I love your bumper. Maybe because everyone gave you so much **** for it, and you kept it anyways!!!! Hell yeah! Wish I could go play in the snow!!

I see you still have that bumper. That's a, BUMMER. <- that was a pun!

Have you tied it into the body yet? I remember you making the winch bracket/bucket, which highly kills your approach angle, but don't remember any tie ins.

We all laugh but I bet that bumper could knock down a house.

Yes its been tied into the body now. That **** aint goin no where I did the tie ins last winter but never posted them on here.

On another note- my brothr is deciding to lift his XJ 3.5" over break. He and I have one day to lift it than go to RauschCreek for our annual Christmas trail ride. Its the same lift Im running so the install shouldnt be to hard. Hes going to run the same tires I have for noe, I have two sets

Whelp looks like Im back again. Got more time to work on the jeep and its in my name now so I can do anything I want!!!! Been wheeling it when I can with my buddy in a 4runner. Graduated college this past May and picked a prime location to park that everybody had to drive or walk past to get to the ceremony. Actually had a security guard ask if we parked like that on purpose, told no it just happened accidentally. Got myself a job in Vermont which meant loading up my stuff from New Jersey and heading north. Couldn't leave a vehicle at home so I hitched the jeep to the truck and off I went. Built myself a tow bar that fits to my front bumper. Got an impressive 18 mpg towing at 65-70mph fully loaded. Got settled in and started to work on the jeep. Wanted to finally cut my fenders so I did. Got the rears done for now but damn its the best thing Iv done so far I think. On the down side my rocker panels are rusting from the inside out so it looks like Im in for some fun. I plan to cut the rust out and fill it with fiberglass. Doesn't look bad but its only the bedliner holding the shape. Sorry for being a pic w**** but finally got some good pics.

Glad to see ya back posting on JF man! Rear trim job looks good, and Im starting to like the cow pusher on that thing honestly. Built it yourself and still rocking it, thats more fab work than 90% of the unibody JF community does lol.

Even though you built the sliders (which look fantastic btw) now would be an awful good time to cut those rockers out and 2x6 it.

You could come down to NJ, do 2x6, and give those sliders you built to your best friend TJ.

Finally got internet at my apartment. I picked up a used D30 HP with the same gears i have now. Plans are to get rid of the rust, paint, WJ calipers, and new axle seals. Im debating on putting in a locker, I do live in Vermont where 4x4 will be used on the roads at times. I have heard bad stuff about front auto lockers in the front in snow. Any input from actual experiance?? Had the seller load it with me but that left me alone to unload it...redneck engineering to the rescue...
