On a side note, I found out my jeep will climb 5 foot waterfalls that are pretty damn steep without slipping a tire! Good times!!! And to think, my to do list was almost complete for once.
Photo Evidence of the waterfall climb. Sorry no gas leak pics, didn't want the static charge from my phone to start a fire.

Need to go back and get pics of the first one that we didn't get cause it was the steepest and biggest I think for sure. I'll have to scout that area more on bike though to make more of it...

BTW, that's a smoking price on those lights you just sent me considering it includes them all!

btw, I welded the light tabs on it myself. It had a hoop over the winch with them up there but I didn't like the look so I relocated them.

I like the bestop bumpers. I have always been curious if that roller actually works. My question is why aren't you sporting a bumper that you designed, bottle openers and all?

Not sure about the roller, haven't had a chance to actually bump it up against anything. From the drivers seat yesterday on the first climb of the trio I felt like it may have been close but in reality it probably wasn't.

As far as not having the bumpers, couple reasons... That bumper was for the JK which won't fit my TJ. Also, I didn't own a jeep while I was employed there.



I could probably still get a smoking price on OR Fab stuff for my jeep but honestly, I bought my jeep with the bumpers and most of what you see already done to it. I'd consider one of their cages but I'd rather build my own using the tubing bender in my driveway and welder in the garage. Same with the sliders, I could've got a good price on a set of theirs but I'd rather make my own which are hard to see in the post above.

All I've done to the jeep since I've owned it is a SYE kit, swapped 3sp auto to 6 speed manual, installed a hood vent, blinged out with all my current companies stuff, and regular maintenance. I pretty much stole the jeep! I paid $7000 for it and it came pretty much as seen there. Inside is rhinolined, tuffy metal center console, it's got a rampage rear tire carrier/bumper combo, cold air intake, lifted, was on 33's now on 35's, 4.56 gears, etc...

All that's on my wish list for it is a ford 8.8 rear axle with locker and 4.56 gears and well, a gas line that doesn't leak too now! LOL I actually also would love to stumble on a rubicon 4:1 tcase but it's not major for me. If one fell in my lap for a good price I'd jump on it though!

How did that meeting go with all the design ideas?

Also, you never finished a story from before. The company at SEMA that just painted over your products. What happened with that?

The difference between stupidity and ignorance. Ignorance is doing something wrong and not knowing better. Stupidity is knowing better, but doing it anyway. Don't be stupid!
