I'm looking for a new rear bumper.. I want to get one that has D Rings & a Hitch. Any suggestions? I have a bigger tire so it has to fit with that.. Right now I have this, I don't know what kind it is cause it came with the jeep when I brought it..

I have this bumper. Tire carrier, accessories and stuff from Tomken are good too. It's nice to be able to build on when funds become available.

I have the swing away gate from Body Armor 4X4. I love it.
It holds the 2 Jerry cans the tire and a high lift.

You get all excited when you have a passenger because now someone can adjust the passenger side mirror for you.

If the front are spinning = no traction. No traction = no steering. No steering = hang on and try to enjoy the ride.

Sometimes some things don't seem to make sense; like, a sliding tire travels faster than a rolling tire.

My 98 TJ was my every day driver til I found a 2000 VW Jetta TDi for a ridiculous $800 that runs excellent (buddy o mine gave me GREAT DEAL) and gets 38-40 city 45-50 hwy. Now my TJ is a weekend warrior. Makes a huge difference spending $30 every two weeks vs $90-$100. It was almost like getting raise at work.

I don't even use my passenger side mirrors when I'm by myself. They don't stay where they are supposed to be!

My thoughts on this were simply..."I have a passenger side mirror?"

When the only reason you wash it when it hasn't been muddying is when your wife says we are going into Seattle to the Tango Club. "We can take the jeep but, if I am getting into it in a dress it had better be freshly washed!"

A locked door in a jeep just invites someone to slash your windows. My wife keeps telling me to lock them, but I don't have anything of value inside to steal.

Most stupid crooks can't figure out that they can just unzip the windows for access.

.... Unless you have a hardtop and full doors, that is the only way I see the jeep being a little more secure. A little.

I've got the hard top and full doors, if I had the soft top I would be just like you. I don't really keep anything of value in there, just the faceplate to my stereo

I always lock my doors and I have a hard top. I also have an alarm and I don't keep anything valuable inside (except for recovery gear and what not in the trunk area). I'd rather have someone slash my windows than break my glove box/center console trying to get inside. But then again, I do need some new windows.

X2. I have a soft top and I would rather then just open the door. I lock my console and the back trunk door. I also have a iVault for my radio so I have a plate that I can put over my radio and lock as well. I don't keep anything valuable In mine either unless they decided to take off my seat covers

Just for everyone that thinks the lock on the center console and glove box are strong... They aren't, you can bust the center console by hand if you try hard enough, and the center console can be broken with a decent sized screw driver. So there is actually no reason to lock anything (with a soft top) because if something is locked in a criminals mind that means there is something of real value in there. My $0.02 is just leave everything unlocked except the tailgate, then if someone wants to look around they can look, possibly take change and then leave and nothing has been actually damaged. Ill take a picture of what I did with my faceplate before my underseat box. (Which I do lock because its crazy strong)

I feel like that was directed at me. If not, my bad. But I know it's not strong, at all! The lock on the console is secured to a piece of hard plastic and the glove box is just weak. I want a tuffy security glove box so bad, I would just rather spend the money else where right now

My suggestion: if you absolutely need to leave something, line a doggy poop bag with a brown rag and place the item in the brown rag. Tie the bag with a slip knot ( so you can use it later) and place the bag on the passenger or rear floor board.

That's why I just park on the front lawn when I wash mud or the undercarriage off. That way he doesn't get mad and I don't have to clean up the mud
