I like that front bumper. Nice, clean, not too big, not too small.

Hey Matt. Did you buy those wheels like that or did you coat them? They look great and I like that bumper too.

Bought them like that, from Pro Comp. Bumper is Pro Comp too. Wait till ya see the Poison Spider rock sliders I got. They were on backorder, so they will be here next week sometime.

Also, got my swing out tire carrier built tonight. Just gotta button it up in the morning, then I'll take some pics. My spare looks awesome hanging on it! Love it!

Thanks! I got a special surprise in the works for the rear bumper, an idea that just hit me last night. Once I get it done tomorrow, I'll post up some pics.

Got my other fender done and installed today. Still working on the spare tire carrier. And here's the unique thing about my rear bumper, it now doubles as an air tank!

I got these DIY rock sliders from Poison Spyder, but not sure how I want to mount them. I guess the easiest would be to weld them to some angle then bolt it through the tub, but I'm not a big fan of drilling holes in my newly painted tub! Anyone have another suggestion?

If it were me I would get some bar stock or some tubing and mount it directly to the frame with it tucked up tight to the body.

I agree too. I may figure something out that uses the body mount bolt locations. We'll see.....Can't wait to get them on!

We'll be ready to take them on a nice cruise up through the mountains in no time.
I've been wanting to take a trip up to the cabin soon. When I do, I'll swing through with the visors.

Started off Saturday morning with the goal of getting the Jeep painted finally. I just got done masking off the tub when a friend showed up with this. Needless to say, that halted production for the day! Spent Sunday recovering, so no Jeep work got done at all!
