That's a hell of a lot of work. Looks like it's all going to be worth it in the long run. Good luck on the rest of the build.

Default WP Warrior bumper installed

So I wanted something for now just to hold me over untill I get a new bumper, so a guy had this bumper and was going to scrap it, I told him I'd take it just so I can have something a little stiffer up front then the stock bumper. Never really got a good look at it untill today. And realized it was a WP bumper that goes for $200+, so needless to say I got a great deal and she don't look half bad either. So I put it on tonight....










need to trim some of the fender flares, but had to cut the fenders up anyways so why not now....

Yea, I like that bumper. Nothing too fancy, but it looks like it will get the job done. Nice build!

Default Shocks on front now!

Well picked up some used shocks from MidMichxj, great guy there, but yeah so I cleaned them up some and got them on the jeep tonight. Ride is a lot better of course, now I don't have to worry to much about the DW, so I can take the highway again This be only temp until I get the steering made up and maybe I can hold out now to get me some piggyback shocks that I been looking at.

Hey, looking good man, I like it. I'm glad somebody finally got a lift on that beast, i'll miss it, had a lot of good times with it. let me know when you get 4x4 in it. Or next time you're up here we can find some time to wheel.

Default hitch I picked up and got on.

Just something to pull my trailer with and a tow point. Got it free from JEEPR which the receiver was rusted in drop side up so cut it off and had buddy tig weld it the right side down for me. Worked out pretty good.



Those pics were from JEEPR, the before pics.

Default Buddies and I went out on Sat

Buddy got stuck but nothing to bad just was going a little slow when he dropped in the hole. But it was a good time, my jeep rode good. No complaints but look forward to the different set of shocks I'm getting next week. Not to many of me being a quick run and I still got that weak steering yet.
