Nice. I'd love to do that to mine to finish my "blacked out" look. Cops around here are always eyeing me in my ZJ though. It's big, it's black, it's loud, and it draws attention.

The whole plastic piece behind the grill. The lady who owned the Jeep before me hit a deer and lost the grill and smashed that plastic piece into a bunch of pieces. She also broke the whole passenger side headlight, turn signal, and all that. I bought all brand new headlights and everything for it. The headlights and everything were in about a week ago, just now got the plastic piece for it so I will be putting it together by myself today before work.

Anyone know what in the world I use to put this on? I figured I would get whatever I needed to put it together in the box, but I was mistaken. The Jeep came to me without a grill or this piece, so I have absolutely no idea. I also do not have an owners manual with it. Kind of stuck here.

The "plastic" piece is believe you are reffering to is the header panel and it bolts in. Just follow the holes across the top in the front and underneath. It should take no more then 20-30 minutes to put on. Grill then screws into that with screws in the front and bottom. The headlights will bolt into and clip into the header panel.

Played on a loading dock. I was impressed with the flex that the IRO lift has.

Certifit sells the plastic piece for like $15 look it up online. Then there should be screw fasteners to attach it behind a grille. I had to replace mine after the ex wasted some idiot.

The hitch is going bye-bye. Its got holes rusting thru it. It looks like the previous owner bathed it in salt. I've got a replacement on the way for it

Took some flex shots on my way home from work today.

Edit: and its running like ****. Just ordered my third o2 sensor in less than a year and a half, and it stalled twice on my way to work.

that would be a crankshaft bearing.... don't lose it and put it back in exactly as it came out.... bad things happen otherwise. unless its worn beyond reuse, in which case replace it.
