This included 100+ feet of wiring, 8 relays, $150 in switches and indicator lights, countless blown fuses, and a lot of patience.

For me, a project like this isn't difficult, it's just very time consuming and somewhat costly, so I would prefer nobody ask me to make one for them, as I will feel bad saying NO.

Anyone with the tools, research, resources, and mental stability can do this project. Believe me when stuff isn't going the way you want it to, you start kicking and throwing things, and then regretting it.

here are some pics of the fabrication process, enjoy.













Damn it, I was good with list till you mentioned mental stability. Guess I won't be doing a custom dash

Dat a$$

I dig that bumper. I need to build one. Hell, I dig your whole XJ. simple, clean, and unlike a lot of Jeeps on here, mods that make sense. Canyons are sexy as hell....

thanks! im about to get started on the front bumper. it will be the same look as the rear. Im waiting on a shipment of new shocks and rims for this puppy. need to get wider rims because these are too narrow for the tires. long story but bottom line BFGoodrich's specs are full of ****. they say a 7" wide rim can support 33x10.5, but it doesn't. go right ahead!

Silly question:
What happened to the tire carrier bumper you had a while back??
Seems you reverted to a stock bumper, and now you're fabbing another??
