NO NO NO. That is an ARB Bull Bar. The one on the 5.9 limited is a Hansen. They are both made of steel. Only the Iceland off road is fiberglass and it looks like this.

Yes, they are running the RE Longarm Kit.
When I was installing this kit on my ZJ about a year ago, people on this forum where really badmouthing them bad.
Recently it seems like more people here are using them and have good things to say about them!
Overall they are very nice, but the shocks where horrible. From my understanding they have a different company making the shocks now.

I mostly like the clean paint job and the fender trim and sliders, what's the approximate cost to do this to a ZJ?

that front axle is probably 6 on it's own, if not closer to 7500.
don't know what he was thinking going with the hi 9 in the rear, it's weaker than a 44 in that application.


I/we badmouth the re kit because it uses all the worst elements of every other long arm design out there. when doing something like a long arm kit you have the opportunity to fix the flaws in the stock suspension type, they dropped the ball there in favor of "bolt on installation" same as IRO did.
