I had a similar trade, a guy bought a new bumper therefore he wanted to get of his old one plus the winch plate, i went talked to him, noticed he didnt have any fogs, the bumper i really wanted didnt have a spot( i eventually made a spot).. so we traded. i ended up selling that bumper and winch plate for 250. used that to get my stinger and rocksliders. lol

Yea I know. The lights on the light bar/(future roof rack) are there cause I had them and it looked a little empty without them. I use the police spots more than anything. Oh... you should see when I put it in reverse. There are a lot of lights you can't even see, LOL!

We stuck playing cards between the flares and the body where the would fit, taped the rest, and used newspaper to mask off about a 18"-20" area around it. Then put an old towel over the tire.

So I just went for a longer ride since I got the new wheels and tires on and I must say there is defiantly a power loss, but not near as bad as some on here have said beings its a 4 banger. Anyway I'm loving the new look of the larger tires I'm happy with my purchase

Washing that "blue off" is a great feeling right? I noticed some change today as well, the jump to 33s from 30s didn't really feel much loss of pwr with 3.73 gears but going up an incline at hwy speeds, the trans kicked down all by itself on a road I drive 5 times a week. I don't remember it ever doing that at 60 mph before and was shocked... A gear swap at this point, after doing tires/wheels, suspension lift, complete currie steering upgrade all within 6 months, isn't in the near future... I'll deal... good luck w/your rig

Made some swaybar quick disconnect and welded a bracket to the frame so I had a place to secure the swaybar while offroading.

Just to let you know the clevis pins you are using are a bad idea. They will break. I highly suggest not doing the home made disconnects.

The red one? The air filter is now located under the cowl that goes between the hood and the windshield. The red tube routes air from that filter to the intake.

x2. Mine on the Pass. side bent and then snapped. Replaced with JKS Quicker Disco's. With those I was also able to adjust the sway bar to to it's recommended 5-10 degrees. Handles much better on the pavement now and no clunking sound I was getting from the home made Disco's.
