Side tubes

The front stinger is poison Spyder as well as the the side armor/tubes.
The only thing Smitty Built is the rear bumper/Tire carrier...which by the way for $380.00 is bad ***

Side Bars

If you look at the photo of my 1997 TJ iy has the Smitty Built Side tubes on it.
They took about 15min per side and were very easy to install.
You can install the Bar up for side protection or bar down to be used as steps. They are really nice.

Yeah, I got a rampage rear recovery bumper and an ARB stubby bull full frontal. I love the look of tube fenders but don't think I will do it on this TJ. It's my daily and I live in Illinois. Tons of salt and sludge and crap on the roads. I need good coverage sadly

Looking great man.
Quick question, did you do those fenders yourself, or did ya take those into a shop?

The fenders are an easy install.
It takes about 1 hour per side after you have removed the stock fender.

I still have not done front turn signals...that is the pain
