[QUOTE=Benderff;9507066]Thanks. I haven't taken very many pictures. Is there something you would like to see?



I was looking for a side profile shot. I'm trying to see if I want to go with savvy armor or rokmen.

I'll try and snap some shots for you in the next couple days. I am VERY happy with the Savvy sliders, and corners. Best fit I have seen, great service, solid mounting. Plus my rig lost a couple pounds and added full corners at the sametime.

I installed the CD player, and powered sub today. Works great and I can plug my Ipod right into it. Sounds like it has a little more power to.

Here's the stuff.



Crutchfield sends everything you need.



I pulled the rest of the carpet, and the center console out. I like the look without the console, and there is a lot more room. This should help for the dogs to.

EBAY time.



The little sub was easy to wire. Cut and welded some scrap I had for the brackets.



All done. Sounds a lot better then the stock set up.

Wow. I like the idea of the one seat in the back. Is that the seat bracket that came with it or something you fabbed up?

Looking great Bender!

Heard anything about your promotion results? I'm studying for my Engineer test right now... so many flash cards!

You've inspired me to take off those lame SPORT stickers. Like the clean look.

I've read all the threads on the Anti-Rock and am going to order one up next month, but I'd love to hear your comments when you throw it on too.


Cheers from L4553

I used L metal. Cut to length then I cut the needed profile so the seat was not rubbbing on the bracket. Then drilled the holes for mounting.

Thanks. I didn't do that great, so no promotion this year. I did see how the test works so I'll be more prepared for it next year. Good luck studying. I'm excited for the anti-rock. I will post up as soon as it arrives and I can get it on.

Thanks dude! My plan is to be ready for 35's when the tires I have now wear out. 35x10.5s even.

I finally made some time to work on the Jeep today. I have way to many Jeep projects backed up.

Currie Atni-Rock time.

Out with the old.



Easy Install!



I think the arms a little high, but I didn't feel like cutting the rods. Plus with Currie 4" lift springs in the future i'm not real worried about it.



Started work on the bumper finally! Worked out how I want to finish it out. The clevis mounts should be here in a day or two so I can get it done.



Set the winch on there to check out the sag. Not bad at all. It will be even better with the Amsteel line on.

Thanks! I'm getting used to the bady roll, but it's not bad. Have fun with the install. It was pretty easy.

Thanks to some idot at Jeep (plastic and metal design) I needed a new radiator. I ordered a full metal replacement from Radiator Barn. I hook Stu's advice and changed the thermostat and belt while the radiator was out. I also changed the upper and lower hoses. Boring stuff.




On to the bumper!

I boxed the ends and lower lip in, and got the Clevis mounts on. It needs a little more touch up with the flap wheel, and then some tabs for the hawse fairhead.

Look great man, thinking about picking up that same base bumper and doing something similar to what you are. Are you planning on adding a winch hoop? I like the look of the small hoops personally, not a full stinger typically though...

Thanks! I wanted to add a hood line hoop. I decided not to in an effort to keep the weight down. I'd rather not add spring spacers if I don't have to. Plus after doing some research it seems they don't do much roll over protection like I had wanted anyway.

I was lucky to have a local shop that makes a nice lower arm mount, so I bought from them. There are a number of companys that make them. It's just a matter of cutting off what you don't need and replacing with the new mounts. You just have to watch the rear portion where they meet the spring buckets. That reminds me I need to order a set of the Currie weld on gussets for the new axle. If yours are not bent to bad you might be able to bend it back and use something like the currie gussets to help fix them in place
