Factory bumpers are sitting on a shelf in my garage. The side steps I shipped to a WF member in California. The soft top and hardware are in a spare bedroom closet.

The bumpers I'll probably give or sell to some local Jeeper who wants em. Maybe. Who knows?

The soft top is my OE softy. I bought an ORH fastback soft top that's on my Jeep now, but plan on keeping the original in case some retard slices up my rear window or something while trying to steal some pocket change.

U had to ask!

Replaced both stock plastic bumpers w/Rampage Recovery Bumpers! Then replaced tires/wheels (all 5) with larger units

Then after removing the spare, realized just how much the new tire/wheel weighed So I sold my new R-bumper and ordered a new "LoD" Full width R-bumper w/a tire swing, to get the weight of the new spare off my tail-gate

The new rear LoD bumper is American made, cut-outs for lights, tire-swing, receiver-hitch and I can add: rack over the Spare, of Jerry cans or Roto-packs or Hi-lift Jack

Stock side rails: still gotem

Top: I am 100% hard-top

That's what I need to do. I've been thinking about an attic parts-consolidation project.

I gave my front bumper to a gal who put a big dent in hers somehow. Now she wants me to put it on some time. Only problem she is 300 miles away. It is laying in her garage right where I left it!

I gave away my bumpers to friends that dented their's. I still have my OE rock rails after I replaced them with the Enhanced rails. I gave my tires to a fellow Jeeper who need them. Every thing else is in my "junk" room.

I'll be removing roughly a foot or so off of each end of my stock bumper and capping the ends off in a modification known as "stubby-ing" or "stubbification".

The cut ends will be either be put in the trash or integrated into our backyard garden somehow.
