How the f*** did you get that for 7300? kbb says it should be ~14k excellent condition, was someone desperate to sell it privately, or did you know someone? anywho.. first step is removing that bumper!

I'm 18 and had my jeep for a while. $4300 already sprung over. In the last couple of months I've put over 1k in it and getting ready for an axle swap. My uncle owns a small engine repair and landscaping business so I've worked with him since I was 13 now when I'm not working or going to college classes I'm workin on the heap of Jeep.

One of my Dads friends, What should i do with the bumper? I personally love the fishing pole holders because I do fish.

Replacing random parts on hunches spurred from other vehicles and peoples experiences with them is the safest bet.

EDIT: i forgot about shipping. find me a place that sells all that stuff together and they've got my money.
The answer is Morris 4x4. Free shipping for orders over a grand, military, police, firefighter discounts, and no sales tax depending on the state u live in.

Hmmm... One post seems suspicious, especially since you can get free shipping at Qtec with no sales tax at any price. I think we have an employee here.

The answer is what I said... making your own kit. Zone's arms have a bushings and will fall apart.

Maintain, wheel, upgrade, repeat.
