Could just be the pic or could be that the leafs need to break in

It sits way more level then it did with the aal's. Pretty damn close, may be a smidge higher in the rear, but I think once broke in it will be about as close to perfect as it can get.

Thanks for all your help and use of the barn and tools again Scott!

Hey Becky, did you grab those rock guards from Nates? They look very similar, although I think the locating strip for the rocker seam is much closer to the square stock.

Good Luck with the build!

P.S. We haven't actually met, but yourself and the yellow Exo-Cage Cherokee shot past us first weekend in November as we were plotting our way up the tire wall at Rocks and Valleys. Helluva rig you got there. We aren't generally to fond of complete and total humiliation, but we all agreed that we weren't worthy and got over it. Hopefully we will see you back up there one of these weekends once I get my Xj back together again.

No intention on humiliation......I do believe someone in your crew pointed us that way...so we went! I'm sure i will be there again.....make sure you guys get up to Blessing weekend...always fun

Sold the front bumper, so now here she sits until we decide which winch bumper we like.



She likes this one...

This is the one i'd like to see on there. She likes it too.......trying to explain "overkill" on a dd/weekend trail rig to an 18 year old can be like talking to a wall. We'll see what kind of feedback her friends give her, she has pics of both on her phone. I have an 8" rigid lightbar to go on it as well since I upgraded the one on my rig. Just need the winch later down the road.
