Body Armor bumpers I think. Jeep looks sweet, but maybe you should try to get it muddy sometime! LOL, that license plate is FN hilarious!

Thanks guys! I'm from Topeka. The pandora radio is sweet! You just gotta have 3G service, but otherwise it's awesome

I'm looking for suggestions on future mods, I was thinking a new tire carrier, or possibly linex-ing the sliders and bumpers and in the tub.. Ultimately I'm going to do the chevy 6.0 conversion...

I would bet you could add a tire carrier from Body Armor to your existing bumper. That would look pretty good and will save your tailgate from the weight of the spare.

I'm not rich by any means... Just single. Although the way the ladies have been scoping out the jeep on campus, who knows how long my freedom will last.....

I do like that carrier! How would it mount to my bumper tho. Would it require welding on brackets and drilling. I'm fairly sure I don't have any existing holes or means to mount it... Thanks!

Haha, well compared to me, you are. 17 with no job doesnt result in much income. I bought my jeep and everything now myself, and that wiped me out. but summers around the corner!

I checked their website and the two rear bumpers offered are the standard which I guess you have and one with a swing arm post attached to it. I would contact them by phone to see if they sell the swingarm kit separately. My Big Daddy OR bumper has the holes pre-drilled and they offer the carrier separately. Sorry that I couldn't be of more help.

Haha Im sure that will be on my list this summer, im ordering my lift tonight/this week... but Ill suck it up for a while. I would have a job now but honestly dont have time for one, I would have to either quit track or something else... I barely have time for my jeep as it is so, well wait a few months. haha

You'll get there! I caught the mod bug a few years ago when I had my 04 cobra. It's been down hill since then!!!

Just putting up a pic of the hella 500ff lights w/ the 55w HID conversions. Also have 35w HIDs in my kc headlamps. It's like having the sun mounted on the front of the jeep! Offroading at night is pretty cool w/ these!
