I guess Black Betty will be getting a winch bumper sooner than planned thanks to the kid in the white XJ whom was a new driver paying more attention to his female passengers than the road an ran a red light, Slamming into a civic which spun 180* an the momentum carried it into my XJ that was sitting Stationary at the light !

The good thing is noone was hurt badly (I pulled a muscle in my back an popped a rib out of place )

On the plus side I was the only one able to drive away an His insurance is helping me build/repair my Jeep !

I wanted you to replace them soon so I could ask for your stock ones. I have stupid textured ones that have turned gray.


Glad you and your jeep were ok after the wreck. The pics reinforce why I will never go back to driving a car.

I went to the doctors today, An I had knocked a rib out of place the Dr massaged the muscles an popped it into place so I'm feeling a ton better now !

As for my XJ it would have been totaled, But I was able to raise the value of it with receipts from my Wheels, Sliders, Headunit, Headlights/Headlight Harness, RE 3.5" lift (thats not installed yet). Since the Adjuster took that all into account I was $300 away from the 75% of value that will claim it a total loss.

Next week I will be getting a check for almost $2700 So with in a few weeks she will be all better .


Once I get my check I will be ordering a Rigid Front Winch Bumper, JCR Gastank skid , Spartan locker for the 8.25, and a XRC8 Winch or maybe a Guinea Pig for JF and buy the new Quadratec winch that is based off Warns old M9000 which is not in production anymore .

As for the header panel I will be getting one from the scrapyard an painting it myself

Sucks that happened man. I wish I took the 2300 from insurance to get tubes and new kevlars when I got in my accident. Instead I just let the body shop handle it haha.

Ya live you learn right ? This is how my TJ was built also. In the meantime while waiting for the check I have a hard time looking at the damaged XJ but all will be better in due time !

Just a small update !

Yesterday, I had ordered a Dirtbound Offroad Extreme Hoop Kit for the Rigid FBW2 Winch Bumper that I am going to order on the next few days. Once it arrives I will take it over to Terry (Rigid Fab) an I'll have him weld it up while he is making my bumper !

This is what the hoop look like for those whom live under a rock an have not seen it !
