Ah, now I see where all the "jug" talk was coming from on the other thread.....

I left my jugs alone, I like them and the way they look. If they break off later, so be it. Haven't hit 'em with rocks yet though .......

Exclamation You made me look too...

In high scholl.... A LONG; LONG; TIME AGO....

My GF had a Tee-shirt and that is all it said "JUGS"

So I had to look at your post.

But when I read your post I knew what you were talking about.

I might just have to look her up the next time I find myself in Big D. I mean Dallas!

Now you need to give some thought to making the road trip to Texas for the Jeep Jamboree next March.

Hey, when you removed the jugs, what do the ends of the bumper look like ?

Are they hollow on the ends ?

This is actually a serious question.......I know, but it is.

I've been in sand quite a bit, and if the bumper is hollow all the way through I'll pick up quite a bit of debris.

It's hollow on a yj for sure. But the back is open, so I guess hollow is not the word. Sand is not near as much problem as MUD. The tires throw enough to fill it in nicely! Nothing that a high pressure car wash wand won't cure. Just like everything underneath.

I know, they're long gone. But I sure would like to find the metal endcaps for the bumper that I saw a while back and can't locate now.

Warn Bumpers

You can always get a set of HD Rock Crawler Bumpers from Warn.

They offer a lot more "Tub Protection" than you Jugs did.

Lifts are cool and look great but if were my Jeep and my money Body Armor would be first purchase.

I have been wheeling a long time and most my Amigos feel like I do.

But it is your Jeep and your money so you do what feels right for you. That is my $00.02

Really? Not clearance and tires? I've already had two flats on trails. Figured if I had to buy tires, I might as well lift it.

If you are getting new shoes anyway...

I can understand you getting a lift so you can get the wheels and tires to match your lift...

But the Tub is the most ecpensive part of your Jeep and needs the maximum protection.

I'm a big fan of heavy duty bumpers to keep you from getting too bangged up on the trail.

armor is a really good place to start because protection is important. however if your just doing some fields then you may not need armor yet.

It is a OXY-MORON........lol. If you are lifted, you don't tend to hit the side of your vehicle, or under parts, near as bad. Once you put on the 33"X12.5" tires, you don't hit much at all. With the right back spacing, your tires get all the abuse, on the trail, and that's the way I like it........lol. If you stay stock, you hit everything!!!!!!!!

Ok, got off of my lazy butt and checked, my front bumper is open at the back. What I was thinking of is when I got my Jeep, the guy I got it from traded bumpers because he had one custom made and it was square tubular, 1/4 " thick metal. He wanted to keep his custom bumper and winch, and I didn't mind because I couldn't afford to pay him for the extra parts, so my '98 TJ has a stock front bumper from an '03 TJ X, with jugs.

Tiny, If I remember correctly you were learning to weld. Bumpers would be a great project to practice your new welding skills. I will hopefully start on some for my junk early next year.

I am, my buddy's husband is going to teach me over christmas break. I'm not sure if I want my first welding project to be hangin' off the front of my baby. I usually take to stuff, but I have a feeling this isn't one of those easy skills like drywall or plumbing.

It's clay. I've been noodling around with making cookie molds, thought it would be fun but I'm still not happy with it. Something's missing.
