Do you have any more pictures of the rockers? I have MC Fronts and would like to see how you fit them because I like those a LOT but have hesitated because of the lack of anyone running them that I've seen.

The cut was easy just download the template form metal cloak and cut with a jigsaw. But heavy metal blades that work great. Only used one blade. When I cut my rivets out for the stock rockers I didn't cut enough of the rivet and then just pounded them out. Which causes little dimpled around all the rivet holes so I have a gap. Not to bad though.

So I think I'm gonna get a 50" led bar. I know I can get one cheap for $300 combo beam. I don't want to wast 200 on a mount. What do you guys think about mounting it straight thru the windshield frame. I can put two bolts through the top near the glass and I'll have access the nuts. And it should look clean. Options?

Well thanks to the ice storm in georgia, I slid out and bent a rear axle shaft in a curb. Well looks like I'm getting rear chromoly shafts.

Man, that sucks. I've kept an eye on the weather and they said a lot of states are getting a "winter storm of the century."

Anyways, your Jeep is nice! Keep up the good work!

So word from the shop is that I got alloy usa rear chromoly and due to the rcv install, they replaced the inner axle seals up front, and due to a good mix up I got some alloy outer axel tube seals for free. Should have the jeep beck tomorrow, and then it's off to Morris Mt. On the 15th.

Sounds custom. Smittybilt has its pros and cons.

I chose the "Pulling Hair" smiley and noticed the jacked purple faced licker in the post and the fact I can't edit my own post. Who can change that permission? Thanks!
