We RARELY get snow days. and I don't think it messes up your alignment, usually only hitting things hard would mess it up I think.

so far, put the truck on the nose once, pushed over a corner fence post, ran over a medium-ish tree to see if i had the horses, and literally pretty much flattened a grocery cart. that babys solid. the back bumper needs unibody tie-ins, but right now the rear bumper hasnt got any tow points anyways. i just use the hitch.

the c-channel and the mounts are the part that are beefiest, the tube is only 1/8th wall, the mounts and c-channel are 1/2" plate grade. expensive stuff, but lighter than plain steel and solid

that front bumper has been yanked on pretty hard, buried her in sand up to the rockers and had a double pull on the front end, she held nicely

This is my driveway this summer with my chili pepper red xj, my sisters silver xj, GC limited, and friends Rubicon.


Heres the 2 XJs after being washed.


I'm lifting the Red XJ probably at the end of the summer, thinking the 2.5 OME with 30" BFG T/As, or the RE 3.5 with 31s. Suggestions?

Okay, last bit of hijack ... I dig the paint job and I like the bumpers. The "stinger" ... not so much.

You need far more armor than that if you do anything besides parking it, but I can see all that steel turning some heads! Thanx for pix!

I'll park next to a nicely equipped TJ at school if I can. I parked next to it with the intention of crawling around under it one time, only to find the owner was still sitting in it having breakfast.

Has anyone ever done that before? Randomly crawl under lifted Jeeps in parking lots? Somebody please tell me I'm not the only one.
