Just make sure you get it welded in.

Mine is starting to make some weird sounds on startup, just sounds like metal rattling around but its not welded in since my friend put it in, I think I'm going to pull it and just pay someone to weld it in.

Yea its way better than laying on the cold cement out in the driveway. Plus everything's at eye level so it takes alot less time. Also how important is the diff armor, we dont have much for rock crawling or anything like that here in michigan..

I thought the same, but people say that there could be anything and everything in whatever you go though.

I've read stories of people running over sticks or tree limbs and pulling up their diff covers and leaking out all their fluid without them knowing and wrecking their diffs, basically anything could happen.

Especially in deep mud people say there's rocks and stuff that you can't even see most of the time.

Its better to be safe than sorry.

Yea i guess it could save some money in the long run, i'm thinking about ditching the gas tank skid for now though and waiting until christmas or something to get one of those.

looks good to start, just get more protection when you can.

I'm getting that same lightbar and hellas soon too.

Yea i think i'm gonna start payin my parents for my jeep too because they bought it and i want to pay them back so its actually my jeep, so i think im just gonna buy that stuff and give my parents the rest. Then maybe once i get a steady job instead of just summer wood hauling jobs i can buy more armor and stuff. That light bar looks pretty sweet, but i might have to do a little trimming to get it to the right width?
