grill for my old light bar so i'm going to get a new one. Sooner than later now since i'll have to take off my lights to get it in. Ebay it is. I think that this will be a one time deal to get the grill out so i'm not that worried about it. I checked your site for a pic of how you mounted your lights. Do you mind posting a pic or emailing one to me? Maybe i'll do if its easy enough. Thanks.
