How do you like your ORFab bumper? I am looking at getting one myself and ditching the knockoff s&^ttybilt one I have.
I love the stinger. Actually quite proud of it. I rolled my jeep a month ago and the entire weight of the jeep came down hard on the hoop. It protected my engine completely. Stinger still looks just as good as when I bought it (minus paint scratches of course)
The one complaint I have is the mounting holes didn't line up 100% I had to slot the holes a good 1/4" on one side of the bumper. That was a huge pain in the butt
Finally put the full soft top back on....Sick of it filling up with leaves! Drove it to work today too....trying to back off of mileage on my car as it is close to the end of the factory warranty and, thought I have CPO warranty kicking in, I need to decide on extending the factory before it expires...1500 miles until I need to decide, and I do about 500-600 per week...
Had to torch off my dropped pitman arm and put on new stock pitman, an fixed my flex joint got it down to oooone clunk!!! and it's prob an in tightened bolt from when I did the alinement but it's a good day my friends

I mounted a rack on top my tj today, built it last week. made of two Harbor freight ATV racks welded together. Laid out a total of $90.00 for it and spent a few hours tinkering to get it together. I also mount bracket to hold the HI-lift. it is pretty solid. crawed on top and it took my 200 lbs standing on it.
I used a ford roof rack for the base. I think it was an expedition or smaller version.
With 20 years in the US Navy, and nine+ years underwater on Nuc Subs.
Today I finally fixed my starting issue. Anyone want to guess...?
Yep the starter. Even though it was testing fine.

Just a heads up: the dealership told me that the battery cables were discontinued and didn't have any in stock. the only option for my 2000 TJ was to build my own.
It wasn't too bad. The only kind of weird spot is there is a positive lead that goes to the fuse box that has a unique connection. It is L shaped and connects to two posts. I was unable to salvage this part to reuse. So I had to improvise.

I had the exact same thing happen to me. Apparently starters are notorious for this. IIRC the test only tests to see if the solenoid does its job, which doesn't equate to a starter actually working correctly.
