Keep rubbing it in!!!! We've had so much rain that most of the main roads are washed out or flooded. Can't imagine what the trails look like.

found some pictures from when I first bought the jeep. (figured out how to use the iCloud on my iPhone and got some of my pictures that I lost). the rims are the exact same just one is gloss black with a machined lip and the other is matte black. matte black is more my style. plus I haven't seen either of these on a WJ before.

today I hit hells revenge for the first time! made it 90% of the was with only a little rubbing in the front bumper.. then all at once I lost a coil spring up front.. ripped off another set of fog lights.. broke the washer bottle and ripped my front bumper up pretty good! also met another WJ along the way!

took off the front bumper today to get ready to trim it up.. since Hells Revenge tore it up pretty good. kinda like the look with no front bumper though

wish I would have known how easy it was to remove the bumper before I ripped it up on hells revenge.. oh well!! now I'll start saving up to get a protofab front bumper instead

Steel bumpers are the only way to go. It's nice being able to approach any ledge and not have to worry about taking out your radiator.

I made mine. If I was buying one, I'd get the LSR, but there's no way I was going to spend that much on a bumper.

chopped my front bumper up. turned out great I think! also made my own quick disconnects for about $15.. SCORE! and I painted part of the grill insert red. also reprinted the front bumper to matte black instead of gloss.. hit the radiator support with matte black too since it shows now

Nice looking Dub! ill be in Moab next week, i cant wait! First time off the east coast!

Watch out with those disconnects, if they are not made with a hardened pin i'm not sure i would trust it, if one of those breaks on the road that would be one scary A$$ ride!
