how do your doors even close? haha

Do you have plans for your bumper by the way? I'm looking to try and make one or get one made and i like that design. Trying to imagine it with a wraparound brush guard....

Hahah I was amazed that I have no problems with my doors. A little late on the sliders... oh well ha chicks dig scars.

I don't have plans for the bumper. I just got too into it while building it and didn't write anything down. I pretty much made the whole thing out of cardboard and tweaked things til I liked it. Then transferred that to steel. If you need measurements when you're doing yours let me know if I can help at all.

I guess it really would be that easy... hahaha... i really gotta get a welder.

Can you snap a picture of your mount to the frame for me? and also a nicely lit pic of the whole jeep? i wanna see what the painted quarters look like a little clearer and photoshop is a pain.

This is the drivers frame mount for my bumper. I know in missing one bolt haha I cutout around the top steering box bolt so I wouldn't have to remove the steering box each time the bumper came off.

You would think it would be easy to get people to go wheeling, living in the epicenter of countless awesome trails in the Rockies of Colorado. But sadly that's not the case. Probably because most of my jeep people own yotas now haha poor guys... :/ I'm having wheeling withdraws here!

My one buddy has a badass Yota. 85 pickup on 37s full exo locked with 5:29s but he doesn't drive it anymore because my zj at the the time out wheeled him on a 4" lift with 33s and open diffs haha so he bought a jeep.

Get your cdl and come drive a truck for our disposal company! 25 an hour lol
