bumper install -22FB

i have installed the 22FB bumber kit

i ordered it from canam (london ON). it took 3 months as AS factory kept delaying the order

the documentation , as usual, does not list all step or details

if you are handy, you can get it down in 1/2 day with one person

Wow nice addition! I bet with your solar additions itís really getting that custom look. Can we see a few more shots from further out?

I've been researching for the rear bumper. Why does the bumper extent out so much. Is there a storage in that area?

Yes, Its storage. we with keep the bulky items in it

you have the option of removing the storage and the bumper would be much closer.

given the limited storage already, i need it

if you plan to install a bumper, you should tap thread into the bumper posts as the metal is hard. AS does not mention this , but if you don't, you wont be able to get the bolts in

here are the final looks.

we filled the bumper area with our bulky power cables.

here is are cleaned , lit curb side storage area and we moved the fresh water hoses to a shelf i build atop the gas cans

The bumper and the solar seem to complement each other and provide balance.

I donít find the bumper to be water tight, you may want to reverse the contents of your storage areas, leveling bricks and sewer parts are waterproof not so with electrical connectors.

no, its not water proof.

i added extra holes in the bottom so that water flows out easier.

the power cables are very bulky and so were the fresh water lines.

that's why i looked for new homes for them
