I think I may have messaged you about this on CherokeeForum. I'm glad to see you looking into this. Although I could certainly fabricate something like this myself and have a welder and plasma cutter to play with just the mere ease of a DIY kit like this pa me in the market for possibly picking one up. I'm not sure how much you work with others on design collaboration but if you'd like any input from a ZJ owner with fan experience I'd love to offer a hand in the brainstorming department... Just a thought.

I know its a 9 hourish drive for you but you could get it shipped to a company in Oroville, Washington and drive down to pick it up.

That bumper looks so very nice. I would love it more if instead of a winch there could be a hitch receiver and a power plug to go with my multiple winch point set up.

Will it for sure work for the 93-95? Or is it not known yet?

It's actually being prototyped on a 96'

The only front end change is the grille, correct?

Their complete bumpers are very reasonably priced, as well.
They will end up costing more than the XJ DIY kit. It requires much more steel, in fact, more than 1/3 more per bumper.

We should be good, we took this into account with the design.

No idea. We have long lists of products we want to design, but it just really depends.

You would have to declare it at the border coming back. But you would not pay duty on it since JCR would provide you with a document stating origin, so it should be exempt under NAFTA. You would have to pay tax on it though.

I've been a big fan of JCR for years with my XJ... And I've been considering a '97 Grand Cherokee that's for sale locally..... Maybe this is a sign from the universe...

When do you expect these to be available? AND... If you're doing the front now, is it safe to figure that the rear and rockers are the next projects on your list???

We cut the first prototype this morning, we are working on it as I type. Might be ready for production in like 10 days or so? Just depends on how smoothly everything goes.

For now, we are going to offer this front. If sales go well, we will probably work on a rear option.

We already offer Sliders for ZJ's.
