Once I get the winch installed it will be a lot more fun to take out. I will be the one to volunteer to get all the JK's out of the hole they ran into. I have had a good time with it. I really wish I lived closer to some of the trails that I see on here.

I like the new bumper man, although those lights mounted on it look like bug eyes to me!

Nice build thread. Scope mine out under the general build area...you could give me some ideas? You have done some sweet things. That is the same bumper I was looking at for mine. I am not too keen on how they bent the tubes for the guard, but it seems to be the best coverage for one with a winch. May I ask if you got a deal on it? What are you doing for a rear bumper? I want the tire carrier, but man they want some green backs for them.

That would be fun. I am just down the street from the Twin Peaks in Webster. There is also a local XJ club that I am part of on Facebook, Houston Cherokee Club, you should check us out. We are setting up a run to Creekside in the end of September.

I think that I am going to do a short night time beach run with another group on Saturday down by Rollover Pass if you wanted to go. Meet at the pass at 6pm. I think that I am the only XJ in that group.

Creekside Edge Offroad Park

Well it has been a while since I have posted on here. I have been working crazy hours and have had little to no time off during the weekend. I was however able to skip work today and go to a local off road park today with my Houston Cherokee group. We ended up with 15 XJ's.




I was able to test out the new front bumper. Went up a steep incline and slide towards a good size tree and hit the d-ring mount on the bumper. It also turned my passenger fender into a pre-runner fender.






I hit the tree that is right up the passenger fender in this pic.



Here is a video of teX-J going down a steep slope. He had a little bit of pucker during that little run.
