Posted this is in the wk section but figured id post it here too.

I cut my front bumper today here are some pics...

It isn't too drastic, but I like the way it came out. Gives it a more aggressive stance and alot better ground clearance. I might eventually cut more off, but I didn't want to go too crazy the first time!


BEFORE:



AFTER:

















Still need to go over everything with undercoating, but I think it turned out good!

Not all the time. Every once in a while it will barely hit. It hits pretty bad offroad when it flexes and the wheel is turned though. After cutting my front bumper my rubbing on the street has gone away for the most part.

Pinch weld will probably be the next mod to fit 33's.

Thanks man! Yea those zip ties have been gone for a long time!

Yea front was the only part that took any time, the rear was simple!

Just a couple quick mods.

Got my cb and antenna all finished up:





And replaced my crappy plastic guard that it came with with a steel front suspension skid. Much better than the plastic!



Have another skid that shipped today that should be here sometime next week along with a few other things! *

How hard was switching out the fog lamps to the PIAAs? Were you able to wire them into the stock Fog switch on the steering wheel?

There's a link to the mopar front suspension skid. To get the tcase skid to mount you also need the fuel tank skid.

Fog Light Install

I like what you did with the front bumper. How much do you think it improved your approach angles?
