well the buyer just stopped talking to me all together. he kept making up excuses as to why he wouldn't contact me. oh well.

BOT: my front lower coil isolators completely came apart. they have only been in since last August. I'm gonna throw the old ones back on (they were in good cond. when I took them off) so now the jeep sits a little nose down. I ordered spacers for the front to level it out.

thinking I may build a Front bumper in my spare time also. should help the jeep sell better

I decided if I still have the jeep, I'll keep doing stuff to it to help it sell or maybe keep it in the long run.
found some doors to chop up into half doors. the guy has a pass. front and both rear for me. I still have to find a driver door. and I'm also searching for some cheap metal to make a front bumper.

When I built my bumpers I went to all the metal yards and scoured there scrap metal. I built both bumpers for under 200 a piece.

that's awesome! I live pretty far from any good metal places but I'm sure I'll find what I need. out of all the custom rear bumpers I've seen, I think I like yours the best. (it's got awesome clearance/departure angles)
I have something a little different planned for the front though.. since I have the hidden winch plate already.

Thanks! The hidden winch is real nice and you won't have to build a bulky front bumper to house it, thats gonna be nice. My favorite front bumpers wern't built around winches.

if you do an axle swap, go with 60's and do it right the first time

I swapped in my JK 44's and the jeep has been amazing in Moab with them.. but I just keep finding myself wanting more.

when the WJ is gone, im going to slowly collect parts for a TJ build. 14 bolt, d60, 45's etc

I love the my WJ but I cant take it on most of the trail here in Utah and have it street legal at the same time.
So my next build will have no intention of being street legal. its too hard to do in Utah
