All right. I've got the new bumper on, now should I mount the fog lights where they are supposed to go? Or where the winch would mount? I think they look better where the winch is supposed to go.. I won't be adding a winch btw.

Cool Jeep. It will be nice with the upgrades you are doing. Just to put my two cents in- I put the BestTop seat covers on. They are vinyl but are waterproof, comfortable, and make the jeep look real nice. Seats and Seat Covers

There's the finished product for the front bumper, I want to paint my running boards. They're made of fiberglass.. Would krypton fusion hold up well? Or should I jus bedline it? I'd rather not bedline because nothing else is bedlined on the jeep and I don't want it to be the odd color out.

They also do breathe at all, so get ready for major back sweat on hot some days

I would just fusion them. That's what I did with the jeep I just sold. They looked great. Just sand em down with 220, 500, 700 ish then paint.

It would have been cool to just put my 5.3 build into this thread.

I actually don't know. It came on the jeep my dad purchased and he gave it to me. I'll try to do some research to find it.

Edit: bulldog stubby front bumper.
