LMAO! Rule one of photos - look at EVERYTHING in frame that you don't want there LOL.

Not all Wj's came with a transfer case skid and tow hooks. Mine didn't.

I would look for a metal fab shop that has a powdercoating setup instead of a place that all they do is powdercoating. That's what I did. The place that coated my bumper fabricates and powdercoats farm equipment.

Today I finished fitting my fender flares and washed the jeep! Just before the rain started that is. Waiting for a dry day to fit my long arm kit.
