After two months of being on backorder...







Sorry for the large size. I finally got my AFW front bumper, installed it last night and mounted my Warn 9.5ti. I put the stock fog lights on there for now.
Pics also show the blacked out headlight bezels and clear turn indicators. I love how it looks; what do you all think?

Thanks for the positive comments!
Yeah, that's the only place for the lights. And as for the winch, I got it for $800 shipped from a JF member. This site is the best!

Finished!!

No not the Jeep that will never be done.

But I did finally complete the SYE and CV shaft and RE Front track bar.

Wow what a difference!!! No vibes at all and my steering is tight again. I did hit some bumps on purpose to see if I could instigate some DW but nope I couldn't

I f'd up the stock track bar and bent my skid to hell and also dented the stock drive shaft real good on the last rock run.



So all of this was to replace and repair the problems plus by getting my skid back up (it was dropped 1.5 inches) maybe I can avoid beating the hell outa it in the future.

Other than the stock fog lights on top, which I assume they are, you made a very good choice. Looks great!

I'm waiting to install everything based on help from a guy who has both the tools and the experience...else I'm going to have to go to a shop and let them do it.
