I got tired of my front tube bumper and I needed a stronger roller fair lead mount for my winch. So I ordered a new winch plate from A to Z Fabrication. While I waited for its delivery I cleaned up and painted my old stock bumper I had previously customized with the plasma cutter. Bought new grade 8 bolts and waited. It arrived a day early today so I painted it to match the bumper mounted up the winch and installed it. I like the way it tucks up nice and close to the grill. I am going to sell my tube bumper if anyone is interested in it. I will post it up in the classified thread.

I'm gonna sell it for a $100 bucks. I cleaned it up and painted it then my buddy wanted to see if he wanted to buy it. So he has it installed on his TJ right now but doesn't want it. So if you or anybody wants it it's available.

Nice! You shoulda looked into 4wp's special right now, buy synthetic line and you get the alluminum failead free! I am just raving about synthetic right now. I love the stuff, to hell with wire!

Jake, I remember you saying that you got your flares black again, what did you use and how did you do it?

Heat gun but it only lasts a month or two depending on the weather and use. Its free and takes out the oxidation and the white marks left by thrown rocks.

How about this shot John. The left side diamond plate is torn where my light was mounted. I didn't reinforce it but I was going to remove them cause I don't dig the chrome look.

I freshened up my flares with a light sanding and then some matte black Krylon Fusion paint. Looked great for a couple of years. I really need to hit them again tho along with my rockers, mirrors, door handles, etc

I'll pull all that stuff off this spring and clean it up.

My flares have never gone back to the complete gray they were before but they do lighten up some and I have a tendency to throw rocks into them and my mirrors.

I looked at that but this was about 300 bucks cheaper. I cant see getting rid of cable thats been used once. Maybe after it kinks or frays.
