if you havent. invest in a welder and some spare metal. give some custom fab work a try and see what you can come up with. there are tons of DIY bumper threads on the internet nowadays. Is the one on criags list solid? or is it half plastic?....regardless, it still looks pretty clean. if its 550 for a half plastic bumper then id say there are better deals out there for solid steel ones. it would look good on your jeep though.

Its AEV I believe, which is all steel IIRC. Most expensive bumper pretty much. It would look good chopped as a stubby IMO. There is another deal that I might swoop on instead, but you will have to wait

Yeah I decided Im just going to run the sliders and the front bumper, and then sell the back bumper to a buddy of mine cause he wants it more than me. Pretty excited on it, hes also got brand new wheels and tires from the 10A but I dont need those.. Sure would be kick *** if I could swing them some how and buy some upgraded tires for them but theres a slim chance!

Got the sliders mounted along with the front bumper, installed in less than an hour.. Sold the rear bumper to my buddy so Ill have a different routine there. Love the look! Damn front bumper is stout too!

Also, need help hooking up the fogs. Ill have to add a different bulb harness connector or something. I think the fog bulbs are H11? Any input?

Yeah man no problem! Glad it worked out for the both of us

Ordered a set of Warn W350F Wireless lights to replace the fog lights in the 10A. Winter is coming up so I'm going to be needing some nice driving lights for going up to the mountain. Debating on putting an HID kit in there too, either 4500K or 3000k I like the yello fog look. The yellow output when I had my ZJ worked really well in the snow. Suggestions?

Hooked up the lights today since it was nice out. Had to make a little tab/bracket to hold the new warn lights in the stock fog light location. Took no more than a few hours for install. Having no switch is nice, but the wireless remote is pretty dull and you need to be pretty close to the sensor wire for them to turn on (which is under the hood ) but other than that they are way whiter and brighter than the stocks. Almost too bright, im going to use them often to see if people flash or not, its hard telling when your alone staring into them at night in the dark parking lot. They are a little brighter than the headlights, which are upgraded silverstar ultras. Overall, pleased. Only bummer is the remote. Could be stronger. Recommended though to anyone!

Heres just the fogs

Those look like they're throwing a proper fog pattern, so they shouldn't be blinding to other people. Correspondingly, running them with the high beams is counter-productive. It throws too much light too close and kills your distance vision. The bit of a hole in the high beam pattern is actually there for a purpose.

Oh ok perfect! I also took the covers off of them too cause I hardly got any light out of them. I would eventually like to get some driving lights when i get a hoop for the bumper, but these are very nice compared to what I had before. JK's dont have very good driving lights lol

Picked up some subs today for a good deal from a co-worker of mine. Sub, and soon to be wiring and amp all for 300. Good deal if you ask me. Later down the road will be speakers and maybe a new head unit, but this is all its lacking in my opinion



Also a shot of the lights



Where the remote is at easy access and where it also picks up a signal. Should have just gotten regular lights lol

Went wheeling this last weekend with my brother and both of our girlfriends up at browns camp. Didnt run many trails because they have a main trail closed for maintenance. Still was fun, pretty sloppy up there! Also let the girlfriend drive, she didnt do bad so I was happy

Minus the goofy face, she is pretty normal



Now this is me haha
