Cost on that bar is under $200 shipped. It's a great light bar, but not worth as much as a vehicle.

Traded wheels and tires today. Old on back, new on front in the pic. Went from 33/12.50's to 31/10.50s and lost 10 lbs at each corner. My 2.5 is much happier!

Any pictures from inside, did you just bolt through or put a backing plate?

Looks great

Time for some new CA's I think... Well good enough reason anyway.
How's your trackbar lookin? I'd address that first if it's the OEM unit...much cheaper than going for new arms. Unless of course you're just looking for an excuse

I will check that thanks, but if I come up with a good enough reason the boss will release the funds easier .....

OT: My rough country junk started making noise from the upper rears today. Trying to decide if I want Savvy or Metalcloak to replace. Double adjustable would be nice, but I like the idea of the Duroflex joints. But JJ are very proven...... Decisions, decisions.

Looks great
I used fender washers. I might have to step it up to flat stock plate though but that'll require new hardware. Maybe next summer when I paint the top

When I did the surco on my bronco, I got some thin aluminum stock from Lowe's, and used a solid piece for each side. I then drilled extra holes on each rail. Windshield sealant in each hole, silicon under the rail+ between the aluminum and fiberglass, then silicone all around the outside+bolt holes of the rail and aluminum. I had no leaks, and no problems with cracking. I was comfortable putting 125lbs plus the weight of the rack up there.

Do you have any pics of it on the jeep? I'm wanting to get a hartop and reuse my surco rack on it.

Today: I removed the cheap multiple hole trailer pin sway bar disco's. Got a hex head bolt the same size as the stock end link bolt, and a wing nut. Tightened everything, marked the bolt, drilled it out, and put a pin in to keep the wing nut from backing out. Guess what, my jeep is clunk free. Well for now...and the front feels a little tighter on the highway

No pics yet still waiting for the rain to start probably put it on next month. Wasn't the bronco hardtop steel?
