im glad i cut it b/c it looked goofy with it being so big in the first place... it will be like this for now until i get money for a heavy duty shorty front bumper..

hey Swing Fixer,

not to hijack this thread, but are you happy with that winch? I noticed you got the 10 not the 8... i'm debating between that and a Warn.

Rubber Rock Caps

The rubber rock caps someone asked about are available from Quadratec for about $100 front and rear. I just took mine off today to install a new bumper. I'm letting a friend of mine have them for $50.

Instead of those rubber bumper ends from quadratec, I was thinking of using these just to make it look a little more finished.

Put this hoop on and 10k hooks. Can't post pics, here's a link. Mines the first Jeep. BTW, this guy does nice work if you would like a sturdy hoop for your stock bumper. Five star!

Those are the stock bumper caps from 06' TJ's. I got them for free from a guy that put tube bumpers on his 06 X model. You can save yourself a couple bucks if you can find a set at the junk yard or know someone who is putting an after market bumper on their 06.

Here's my stock shorty bumper. I got the idea from this post. Got some help from a little Harbor Freight Grinder. I'm going to add a hoop or bolt on stinger.
