plus free shipping from Amazon...
gotta love having (and using) an Amazon credit card. 10% cash back on every dollar you spend at amazon, 3% everywhere else. I schedule bill pay on it and that counts too. So I ended up paying next to nothing out of pocket for the bumper assembly.
It's the Rampage 76610 w/ swing out tire mount

Amazon.com: Rampage 76610 Rear Recovery Bumper with Swing Away Tire Mount: Automotive

I'll post a thread about the install here in a couple of weeks, it's advertised as "powder coated" but it's really almost like plastic dip, it's too shiny-smooth textured and already had some gouges from shipping, so it's gonna get the raptor treatment before it gets bolted on. Seeing as how it listed for anywhere from $480-650, I'd say I got a good deal?

Most likely 4.10s. I'm running 1 3/4 wheel spacers now and the 9" is like 64" so it wont b too much wider than what it is now. Probably fix that with back spacing on new rims

Hey, how have you been?
Jeep is topless and doorless and I had a guy on a Harley ask me "aren't you too hot with no top or doors?"

We need to all get some grub sometime soon.

All this heat is making my jeep vapor lock. it looses fuel pressure when it gets really hot just got my rc 1.25" bl and mml from ups yesterday. I think when I can afford new tires I'll get a 2" bb and put 33s on it. Hopefully a ucf high clearance skid is in the near future also. So many parts, not enough work to fund projects oh well. Any cool wheeling stories from anyone? I made it all the way across the rock crawling coarse at 4 wheel parts on east Washington street the other day on 31s and open diffs. Excited about that

They take you on the purgatory back run I believe and I've heard its a monster.

yeah a wee bit hot lately - lol. We had 103 in the shade here, and made the mistake of taking the jeep out for a stroll in this weather. Well no AC, top off, and having no heat barrier on the floor made for a "delightful trip" - lol.

On a jeep note - did get me a new t-case with 4:1, AA SYE, and novak shifter

I'm doing great. Long days at work lately. Took the jeep to redbird a week ago. Had never tried trail 4 before and know why. I need a tummy tuck and 35s. The wife was even tired if dragging the belly on everything. She told me to buy a new skid until she asked how much. Guess I should have lied. Great trail though so far...

Would love to get some grub sometime after end of july also.
My father and I also get to drive around the brickyard AUGUST 1st. Just some awesome info.
