I think it looks pretty sweet! Good job.

Looks nice, ALFA! I like the chrome bumper guards, bull-bar, and the chrome side-steps, too. Nice look.

Thanks ....they are actually all heavy polished stainless and all genuine Mopar parts except the rear corners that Mopar do not make ....not to be confused with the feeble alloy ones they also do. Hard to find here too!

If you can't fix it with a hammer, you've got yourself an electrical problem!

Does Mopar still make them? P/N's?

Finally decided on a cb antenna mount. I'm going to run a 102" fiberglass whip for now so I wanted something that could take a beating. Hardware store to the rescue again. A pair of 6" angle brackets did the trick. One 6" and one 8" might have been better. Sorry for a solo, mediocre pic. That is below the taillight, curbside.

Excuse the sidebar, but what sort of tow ball is that? I've seen the Euro-stye goosenecks, but never one like that.

It's a std 50mm tow ball. Same as the goose neck but bolt on rather than fixed. Probably the most common type you will find in the UK. Maybe the plastic cover is making it look a bit different!

Parked by this wrangler with a 5.7 swap! Guy wasn't in it but by all the jeep gear I figured out who it was inside, some company in Detroit did it pretty cool ride!

Really neat, they seem to be common down here in DFW, generally in Tx.
