everyone says the 08+ look weird without it but i took my damn thing off and i love it!
I like the way it looks without it, also. But it's a 1-2 MPG difference when I take it off.

Since it's so easy to take off and put back on. I leave it on for daily driving and take it off whenever i take it out.

I've got an 05 so my air dam is a bit different. I hated the look of it on, but wasn't real crazy about the look of it off, so I cut a couple inches off the bottom of mine and I love the way it looks now.

Thanks for the heads up...might look into a new replacement one then for when I am not wheeling...I hung it up when wheeling and broke several mounting points on the 'cover'. The internal part is still good, the twist lock pin things are all still good. I am to understand the airdam its self is not too expensive....

I'm thinking I'll probably get myself some of the monroe load leveling shocks as well. Putting my hitch on some time in the near future and I think sag looks horrible. Not sure if you have a lift or plan on ever lifting but to fit a 265 70 or 255 70 spare in the stock location you have to modify the hitch a little. I plan on doing this before I put it on to make it easier/quicker.

Haha! I love to tease!

Well I hope it Holds up to your anticipation...

This past weekend I scored a Rigid Industries 20" light bar off craigslist. I have been wanting one for some time now and I have been curious to know if I could get one to easily fit inside of the 4xGuard Matrix. Before I did my hidden winch I figured I could fit it just underneath the crossbar (where my fairlead is now). Obviously that wouldn't work now! So my next thought was to modify the crossbar by cutting out enough space to sink the light inside of it. After measuring I realized that it was going to be a very tight fit! And now I am glad I didn't shorten the crossbar after my winch plate build to make more fairlead room like I have been think. Well without any more delay, here she is...











As I said above, it is a very tight fit! I didn't want to sacrifice my approach angle by extending the Matrix out away from the bumper anymore than it already was. So the back of the light bar it touching the bumper cover. The front of the light stick out slightly as well. I originally wanted it flush with the crossbar because I thought it would look better, but because of room I made it stick out slightly. Though this does make it possible to snap a cover or filter over the lights. If it was flush I would have had to cut the crossbar hole a little wider to fit a cover on. So in the end I am happy with it! I am still not sure if the front of my Jeep is starting to get a little too visually crowded?
