Going to a rear bumper that overlaps the cross member such as Rokmen or Genright and putting the spare in the tub. And switching to Metalcloak CA's and front TB if I can sell them. I have a guy that has spoken for the CA's. I just need to get the money to order MC's.

Both Trackbars and the shocks are still up for grabs.

Poison spyder has a nice new limited production rear bumper that they prototyped on Daddylonglegs.

It looks like this one:

Except the one on Daddylonglegs has a receiver. I would be interested in it with a receiver, but without I wouldn't use it. I need clevis mounts because I don't have tow hooks on the rear of the frame. and I think d-rings are just easier to use for recovery.

I'm looking forward to it. I have the spare in the tub now and it fits perfectly between the rear wheel wells and comes forward to where the tub drops down to the rear footwells. The only problem I have found is my toolbox that I leave in the Jeep is an awkward fit now behind the passenger rear seat because it is too big to sit flat on the floor there.

I getto rigged a cooler/toolbox board that holds everything over the spare when its in the tub. I have a couple pics in the end of my build if it helps. Works good and cost nothing

I will go check that now. I've been thinking about maybe putting a piece of plywood above as a deck lid and adding tie downs to it.

I test fitted the new Genright rear bumper/xmember today. I'm painting it tonight.

Don't mind my high tech floor jack extension. My high lift was acting up so I had to use the floor jack to lift the body.

It was only the body off of the frame so it was safe I didn't have any more 4x4s so had to use some 2x4s.

Yeah I ordered Tuesday afternoon, came Saturday. Not too bad for coast to coast. It's a nice piece as well.

I went to put the new xmember/bumper on the other day after painting it, but I couldn't get the bolts on that go into the xmember behind the gas tank because the Savvy skid raises the gas tank. I decided I would just wait and drop the tank the next chance I had to work on it.

Friday my last shock came in. Went to put it in today and 1 upper bolt (rear) snapped. Luckily I was already removing the tank, so it gives me room to work. Tried to pull the stud out with vise grips, but it wouldn't move. So I went at the nut with a hammer/chisel and it wouldn't break free. I sawzalled it as close to the shock xmember as I could, but there is still some left. Gave up after a while and decided to put the bumper on so I could at least get something productive done. So I was able to get the bumper on after a while. I'm getting tired of working on this thing though. Nothing ever goes like it should and it gets old.

Here's a pic of my dirty tank and a crappy pic of the new bumper.
