After building the awswome looking front bumper I need a rear to match. Also wanted to get rid of the flat bar bumper. So went to the local steel shop spent $70 in steel and built this. I love having my own tools it saves soo much money. Total i spent less then $200 on both bumpers.

Your back right tire is low on air.

Nice looking bumpers too.

Exhaust shop made it that long due to how thick my bumper/tire carrier was. I haven't had time to trim it.

I think we were both just kidding around.

Your Jeep looks great and we were nit picking silly things.

That's what I thought anyway.

Nice looking jeep.

Are you running the 5 or 6 leaf spring packs? I bought the 6 leaf pack with the intention of pulling a leaf after I ran them a while, I've just been too lazy to mess with it. Your front end seems to flex better than mine. I was hoping the springs would break in and catch up with the rear suspension after a few rides. These aren't nearly as soft as my previous full traction springs.

Im running the 6 packs front and rear. There pretty soft but also can be bouncey but I did build this to be my DD it just ended up that way. The springs takes a bit to break in.

Yeah, I think it's just that the front springs aren't soft enough compared to the 4-link. One of these days it will bug me enough to pull the springs and remove a leaf.

Yes, i dont want 60's two reasons, one clearance and two up here there made of gold you cant find a dana 60 front for less then 2k. Theres no reason I cant run 43's on a D44, Ford 9in combo. Hell i ran my 37's which weighed 150LBS each corner on my dana 30 for years even when people said that I would destroy it. But I never had any problems not even one axle joint breaking.
