So you have D60's and no AR???? Strange!

Honestly my jeep is guilty of playing the part of a better built rig on paper also.... I think that's a testament to actually USING what you have, and being able to wheel a lot.

Now that the ugly stock sway bar is gone I'm looking at a new better looking and lower profile bumper. I'm really liking the Barnes bumper... Anyone have an opinion on it? The price is crazy cheap. I'm ordering the flat skid for sure, and just might order both.

I say go savvy for the bumper. But some might say I'm biased

Awesome! You won't be disappointed with it.

Piece of advice, if comes with a few spacers that go under the 6 holes that you use to bolt the bumper to the frame on top. Do yourself a favor and weld then on before painting. I tried sliding them under the bumper, that didn't work so well, so I ended up welding them. You'll understand what I'm talking about once you have the bumper.

No, my winch had provisions to mount the fairlead directly to the winch so I didn't need it.
