I finally removed the silver plastic bits off the front & rear bumpers. It looks much better.

Unless your jeep is black or silver it doesn't really match anything

As you might recall... yesterday was the Warn Elite bumper... and today it got its companion, a Warn VR10000. Yea... I am cheap... but it should be enough to pull me out of the parking spaces at the Mall...

I had not removed front grill before, so it took about 35 mins - which included time to relocate top left grill mesh support bar. The bar was preventing grill fastener holes align to holes on Jeep front. Once I figured out problem it took about 10 mins to remove, adjust and remount. Mesh is heavy duty and fully powder coated.

Found snow. Found mud puddle. Look close- there is a Jeep there. The snow was pretty. The mud was FUN.

Prettied up my DIY spare tire spacers while installing the new CB. The Daystar ones we bought broke the first day. 1 1/2" PVC with cap inserted into the stock spacer. My spare is a 305/70/17 and only about half tread FYI. But its been bounced around on some very rocky trails at decent speed and they haven't budged. Should last until I can get a real tire carrier.

Bought it and drove it home from the dealer. I swore that I would never buy a vehicle near the end of the year due to having to pay personal property taxes on it for the entire year but the dealer said that they would knock an additional $300 off the FFP and so we closed the deal.

I must say, this thing is HUGE sitting in the garage. It didn't look all that big at the dealer when it was around dozens of other Wranglers but my goodness. The top of our Viper comes up to about the height of the door handle. My wife, who is a shade over 5'-0" tall, says she'll have to practice her technique of getting in and out of it. It's her Jeep.
