Most tube bumpers are paper thin and crumple on the first tree or rock. If you have some thick walled DOM tube bumpers that's a different story.

purchasing any kind of body armor. steel is cheap, all you have to do is weld it yourself or find a buddy that can weld. it don't have to be pretty, if any of us were concerned with looks we wouldn't have bought YJs!

Yeah I agree with that. Bumpers don't need to be replaced until they no longer serve their purpose or just look awful from being hit so much. If you need to put something on them... just fab it on there. Even if you pay someone to do all of it... it will probably still be cheaper than buying a whole new bumper system. I am more partial to round tubular bumpers anyways (as you can tell since my rig has them in some amount on all sides).

Agreed if it's more trail than road rig. If you on-road more than off-road like I do though, the sound deadening and insulating qualities of carpet is great. Also... I personally like driving with no shoes on in the summer and carpet is nice for that since I'm not big on that sandpaper pedicure on my feet or whatever shiny scratch-able items I may have in the passenger footwell.

I disagree with this. I dont mind scratches and minor body damage but i dont want my jeep to look ghetto. Sorry, i have more pride than that. And when it comes to things like armor and bumpers, there is nothing wrong with paying for a well engineered product built by people with a hell of alot more experience than me. I paid big bucks for my PS rocker guards but they have been worth every penny and the little things like metal in the right place for tieing in future mods like a cage and body mounts and other thinks are perfect. We wont even get into my bumpers. Theyve prevented so much carnage and a lot is due to their design. Im just not a great fab man or engineer. Im a geologist. I also like a decent looking vehicle.

What is carpet doing inside a Jeep?

I was going to start this thread off with fuzzy dice, as that I have actually seen this a few times.

I may make a few people upset with this, it isn't necessarily a mod, but a package offered by Jeep at the time. The Renegade package.

i guess i'm a bit biased because i'm a welder by trade

he's right though, done poorly, it can really take away from the way it looks, theres a difference between 'rugged and well armored' and 'haggard and cheap'

Posi-lock is not a worthless mod. It's a good option to fixing a failed vacuum actuated system. I do think the price is too high.

There is nothing worse in the winter than carpet that never dries out from the snow. No carpet.
I would add anything that is suposed to increase mileage. All those little gizmos are garbage.
