Well done flaps look ok, but those are a little overkill

I guess its a regional thing, no laws on tires stickin out of flares or flaps or anything around here.

allright, not too long ago, i realized that KOR plate bumpers that i got just dont to it for me, i thought i would like the look of the plate bumper, but something about tube bumpers that i just love,

so, i have been looking over designs of tube bumpers, and i have found a few that we are going to combine into makeing a set of KOH ready, steel tube bumpers.

i am going to sell the old bumpers to get funding for the tube to make the new bumpers.

the for sale thread if anyone is interested.

Do you have a design yet for the tube bumper?

I'm still looking at designs for tube bumpers for my own.

well, i dove the jeep up to reno today, abd then over to lake tahoe.

she is getting better, but still not with out issue.

the tail pipe piece broke off, so the exhause is cooking one of the joints again, so that is started to degrade the handeling, also, we have a leak on the back of the t-case, and it is moving to the drive shaft, and is being slung onto the cat, so there is some visible smoke when in stop and go traffic.

however, this ***** has some power! she can pull up the hills like a champ.

With flanging every exhaust compnent at least those issues will be a thing of the past. The bushing is more of a hassle of labor than cost so that wont be too bad, just a pain in the *** haha.

Oh BTW is she as much of a gas hog as she was the first trip?
