Thanks for sharing, you always seem to get lots of good pics
I start to drool every time I see your wheeling pics, and I still think that bumper of yours is one of my favorites.

The Wj lines worked with the Jk calipers but we have to trim the caliper a little to make the line fit.

haha ya it still runs and wheels once in a while ... I haven't been giving any love to it in a while, been focusing on school and the yj mostly.

Just got back from the rubicon last week as a full on test run for the YJ and she did great
