Looks like the grille hoop needs some beefing up. It still saved the radiator though. When you go over backwards and on your lid it seems to bounce and smack the hood and grille hard. Still have to bend a good hoop for mine, since it can make the difference between a good or a bad day

Took us a bit of judicious sheetmetal work to get this one trail ready again the next day

Up front the hoop is the only thing that is messed up really. The hood doesnt have a single dent.

The plan is to tie the cage into the front hoop. It will be ready to roll again and again once im done.

Come on up. I bet we can work something out to make some. I already tweaked my pass side tube. Bent that 0.188 wall in the roll.

No damage per say. Just the grill and grill hoop. The radiator got tweaked alittle. These mod are for the future. I know Ill roll it again.

The engine cage look good. How are you liking the ORI struts? I'm contemplating them for the rear of my rig.

If your only doing one end I woundnt do it.

On a stock tj weight with a light rear end there hard to tune. My friend is running them in a rig on 35 and rear only and he is having a hard time with them.
On my rig I love them. Just cant race them.

Damn. I really like the idea of not needing a sway bar, limit straps, and bump stops. Maybe just do coilovers then.
