Final word to from the insurance man. I should be getting about $1,900 sometime in the next two days. Anybody know where I can get a bumper cover and some absorbers for less than that?

Its going to be very difficult to find a nice 5.9 bumper cover. Youll have to settle for a different color limited and have it painted. Head to the junkyard. Youll have plenty of money left over.

If you were going to lift it, Id say get a nice steel bumper.

Either way, buy yourself something nice you otherwise wouldn't have, and save the rest. Hmm. Maybe I should try this...

There's a couple people on tsf.net parting out niners. I've already emailed two of them about the possibility of getting a slate bumper cover. No lifting in the plans, but some DT headers and cams would be nice...

And while the money sounds nice, the hike in my premium is going to be painful. I was happy sitting at $49/month for full coverage as a 22 year old male with a couple tickets on his record. Not anymore!

Iv for a cover and absorber offt 96 that are yours for the price of shipping if you want

Edit: unless the bumper cover you are getting is. Niner cover. Those are different from the rest right?

Got a bumper in great shape and the absorber for $100 from the pick and pull. It's really close to the right color. One letter off on the paint code though. Looks like its time to start setting up a booth!

Finally had a day with some decent weather. It snowed a little, but it was ok. First order of business was the stupid steering wheel. I'd give up my first born child to find one in good condition, but I've given up on that. This will do for now.




I called a local yard and he said he had a bumper in for me. I pulled it myself and $100 later it and the absorber were mine. Can somebody tell me (honestly) what color it is? I'm color blind and didn't think to get the color code off of the Jeep. Again, out with the old and in with the new.




It looks a little nekkid...



Test fit



While I was under there I decided to replace the horn because mine didn't work. It does now.




And yes, Z88Z, the plastic header panel was cracked. I didn't notice until everything was off. For now, some Gorilla Glue will do. When I take it off to paint the bumper, the plastic will get replaced. The gloves are for you, too.





All buttoned up. I have a license plate bracket for the first time ever...



Some head light restore to hold me over until I get the new ones.



A quick run through the car wash and some Turtle Wax Ice finished off the day. I'll break out the clay bar and really clean it up... One of these days... You can see where the drivers' side clip is still a little bent. I'll fine tune that when it all comes off next time. This is just to keep the Popo off my case until all of my stuff comes in.
