I just went with what the local parts store had. Murry is the brand $159 with a warranty and it fit just fine. Everyone seems to have opposing opinions on aluminum versus the composite versions for a Jeep. I would spend the money on a Be cool or flexalite but I have bigger plans for the engine bay eventually and I will upgrade then.
My Chinese counterfeit Old Man Emu sticker arrived to join my small but growing cluster of up upgrade stickers.
The funny thing, other than there being a counterfeit OME sticker, is that rather than the sticker being the usual screen print, this one is built up out of four layers of plastic film (reflective yellow, white, red, & black) and each layer appears to have been hand cut. It's really quite charming and wonderful. I enjoy bizarre things like this and was excited that this is what what I ended up getting. Thankfully my springs and shocks are the real deal!
Spent the last 2 1/2 days playing in our winter wonderland here in Indiana. It has been the first time since I purchased my (new to me and nearly all original) 97 TJ in late December, that I really got to check her out. DEEP snow drifts and uncut trails. Even had to put her in low and let her walk out of a drift or 2. Two nights ago I blazed some trails(really 2 lane highways blown over to 1/2 lane highways and unplowed county roads) in blizzard like conditions. Except for the fact that my wipers would freeze over with snow and ice(had to stop a few times and clean them off) she ROCKED it. Can not wait for spring and starting my build!!!
