Yeah, the sunroof feature really didn't do anything for me. Being a bald man in Arizona, I need to keep my head covered!

I like that bumper and tire mount swing....It looks like the Body Armor one I've been looking at getting. Are you totally satisfied with it?

Yeah so far I love it. I haven't bashed it into anything yet so I can't comment on it's durability but it's solid and easy to use.

Drove to work, top up, 38 degrees when I left the house. Took off for lunch, grabbed some bread at the store and a 2 foot galvanized pipe at the hardware store across the parking lot. Went home, ate a couple ham and cheddar sammiches, then used the pipe to get the old bumper bolts off to mount the new cheapie stock type front bumper. Drove back to work and showed up only 5 minutes late.

No picks. It is a stock front bumper but it looks better than no bumper...

Should have it back tomorrow with a fresh set of spider gears and new clutches....I can't wait to have my jeep back and limited slip that works... While its been gone I've been stocking up on parts with the money I've been savings in gas. So bed line the finders, put on my rockrails and edge trail jammer kit and if I have enough after I pay the guy for the install order a winch not sure which 1 yet gota keep it under 600 tho. So that's my plans for tomorrow
