The OrFab bumper was awesome to be honest, It has strong mounting points and a nice steering box tie in plate. It was tough too, I took the xj into a telephone pole at 40mph last winter and did zero damage to the jeep. I had to cut the center tube out of the bumper because it was twisted up pretty bad and weld a new one in place but it deffinitly saved my xj.


This must be a low range beer because it makes everything slower...

I got the rear end regeared today and I also took the tank out of the LJ so I can cut the second to last cross member out. This is so I can move the tank back 5" and get enough room for my stretch.




It's pretty helpfull that the furthest back cross member has the holes already for the gas tank bolts...


They line up perfectly...


Thank god there wasnt much gas in it lol, I deffinitly didn't think of that before I started by myself.
