Default body armor, the grill anyway

all I did was the tube work, the owner built the bumper, which is nice by the way




and yes I know the chrome lights need to be moved, the owner can handle that I am sure, but thanks for pointing that out (inbeforesomebody)

I mocked it up on mine and liked it but it looked like it was smiling for some reason. Also I had that shape of hoop (the center part) on my other bumper and wanted it different this time. You should do it so you don't have to bend up a one piece grill/hood hoop. Get it done.

welll must report back on this setup!!! it did it's job. mike flipped his jeep backwards end for end and then on it's side sat night. was a hard roll from at least 20 foot strait back. cage and front stinger protected everything very good.( we even had to drag it down a hill to get it out of the tree's.) mikes hood is dented a little just because he landed in the tree's.but no front damage at all. this protection is one of the first things someone should do building a jeep.both driver and passenger didnt get a scratch!!

It looks like its built quite well, but I fail to see how it protected the occupents inside the jeep...
