That bumper should tie in well. I love the meaty look XJs provide. I just bought one. I have a built YJ and now im embarking in the wonderful world of XJs.

I've been laughing about it for a few days. I tried to put it in my sig, but didn't work out. Got any other plans for the Jeep? The Nates bumper looks good, how long did you have to wait on it for?

yeah its funny haha. well the bumper/paint and tune up have sucked my funds which are very limited. knee injury to deal with and before that i was in cross country so too busy for a job. i want to get some lights for the bumper, but it will have to wait. i also want a rola roof rack, gutter mount cross bars, d windows and a hitch. hopefully i get d windows and a hitch for christmas. well nate is about 2 hours from me so i emailed him and he said he would have it ready in a week and he did. he gets a bad rap but i gave him the benefit of the doubt. he just seems really busy cause he has a good product for a great price.

I totally agree with you. I work as a checker at a local grocery store! Ha. My funds are very low, but I do what I can, just takes a lot longer to save up, having to pay for gas & insurance.
All your plans sound like a good idea, you should look for some Moabs, Icons, Ravines, or Canyons. It'd look clean, everyone on here has Soft 8's or D-Windows, but to each his own.
Ah well you got lucky w/ Nate for what it seems like. For the price he list his bumpers thou, you can't really pass that up. Whenever I am able to get a new bumper i'll definitely be shooting for an ARB Bull Bar. I love them.

moabs cost sooo much. haha. but i absolutely love them. the appeal to d windows and soft 8s are they are black, and they are cheap. two great things in my book haha. i love arb's but price.... turns me away. im probably too much of a stickler on price haha.

Lol in my area you find a set of 4 or 5 from $250 to $350, you just got to look around.
Can't go wrong thou w/ Cheap and Black. Black wheels are pretty money.
Yeah ARB's are quite spendy but they are great quality. I'm hoping to find one on Craigslist. Modifying my Jeep is far away thou, i'm trying to take care of everything Mechanically first then have some fun on lifting, sliders, bumpers, etc.
Rust eating your Jeep away?

ARB stuff is way nice. there was one on craigslist around here a while back, i forgot for how much. still pricey though. RUST! i want to shoot whoever decided salt on roads was a good idea. everyone should have just bought a cherokee for the winter you would barely have to pull out the plows. i hate michigan winters so much. 12 of them plus 184xxx will do bad things to a jeep

Ha very spendy but im going for top quality on everything. I love the look of the ARB as well.
That is insane! Yeah it seems like Michigan Jeep's always suffer from Rust if they are from an older ERA. Just talk to your Jeep nice and she'll treat you right
