I am also digging your jerry can holders, you have pics of the mounts?
Have you had any issues with your ECU/computer in your 97?

Bought these....

http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll...d=396067275026

And made these....

3/4" OD stainless steel round tubing....bent on at 90 deg...



I had the body brackets already on the jeep....and it came with the bushings....that just happened to fit.... I made and welded the tab on the locking collar.



Then I ran it over about 20 miles of dirt raod just to make sure they didn't move....

Dug up some bumper pads for the front bumper.....few ideas rolling around....



And got a set of brand new Body Armor doors and handles....swapped for an old bolt in trunk I wasn't using....



So the winch is ordered...11k lb Qtech.....the bumper will have the mounting plate incorporated in the design. I know I want a forward facing receiver hitch....maybe one on either side to use as jack points. Bumper pads may mount vert or horizontal....dunno. I have some material to choose from for the bumper body itself.

The mind can be a scary thing....

You have one sick Jeep! It's one of a kind and looks just downright awesome. I hope to see some photos of it tackling some trails in the future
