What'd you pay for the bumper? It's nice. What kind of mounting system does it have? It looks like it's time to get rid of the factory hitch. That'll gain you a little clearance. Just get a drop hitch if you need to tow. Very nice. Yes. I'm jealous.

I have an adjustable trackbar up front, and that's with 2.5". It's not even off 1/2 an inch in the rear so I'm not too worried. It's maybe 1/3" at most. You can't even tell just looking at it.

Yes, it snows in Texas.

I paid $250 from a CL partout. The main structure is a 3/8" c channel with 3/8" angle iron welded and gusseted on the bumper side, with 2 mounting bolts each that go where the 4 factory bumper/hitch frame studs go. It's got 1/4" plates top and bottom plus the bolts also go through the skid and hitch. And as for the hitch, yeah, I probably should have dropped it when I had the bolts out, huh? Oh well, I'll get it done this weekend.

I went all adjustable about 3 months into owning the jeep, but that pic is from the weekend I bought the jeep, with those awesome 3" lift BB-coil hybrids on page 1, and stock trackbars, that rode like total dog crap and wobbled everywhere. :thumbsdown:

No.. After 96 the speedo went to 120 mph. You only have a 100mph speedo, so it wouldn't work. I'll check around for a 93-95 set.

No, but these ones wiggle at freeway speeds, and the lights need to be painted anyways, so I'll do a write up on the new ones this weekend.
