It's true, man. I love the thing. I like your bumper and think it's very well crafted for the lines of the Jeep. So many look just tossed on, in-congruent with the front of the Jeep. I love the winch on there, also. The tires look great.

I want you to design my Jeep build now. lol Fund it, too?

Beautiful jeep! i've got a similar setup, 3 inch kit with the KOR front spacer, and am buying those same wheels tomorrow! haha anyways as i seem to be inadvertently following in your footsteps....how do you like the Grabber AT2's? i was going to go with the Terra Grapplers but the price on the AT2's is VERY tempting.

I hope you didn't order it with the gas tank "skid". It looked like a shovel! I had to cut that skid off (my gas tank is raised anyway).

Anyway, I used Krylon to paint it. About a week on, some poor lady destroyed her Audi with my bumper. All I asked her for was $6 for another can of Krylon.

It comes with the skid so I had no choice... Il see how it fits my dub without the tank tuck and if it is like a shovel we can modify it... You have any new photos of your ride?

No new photos. I went wheeling a while ago and no one shared any pictures.

The "skid" is easy to remove with a grinder. Four 3" welds and you will need to cut the ends. I cut mine at an angle for strength. The shkid is outlined here in red, and the yellow is where I had to cut.

Still no lights mounted yet, but I took some time to see what the snow was like. I heard Uncle Toms got 91 inches this week!

Here we are parked at Uncle Toms Sunday March 27:
