Rear bumper was already posted on page 4 I think.
I'd like to pick up a logans metal front bumper since they're local, but can never get in contact with anyone.

You'll need the wiring harness as well. Its easy to pull. You'll probably want to bring a 4'x12" piece of paper to make a template of the holes you'll need to cut into the headliner. Because its a 00 it should be plug a d play. I got mine out of a 98 and had to pull all the pins and replug one connecter.

Where does the wiring harness connect into? Thanks for the info.

Passengersside, right by the fuse panel. Mine was 2 plugs. I unplugged the old wiring harness and plugged the new one in. You'll also want to grab the Tempature sensor, its below the front grill right in the center.

The open plug behind the bumper?

How did you run your wiring back into it, up the A piller?

Yes and yes. When you remove your old wiring harness just replace it with the new one

Put the rough country sway bar links on:



The rear fender flares are back on now too. Stupid salt is already making my IRO leafs get surface rust, winter needs to be over so I can take the whole thing apart and wire brush the underside and put on like three coats of chassis saver.

Filed my taxes, trying to figure out what I should all get. Maybe just go for the big one and get tires. I'll have around $1000 to spend extra. If anyone has a suggestion, feel free!

I've been looking at the RC quick discos. Tell me what you think.... Quality wise. Why'd you get them over JKS discos.

Price mostly hahaha.
89 (for two day shipping) total. vs. 1xx?
Quality wise they seem very stout, though I won't know for sure until I flex it out or something, which I may just baby flex it when I get home from work today in the back yard.

Got ran off the road yesterday, my front ds is currently out so I had to get my friend to pull me out with his truck. I was coming down the hill making a wide right because they hadn't salted it yet (salt truck drove by and asked if I needed help) and some ******* in a new silverado came flying up making a wide left and starting flicking me off and staring at me while I was there first and trying to make the turn without sliding. So I cut right a little bit to let him go pass me and when I did I slid into the guard rail. For a minute I thought I was about to eat the hillside and roll. It just grabbed my tire and stopped me instead.

No damage to the Jeep because I sit up so high, and all my steering components are fine. Guy even turned around and drove back down the hill like 10 minutes later and just stared at me like I was a ****ing *******.

Better idea of how close I was. Had I been going even the speed limit I would have ate it.
