Thanks man, she's a 98. Bumpers are always fun, I used 3/16" MS plate.

Received a little box last night, plan to tackle this job today. Along with some RE 4* degree shims for my rear axle. Some updates later as I make progress.

We'll have doing some reading through my Haynes manual, and some troubleshooting I've come to realize that my head gasket is ok. However my oil filter O- Ring is compromised along with oil pan & rear main seal. So those will be taken care of next... I did replace the valve cover gasket, which was leaking pretty bad. Took her to the top of the street for a little flex'n after all the work was done. image-2533561227.jpg I was able to scrape the old gasket out completely and clean the surface with acetone. Did the same thing on the cover, just with a wire wheel. image-518901421.jpg Decided to tackle the rear cut and fold so that I can finally finish my rear bumper! image-2186410761.jpg image-2788249233.jpg image-2174497731.jpg Attachment 763305

Welcome to the cut quarter club. Looks way better and working/dirt removal in that area you have now exposed is 10x easier. Time for a sick wrap around bumper.

Do it, it's very easy. I don't regret it one bit. Just do what this guy did, I followed his guide & he build a wrap around on his JCR. Good write up

I've seen his thread, it's very nicely done. I think it would defeat some clearance purposes. I've thought of maybe cutting it to a stubby type, i don't know

Tonight i had about an hour to myself after dinner while my girlfriend went out somewhere. So i pulled the jeep into the garage, turned on the radio and finally re mounted my Vacuum canister. Ever since i added the new front bumper i haven't relocated my canister nor both my horns. I can check the canister off the list now. Well here are a few photos of the new location and how i did it.It's right next to the passenger side upper shock mount. I used all the pre existing connections, just re arranged them. image-1243117596.jpg image-1919420839.jpg

You might have a crack in your ac accumulator.

In your last photo you can see the metal can like object in the center. Just under where the metal line hooks into the can, do you see what looks like a crack? That is your air condition accumulator/drier. If its a crack its nothing to stress about, just something you would want to replace. It may just be the paint is about to chip off, either way I'd take a closer look at it.

Finally took care of my lower 1/4's. I couldn't for the life of me get the adhesive from the trim off. I tried it all! Plus the paint seeped through the tape so the lines didn't look good. Looks a lot better now though.
