You're right, but when they difference is between an a/t and an mt/r, the mt/r is taller.

Factory 3.55's.

I'll get pics of my rigidco on in a little while.

Ah, yeah. That sucks. Swap some auto axles.

Here's the pics of the rigidco. It wasn't too bad to install, and the front end is soo much quieter, tighter, and more solid. I love it.

I also figured out how to mount my Hi lift on my rear bumper, with only 2 bolts! It's super solid, and free!

Thanks man. The paint looks a lot better in the pics, but I maintain it, so it's alright.

that bumper came out really good

So on the rear bumper were the holes already there and you just popped it in. I know they sell a hilift jack carrier with their bumper.

I take it you like it a lot. I've been considering the same bumper lately.

Mitchell, can we see how this bumper finishes out on the sides?

No the holes weren't there. I drilled them, and mounted it with 2 bolts. Idk why people buy the c4x4 mount, but it fits fine. The bumper is AWESOME. No probs.

Heres some decent side shots.

Thanks man. It looked a lot worse when I got it. The guy neglected the paint, and the bumpers were smashed and faded. Now I've relaced all that **** and it's looking good.

Little things like 25 bucks worth of bedliner on the sides did a lot.

Oh, and the rear bumper? $320 from a NAXJA part out. The front and rear bumpers add up to $750. Hardly a budget build, but good steals have made it all possible.

This is a fantastic build for a mild rig. Seeing this makes me wish I had gotten an XJ when I was more serious about offroading. If I ever do build up mine, this thread will be my bible.
