So the bumper arrived today and was slightly different then the picture but I actually like it a bit better. Should give me more room for the winch and the brush guard is thicker which I like.

Looks good man! Hope your keeping this jeep!

Is it me or is the 50" bar too wide for the JK roof? It looks spaced away from the passenger side A pillar?

Holy crap its been a while...
Well I got rid of the led bar due to it breaking....stupid limb..
and I got a winch finally...















Just ordered a new hook, d rings, and a fairlead licence plate mount
My girlfriend also told me that she's getting me a Warn premium winch hook as part of my birthday present so that will be awesome. Love the look of those.
Will have to get new cable sooner or later and might go synthetic.
Also getting new tires within the next month or so...have the money, but am trying to get this warranty thing 100% done first.

Once again I slacked off on the posts...
So here's what has changed...
The HID fog lights were moved for a bit and the completely removed now its all LED expect the headlights
My used winch broke and am getting a VR8000 fairly soon...don't know when.
I'm looking at rear bumpers and tire carriers. I will probably end up shelling out the $1800 for an ARB one and then getting the 35" spare.
And I picked up a hard top finally!






Here's my Flickr for those interested...
