So today was a good day for my jeep. I got the new rocker guards put on, made custom disco's, painted the front end and diff cover, got the spare tire and carrier off and made a homemade holy sh*t bar out of an old bike grip. Here are the pictures:

I order my bumpers yesterday. I decided to go with the Smittybilt XRC front bumper and Smitty rock crawler rear bumper. I also ordered Procomp 6" 100w lights to replace my stock fog lights. They should be here on monday and hopefully installed by Wednesday.

Thanks, and i'll try to get pics posted up as soon as the bumpers go on I don't know of any real long trails but me and my friends know of some good powerlines and sandpits. They get boring after a while but there fun enough until i get all the stuff required to join baystate jeepers

Do you know of any longer (>1 hour) trails around here?

So i put on my new bumpers today. The front went on without any problems, the rear was a little more difficult. The PO welded some tabs on the stock bumper to mount a cooler rack on. so we spent a while grinding those off. After that, everything went fine. Here are some pics...

Smittybilt XRC Front and Smittybilt Rock Crawler Rear
