My 98 sport build thread

Hey guys and gals here's some pics ands waiting for new parts. Lmk what you guys think.








I tried taking off the bracket for the flares but there's a bolt like 1 inch is there a faster Way of taking it off?
I bought the bumper for $100 on CL and order 3" lift and have 15 cragers on 31". So I'm excited to get the ball rolling. Please comment. Thansk

Yeah that's just a brush guard. It goes over the bumper. Good luck with the build.
