Pulled the old dented and dinged oem bumpers off my new to me Sahara unlimited and replaced with a set I found on craigslist for a hundred bucks. Seems the previous owner thought bumpers were used to push stuff and to feel your way into the parking spot at the mall!

Not bad for now.

Bigger\ better bumpers when I have more time and money to play.

$100 is a good price but plenty of JK owners give them away for free.

Been neglecting the JK to play with guns lately, but spent yesterday installing the Mopar floor liner as a filler until I get a clear week to strip and apply bedliner. Maybe in ten years when the kids are grown...

(Got sick of having no carpet at all, and the liner was a decent compromise IMO. I thought it would suck, but actually fit pretty nice and looks good and durable)

Also reran some power lines (like on the CB) direct to the battery. And then this morning my OR-Fab tire carrier showed up...

Looks like now I got me some AEV corners to grind in prep for a new install thread!

If you do some wheelin' which requires rocks or odd departure angles. It is very easy to hit the EVAP canister...From what I've heard from the people who break it. It's a ***** to replace... It's best to get a skid for it or get the Woods EVAP relocation kit (best idea).

Poor engineering on that one! thanks for the heads up and tips! It will be a little while before I hit any serious wheeling. in the middle of a move and saving up for wheels tires and regearing.

I have been lucky so far and not screwed mine up (KNOCK ON MY PINEWOOD TABLE).

Cheers MATE! I can't wait to see the lift and tires!! I LOVE seeing new rigs with new shoes!

It's fun and a superior feeling huh? Knowing you can traverse the most severe conditions with ease.

It takes SO much effort me to even get loose with my 2dr in rain, snow, ice...well except for mud (my fav)

Yes. First Jeep for me and I'm really enjoying the feeling. Have yet to hit the mud, but will at first opportunity.

Good to hear brother! When you get into the mud (REAL mud) it's a love/hate relationship. You WILL have fun, but then the real fun(hate sometimes) begins when you get stuck! AND YOU WILL!

Mud is the only place I have been stuck!

That's exactly what I was doing 2 weeks ago (driving through tons of snow)! Loved every minute of it!
