Replacing that push bar with that nice simple bumper and trimming the fenders made such a difference. You really have yourself a nice cj sir.

Sorry it's been so long guys. Been so busy with work and school. Well last month I made my roll cage mounts, cut some tubing and welded in a roll cage. I don't have a finished pic yet because its not painted and I still have to weld in handles but ill get them to y'all soon. Here's some pics.

Since then I've angled the center bar a little to make it look line eyebrows and added a middle bar between the old cage and new ad on..

A week or so ago I went to pepboy's speed shop and bought a bunch of an fittings and braided lines, a fuel filter and a new air filter. I like the new look a lot better.
