Heater core was pretty gunked up needless to say.


My heater is now melt-the-vents hot. Well worth the effort. Ive got a few other pics of going through the motions that I may add later.

Took my daughter out for a little mild wheeling at a local spot today. She had an absolute blast.



She was in her car seat during the driving, FYI haha.

I hope your heater core doesn't start to leak now.

The heat was so weak I was willing to take the chance, nothing to really lose at that point.

Got my Dirtbound hoop setup in yesterday and tackd the tubes in into place on the Jeep. Pulled the bumper this morning to make a couple light tabs, finish weld and paint. Cant wait for it to dry so I can bolt it up.

Great work once again Brandon. Is the hoop part of the bumper purchased separately from the rest of the bumper? I may have missed that part.....

Looks great none the less.

Thanks man! And yes the hoop was purchased seperately and I welded it on, then cut out a couple light tabs. Both the bumper and hoop setup are made by Dirtbound Offroad though. Theyve been great guys to deal with everytime and run good sales often. Got the hoops on a 20% off sale.
