Where did you get that bumper from and how much was it?
Sorry for the late reply. I Just stumbled across your request. It's an LOD. I had them build it with be smaller hoop. I can't remember the exact price, but, they have a pretty good website.
WHEN IN DOUBT, GIVE IT MORE GAS!!! THEN PULL OUT THE CREDIT CARD!!!

Oscar Mike is radio shorthand for "On the move".
Using phonetic letters became more and more common shorthand as military radios became more commonly encrypted. For example, in the cold war days, we were forced to use more complex numbered codes over open radio transmissions to indicate the fact that you were moving, or continuing the mission or had accounted for all your stuff.
But those coded open reports dropped off rapidly in the early 90s, and radio slang from the Vietnam era came back. (Tango for target. Oscar Mike for on the move. Charlie Mike for continuing mission. Etc.)
(At least that was my experience over the years in the Army)
Jeep honored the phrase by making some special edition Jeeps, Oscar Mike and Freedom. They're nice option packages. Other than that, I don't know what else they include.
Just another Billet Silver Metallic. It blends.
2013 | JK | 23R | 2"M | 33s on 15s |
I've updated my JK over the last year and a half. Did a decent amount of front-end work. Replaced Rubi D44 with PR44/RCVs/Reids/Dynatrac ball joints/ARB locker. Replaced stock tie rod and drag link with Polyperformance ones. Replaced Toyo 34s with KM2 37s and now Toyo 37s. Replaced black alloy wheels with Black Rock Viper tungsten alloys. Replaced Poison Spyder rear bumper/tire carrier with Genright tire carrier and a first gen Poison Spyder bumper. Regeared from 4.10 to 5.13. Replaced rock rails with Poison Spyder brawler rockers. Replaced rear axle shafts with RCV chromoly shafts. Added an AEV snorkel. Put on a Fox steering stabilizer to replace the Bilstein one I snapped on a rock. Replaced control arms with a set of 8 Metal Cloak ones. In a few weeks, replacing my Teraflex springs/shocks with RockCrawler 3.5" coils and AEV Bilstein reservoir shocks. Here are some pics from a run last fall when I almost rolled and a few from a snow run about 6 weeks ago.
That is a crazy pic! Never seen a front end like that on a jeep either. What kind is it?
I customized the grill and hood on my 09 JKU so as to resemble a Willys Wagon. It's the first JK Willys ergo Jillys. It's in Readers Rides of this Month's issue of JP Magazine. For more pics, google "Jillys Jeep"
I have 33x12.50/15 Duratracs on 15x8 Pro Comp Rock Crawlers (3.75" BS).
Those are sitting on a 2.5" Pro Comp lift with ES9000 shocks.
I also threw on a Rubicon Express adjustable front track bar for good measure.
