So I think the "last" thing I'm going to do now, is some bumpers. I've strongly considered the Ace bumpers, but I'd really like a full width bumper upfront and I don't like how the rear bumper does meet up with the rear fender. So I'm looking at either the AEV or Expedition One stuff

The AEV Front bumper looks great, but I don't care how it comes in many pieces (I don't think it'd be that strong).

But the Expedition one stuff looks great and is a little cheaper (relatively) to AEV. What do you guys think?

Alright guys. Got the front bumper on. Man taking that vacuum pump bracket off was a pain in the ass! But I got it on and it looks great. Here's some pictures.

One more thing, the Fog Light plugs couldnt' reach the lamps' new location. Today I'm going to splice the wire solder and heat shrink it.

I just installed this bumper. The factory plugs will fit. You have to unwrap the factory loom and get enough length out of the passenger side for both sides to reach. Anyway...looks great. I love that color and obviously love the bumper too!

bump

Jeep looks awesome !! I was just wondering how the lift height held up after some time and the heavier bumpers? Did the spring settle a bit?

Good question and a 1 year bump.
