Starting off the day after I bought her...

Mine doesn't have a name either. I just don't think it's earned it yet.

Oh, and good looking rig by the way. Love the orange.

haha yep this little guy was pulling the jeep...





So my tires rub on that plastic "skid" behind the front bumper at full turn. Can I just take this off?

I did. It increased my hood bounce when I did.

You could also trim it so that it doesn't rub if you wanted to keep it.

Yeah I might just trim it tonight

I will be getting a new bumper with a metal skid pretty soon.

The stubby skid from LOD won't rub will it?

Judging by his profile, I'm going to go out on a limb and say 15" steelies.

I'm feeling lucky....15x8 Cragar D window, perhaps?

When you buy a front bumper, buy a skid plate to go with it and dispose of the plastic air dam properly. That's a nice looking dog.

It looks like something is wrong with your allignment or something because your 35's look crooked from the front.

Too many mods to list. Too awesome to sell.
