Yikes! Honestly I'd **** bricks if I tore into my WK like that.
LOL - If you look close enough, there are some "field expedient" zip ties holding the bumper up.

S*****g bricks would have been ideal, but my kiddo was in the Jeep with me. Honestly, you should've seen the looks on the faces of all the people at the water park we went to after this - we role in with Muddy/Mangled Jeep and packed up from Camping - The "gasp" faces were plenty.

Ran over some irrigation pivot parts in the deep grass and sliced my washer reservoir open. Swapped out a new one last night.

The new one looks bigger or is it just deceiving based upon not being side by side? How hard was it to remove and install the new reservoir (what needed to come out to get it out and in)?

I would say it appears that way due to the new one being so fresh and clean.

Six plastic rivets for the grill and its out. Just pop the centers out. Should've removed the drivers side tire but I just turned the wheel. Unscrewed the wheel well cover along the bumper and unscrewed the top of the bumper at the fender and popped another rivet further inside. From there I used a really long extention to get the rear bolt and reached inside for the front. Pulled the hoses from the pump and unplugged that and the low level float. Pulled it down and out. Swapped the float and the pump. Hardest part was snaking the new one back up by myself. Took two hours with a couple of breaks. I just took my time and it was hot.

I run OME HD with 265/70/17 and have pinch weld done running Goodyear Duratracks and I rub in the back slightly. I wanted the same size tire you have now but I don't know how the heck it would fit. Looks great though!
