Nice choice Don. Let me say from experience that you DO NOT need to remove the entire front panel off your jeep to install the light bar. It is a lot easier to install without your air dam on and I highly recommend taking it off before you start. It's a little tricky to see how the support brackets lock into the frame and mount to it in the instructions. Here's a pic of it installed to help.

Thanks man, this will help. I might hold of installing until I get lights, as it looks like I may have to Pre wire.

Not 100% necessary but MUCH easier to do while installing the light bar. You'll have to take it off and adjust if you mount your lights afterward.

I am after this (stubby, loop/lights)
This looks sweet, would a winch fit under the lights?

The lights will probably be a professional install to get the switch in the cab, I know I wont be comfortable doing anything with wiring, so I'll just install ithe loop and let the professionals deal with that. .

I'll take it to Jeff Daniels Jeep customs here in PA or take all of my mods to my mechanic and let him go to town.

Sorry to bring back an aging thread, but I thought this was on topic:

A couple of people I showed this mod to think I'm crazy for wanting to do something like that to a very new and expensive vehicle.
(They do not understand obviously.)
It's the same thing that makes me take the same vehicle for joyrides through the pine barrens! It's not about the expense: It's about it being my (CENSORED) Jeep!
Anyhoo, my nephew is getting a Jeep when he gets home from his service overseas and told me I could have HIS OEM front bumper, because HE gets the Jeep thing, and has already ordered aftermarket bumpers for his!

So, win win is what I'm saying. I can carve mine up and hang his like a trophy in the shed against "future need".

Agreed 100%. Get what ever you want on your Jeep and drive it the way you want, explore with it to the places you want, and continue to enjoy it the way you want.
