I finally got around to doing the rear bumper today. A section of 2x4x3/16, reciever hitch from TSC, a 2" strip of 3/16, and some grade 8 harware is what it took. I painted it with rattle can bedliner.

Got the front bumper done today. I gotta order some shackle mounts and burn em in but at least I have a bumper. I can just loop the strap around it anyways.

More like the whole jeep. I got some other things to do first and I also gotta wait for some nice weather. I'm going out this weekend too so no paint yet. Eventually I'll have this thing to where I want it but for now I gotta make compromises so I can wheel.

I finally did the tummy tuck. I also did a engine/tranny skid that bolts to it. Full protection now. I made some frame sliders to protect the front driveshaft a bit but the paint's drying now so no pics.

Frame slider. The hole on the side is for access to the front bolt. It hangs down ~5mm past the driveshaft. Hopefully it will provide some protection.



Savvy steering mostly in. Just need to put the steering stabilizer in.


Much beefier than stock.

did you spray this on the tires for performance or cosmetic purposes? if it is performance, what does it enhance?

I bought some spray on rubber coating earlier today to coat the rims. I put 2 coats on a section of the rim to see if it will hold up tomorrow. I know a kid who drives a Civic and did this and came out really good. I wonder how many weird looks I'm going to get tomorrow.

Thanks. I have fun doing this stuff so the amount of time I have into it doesn't matter that much to me. It would be interesting to know how many hours I have into this things though.

Yep the plasti-dip was for looks only. I think I got at least 5hp from it though.

Also mounted a 2.5lb fire extinguisher on the back of the driver side B pillar. I would like to add a few more though as a 2.5 isn't very big. This isn't something to skimp on as I've been witness to a few vehicle fires and a buddy almost lost his cherokee the other day to bad winch wiring.

Outcruzin: My first step was to make the mounting points for the tub and the grille. From there I tacked the tubes in place until I got the desired look. I did the longest piece first that mounted to the tub side mount, then the piece that mounts to the grille mount, then the piece in between. After that the bar that runs down at an angle, and the mounting for that into the tube side mount. Then I did the sheetmetal top and inner fenderwell. Hope that makes sense.

It's been a while since my last update so I'll post some current pics up later when I get some more time.

Been working on the tub lately. Sandblasted the bottom of it and have 1 coat of primer on it as of now. I am going to lay down another coat of that then roll on some black monstaliner. I used a 2 part epoxy primer from a local paint shop. The body mounts were all solid and there was only minor surface rust around most of the spotwelds.

Some wheeling.



Antirock


Sandblasted and primed.




I'm getting tired of looking at this every time I walk in my garage. Hopefully there's some good weather soon so I can get this thing finished. Well at least closer to finished.

Wow man, great to see this kind of resourcefulness and awesome result. Looking forward to seeing how she looks painted up. I was going to say in the end, but as you know better than anyone now, there's never an end. Looks sweet and bulletproof.

Just read through your thread and all I can say is that I wish I had half your motivation. Keep up the good work

Thanks for the kind words. Lol I don't think this thing will ever be finished, I really want it to be driveable though. Put 2 coats of monstaliner on the bottom of the tub today. It took a little less than 1 gallon.

This is an awesome thread!! Pretty much everything you have done is way above and beyond my skill level. Makes me wish I had more ability and time to so stuff like this. I was proud of myself for just changing my diff fluid.

Hello?

Would love to see some updates and see how the paint job looks. It was kinda anticlimactic reading through the thread on my phone and ending with the tub laying in the yard.

I've got an 01 Yellow TJ, so I liked the way yours looked with the Rampage Bowless top. How well has it held up, and how does it work in the snow? I'm in Tahoe about to go through my first winter without a hardtop, and I think I want the Rampage.

Would love to see some after pics
