Yeah I can't complain, the fitment issues are basically my fault, mostly the line-x's fault. The stuff is THICK. Have you seen Dirtboundoffroad's thread in the vendor section? He just introduced a trick tire carrier that bolts to this bumper that will be mine shortly. I broke about half the bolts for the flares, had to drill them out and tack weld in some more screws, that was fun. I did some more tweaking on the bumper tonight, got the flares back on and trimmed up. That side peice is still a little crooked but I'm still not done yet, the garage was just getting to cold



Some beef showed up today. Had these on my TJ and loved them. Can wait to get them installed.

Looking good. I need to look into new motor mounts. Mine seem to be ok, but I know I ran a nice beefy set on my '89 LX pony car and it was a night and day difference in just how "solid" the car felt. If it has the same difference on the Jeep I may be very interested!

If it's a good deal, don't pass it up. If they want anything close to what nice 4.0 would cost....wait and ge the 4.0.

I don't have them on yet but I think they will do just that. They gave a nice solid feel on my TJ and that was without also adding the poly trans mount like the XJ will have. They do transmit a little bit more of a vibe from the engine. But not really in a bad way, it's just a little different feel.
