Not sure how much shipping would be...lol I could weigh it and find out though.

I just checked Nate's site and the bumper is $282.20 without shipping right now. And my bumper is less than a year old.

I'm gonna say shipping is gonna be arounnnnd 20-25 bucks or so? I don't have the money yet, if you still have it when I do i'll take it. If someone wants to buy it before me though don't hesitate.

Did some research today.

Talked to mudb8 about some general ideas and numbers. Checked out Stu's write-up on his site (Blaine helped Stu out with that, so that's double )

Looks like when I move down to 3.5" springs (come on somebody, trade me!) I'll be picking up some 13" long travel Ranchos. It'll take some number crunching but I think this is where I want to go now.

More research tomorrow...

I may just start this tomorrow lol.

I'll have more pics for you as soon as I can Ethan.

I also think I may be the first silver jeep on the forum with these corners. So this will be interesting to see

That is disturbing Zach. Wow. Umm...yea. I'm scarred for life.

And on that bombshell, I bring you a few pictures, the final one causing my progress to come to a standstill.

Alright, and on with the crappy cell phone pics.

Flares removed



Tail lights and license plate gonezo.


Got everything cleaned up and touched up some of that nasty rust.



A quick test fit (tailgate still on, fitting it just for kicks)



And finally...my very own momentum killer.


I removed two, count em TWO, of the tailgate bolts and stripped te other six...I saw this coming though and grabbed my trust 5/16th drill bit to drill off the head as mrblaine has described how to do. So I start drilling and 20 minutes later, that is all the farther I got. So I got fed up with it, and I'll try again tomorrow. Maybe I just need a better drill bit.
