Yeah sorry, I'm trying to keep the format of the other forums and keep the pics in the first post.

The install wasn't bad, prep is key. Patience when you're squeegeeing is important, too. There are a few small bubbles, but I'll have to take a look at it in the daylight tomorrow.

I ordered the MOLLE panels from Xterra Performance.

So, I added a Bucksnort rear bumper last week, and just finished my CB install tonight. I am using a Uniden 520XL in my center armrest. I went a little different approach with the antenna and mounted it in the hood channel.  The antenna is a RoadPro RP-550.

Bumper looks great! I noticed you got your hood black-out on too. Looks nice. :)

Thanks, I'm happy with both. I'm not really sure how functional the hood black out is, but it looks good anyway.;)
