Dang that looks fun. I need to get that front/rear bumper combo as well when I get back from my deployment. Did protofab cut you any deal that you bought both from them?

The front bumper is LSR, ordered from Lone Star Racing. I got the rear (Protofab) a few months before the front.

Thanks for the info. Does protofab make a front? I thought they did, or at least saw it listed somewhere.

Thank goodness Iceland Offroad made a light enough bumper for the 4.0 owners...every time I see your Jeep I want an aftermarket front bumper!

I know it........my WJ is a slug now that its lifted. I was lucky enough to get a tow package with 3.73 gearing. I can't imagine how bad it is for the rest on 'em.

The lift doesn't bother my I6; it's the steelies and the 31" tires that bogs it down on the road. It's got enough power to spin em' in the mud...but I wouldn't want to see it try with anything larger than a 31" tire unless it's on an aluminum rim.

My steelies and 32's went on at the same time as my lift so when I say "lift"........I mean the combination of all my crap. I am getting used to it though. The jeep had plenty of power in the little offroading I have done with the 32's.

Turned 180k today.

I just installed my roof lights, switches, rock lights, fuse panel/distribution and relays. Pics when I finish up all the wiring.
