LOL, that's what I said too... but wait till he gets his "mean Jeep" eyebrows and big orange teeth, then he'll be the big mean looking Jeep. It will look like a sadistic grin instead of a friendly smile - I HOPE!!

It will be interesting when I pull up nice and close behind the ricers and let Ajax glare and snarl at them through their rear window.

That looks great Kate! He does good work. I'd be interested to know how much more the front end sags after the winch is on. I'm getting the Rokmen Mercenary and Superwinch EPi9.0S and figure it will sag only about 1/8 - 1/4" since it only adds about 120# to the stock bumper set up with no winch.

Gus,
as it stands RIGHT NOW, it only weighs about 30 lbs more than what was on there before.

Once we put the stinger on it, it may change things a bit but overall it hopefully won't be a problem. I don't have measurements on the before & after. If I think of it, when we take it back off to finish it up I'll try to get you some.

Thanks everyone!
I was going to have a stinger built for it, but just spent my stinger money on a full set of Johnny Joints for my CAs. I am sick to death of blowing out bushings. Man, those little sonsaguns are 'spensive!

Then, I am going to get soem Metalcloak tubes. Oh yea - that will make miss Katie a VERY happy girl!!! Ajax will be so sexy that even I won't be able to stand him.

Thanks Cavey, I think he's a keeper.
Not only for his mad skills, but because he's the only man on the face of the earth who could put up with me

Wife saw your new bumper and ask when I was going to build her one. Tell OBM thanks alot! LOL Guess I better explain to her the way things work around here again and just who is in charge! In other words I better get to work with a "Yes Dear" and a smile on my face. It really is a great looking piece of equipment.

It's a CARR rota light bar.
BUT
let me strongly suggest against putting on a light bar.
They hang up on branches, create a lot of wind noise and they are really only good for setting up camp and chopping firewood. They are useless for night driving because they cause WAY too much hood glare.

Of all the mods I nave done to my Jeep, this is the one I like the least, and it was the first.
The way this mounts is by drilling huge holes in your windshield pillar, then they have some FUNKY molly type bolts that hold it on. Yea - it's a great bar but the mounting system is poo poo.

That looks great Kate & the stinger is going to be even better b/c sometimes the shorty's look a little bare & it will ad protection for the grille. I like it a lot, tell Hub's he gets 10 points from me!

+1

Also Julie, you get 1,000 points from me (useless) for spelling "a lot" correctly.

Thanks everyone. I will tell OBM.
The stinger is put off now because I have deprioritized it for a cage and some MetalCloaks
Now, can someone come and help me get these windshield trim panels to work with my cage?
