Got my Barricade front bumper today from UPS. I broke the nuts and bolts on the OEM bumper and sat back and watched my 12 year old take the old bumper off. So technically I did nothing to my JK today, but the bumper is off. He lost a little skin on his knuckles and hit his head twice, but it was great to watch.

I completely plan on watching him put the new bumper on tomorrow. It's like free labor, I love it!

You bet. This is the third Rampage frameless soft top I've installed on a Jeep (first on a JK) and I've always been happy with the fit and finish.

Looks beautiful. I keep hoping for a (very) isolated hail storm directly over my stock hood so I can get an AEV HR hood!

This forum is sure helpful in all ways.

What tires to buy?

What winch should I get?

Does my wife know that I want new seat covers? (Apparently)

I'm 6'2" so maybe that's the difference?

How far back did you adjust it? I found it to be the most comfortable when it was basically lined up with the brake pedal.

Train up the child in the way he should grow and when he is old he will not depart from it. I hope you're happy that you've created a monster LOL. Of course when he gets his Jeep he's going to have to out do yours. A viscous cycle I tell you.

Do you have a lock pick to make the camerawork?

Both bought to a Fab here in italy, as well as most of the rest, the mount has been designed to protect from tree branches and to be cleaned easily when you mud.

not the best website, but they are really handy, they have good prices, and they speak english. :-)

Left my 07 JKU in Florida


And am driving my brothers 14 jk sport while I'm up in NJ.

I'm a little jealous of the new engine.

Sounds good. Incompetence loves company. I am actually a pretty smart guy. However, put a tool in my hands and I swear I lose 50 IQ points.

Strapped back the spiderweb shade since its not very hot out right now...

Loaded up the underside of the console lid with a pen, tire gauge and travel pack of tissues...

And "installed" a bed/trunk light.
