its easy to dismiss the ideas of a child, when you think you have looked at things from every angle and have applied your own experiences... but sometimes I am finding, inexperience and a fresh perspective can actually provide an excellent solution.

he's looking to go into engineering, so I think encouraging him and showing him the ropes in the garage and tools will be beneficial to both of us.

Not today but I recently cursed out the speed limiter on the factory lockers. Needed to spin the wheels when stuck on the lake ice fishing; every time I got moving it would stop again. Time for the bypass!

Ordered a full set of Metalcloak Duroflex control arms! Very excited to see how the do on the LJ. I'm sure I can expect only good things.

Can someone clue me in on what this front bumper is called? I can't seem to figure it out and just like the look of it.

I'm doing Duroflex CA's 2 at a time. Just don't want to drop the cash all at once. Hoping I see a big improvement over my rubicon express CA's.

Fabtech makes one that looks like that too. Saw one on CL the other day. Unsure if they still make them or not. Wortha shot. Maybe someone on ebay is selling an old trailgear or fabtech if it isnt made anymore.

There it is!! Also saw a jeepforum link about fabtech vs trailgear bumprr saying it was almost identical and its still being made so booyah!

Wow it's identical! Apparently the Trailgear ones could have been had for $80. The Fabtech is $382 for the exact same thing. Weird how that works huh?
