You should probably check to make sure they are still in place, but nope, it's all designed to be exposed to the elements anyway (it's under the vehicle). The mud around me is nasty clay mud, and sticks to everything. Anytime I go through it, I put the sprinkler under the front for about 4 hours, then move it farther back for another few hours. Definitely do it somewhere you don't mind a mess. Here's what I bought just for this.

that piece on the front bumper looks like the mount for a snow plow by Snow Sport .I was reading about it last winter . It has no hydraulics it was kind of unique how it worked but that piece on your bumper looks just like the mount they sold for a wrangler .

That's exactly it! Haven't used it yet because no snow in virginia, but I'll post a review after i use it. Hoping to make some money this winter plowing driveways.

Is it possible my Jeep has a very small body lift or suspension lift? Like a budget boost or something?

Looks stock height to me. Do you have any spacer looking things on top of your coils?

I'll check tomorrow and upload a picture (if I remember haha). I just pressure washed a little underneath (in the rain, which sucked), but don't remember seeing anything. I didn't really look though. Alright, it just looks a little taller than stock to me... not sure why.

Still need to see if it has spacers, but haven't had time to work on it lately. Can anyone tell me the size dimensions of my wheels?

And are the JKS discos the bolt-in or weld-in kind?

Thanks!

Definitely go with the sprinkler underneath for a while (park it in the grass to keep the driveway from getting all mucked up) and then pressure wash. You can also take the tires off to get a little better access to the coils and ends of the axles. Probably also wouldn't hurt to get some grease under the front end.

Also, I don't believe the phone/pen holder in the cup holder comes stock........
