Thinking about putting these hood decals on but I'm on the fence. I like the JK mountain edition, minus the color decal.

My buddy and I have a once a month goal, but we missed may. I'm planning on heading down sometime next week.

Recent upgrades:

JKS tie rod



Hoodlift tailgate prop. I hated having the tailgate crush my legs. This works very well.



I also installed a rockhard 4x4 license plate relocator and oro plate light. The LEDs are bright.

Finally time for some updates. I haven't been around here too much because my best friend and Jeepin buddy was killed in July. We are both Deputy Sheriff's and he was shot and killed by a doped up piece of ****, who also died due to two gun shot wounds given to him by William before he died. I'm not looking for sympathy so leave that at the door. I however took a hiatus from Jeeps because it wasn't the same for awhile. I had some Rokmen corner panels in the basement that have been sitting there since June, and this weekend I went down to my parents to install the corners where it was warmer weather and no snow. Sorry for cell phone pictures.


Snow Friday when I left:


The install went smooth. The instructions were very detailed and I had no problems. Only problem I ran into was when I took the inner fender liners out I noticed some big rust problems. I knew I had some body rust under the bed that I was going to take care of but this brought it to my attention. So in addition to putting on the corners I also sanded and grinded the rust away and then blasted it with some Rustoleum under coat. Also, I had a Gr8tops tailgate reinforcement installed for my 33" tire, which worked great. When I put the tail gate back on I didn't use the frame for the tailgate, I just used the hinges. Rokmen corners come with a spacer for the tailgate side to match the additional 3/16" which is caused on the body side of the hinge. I ditched the rear bumper because with the tire now in the stock location it rubs the bumper. Mopar Rock crawler bumper is in the future which will fit the tire. I'm now rocking aluminum sliders and aluminum trail corners. Light is right!

Stripped down for the install:


Rust:


Corner ready for drilling:


Rust all gone:

Finished, also most of the snow is gone:

Thanks, I think Rokmen is the only company that makes short aluminum trail corners. High quality, fit like a glove.

I think the next move for me will be a gas tank skid and rear bumper to replace the stock one that I ditched. I am going Saavy on the skid so there is no decision there. Looking for opinions on rear bumpers. I have three in mind.

Genright rear crossmember. I like this one for the departure angle.



Mopar Rock Crawler. I like the stock look of this.



And but of course, Saavy. I like the light aluminum.




Opinions?

The Gen Right looks like a Rokmen but costs less . Wonder what the difference is ? And I thought I was the only person who like the OEM bumper ! I picked up one similar to the OME for my trailer project .

I believe the rokmen has a little bit more beef than the genright. The genright doesn't come under the crossmember I don't believe.

After seeing the Lojay LJ I began to like the mopar bumpers. They are expensive though, don't have a receiver or recovery point, and the front bumper is a little busy without the winch.

I have always liked the mopar because oft eh quality and the extra protection on the sides (under the tube). I am not a fan of any of the rest you posted because of the lack of protection.

And Aaron is right about the above.

After a second look I can see the Rokmen goes underneath where the Genright is just on the top and back . And I guess that makes three of us that like the Mopar bumper .
