Collected a $1400 check for repairs from the insurance company. Now to find a shop to pull the front back out how it needs to be and start gathering parts. I think I see a real bumper in my future if its in the budget!

any Bang for the buck ideas?! I Haven't really looked around.

Flatland 4x4 sell plans which saves on shipping. The jcr kit is a nice looking option.

Other than that, I dig the KOR/protofab stuff. Or wait for notch customs to get off their ***** and give us their bumpers.

Needed to keep the back a little more organized. So I came up with this. Its all metal, mostly 22 gauge steel angle for the frame and 24 gauge perforated aluminum for the basket things. Without any of the gear in it, it only weighs about 30 pounds. A lot lighter than the wooden drawer I used to have.

I got a bad buzzing when I strapped my spare to the roof. Duct tape fairings between the straps cured it

My ZJ has never been stuck, it was just taking a break from being so awesome!

That looks really awesome. My ZJ is my work "truck"/ DD. I have been looking at various designs, but that looks fantastic!

I personally really love the ARB bumper, though it is pricey.

Good Day, Bad Day, Sad day, Great Day!

Sad day - I have posted my '94 Stang here & Craigs for a while, looking for another ZJ. Today I parted with one of the best cars I have known for 30 years of playing with 4 wheeled toys.
Good Day - I did get to trade for a Jeep!! 2000 Cherokee, (his wife's car)
Great Day - The new owner found out that he was the new owner when it had a bow on top!! A extremely happy Afghanistan Vet woke up to a smooth little ride!
Bad day - I was not there to see it!!

Thank You for your service!!
