that's awesome. Most people take the bumper end caps AKA milk jugs off anyways. I personally used a JK bumper, modified it to fit on mine.

Not sure on the DS issue, may want to check your motor mounts to maike sure they are intact.

My new jeep first time working on her

Well i just bought a new tj she is a 06 rubicon and well she had some stuff going on some rattle noises and well the ex owner was a very nasty owner and i mean nasty in the meaning that he didnt took care of her.
So i decided to make a nice cleaning day.
First because of the rattling noises well it it sounded like rock in the bumpers and well that was the noise xD

Also i notice a weird and loud clunk noise when the front suspension bottoms out and i discover that my front DS hits the exhaust. Please some one can give me an explanation to this problem.
I think i can fix it with a bump stop. Everything in the suspension looks ok.

And well some painting on the brake calipers i always wanted to do this I Know they are gonna get dirty soon but well i like them red. After that i removed the milk jugs to clean and paint them and what do i find? 2kg of rock in all 4 !!!.
Another thing i found tons of dust and rock and dry plants NEXT to the CAT that was a potential issue imagine dry stuff next to the hot cat that could catch on fire xS so i clean all that.

Finally the last problem my fog light didn't work so what i did was check the fuses (all ok) relay (ok) then i discover another aftermarket relay connected to the bat and to a long cable going to my fogs so my diagnostic was a bad connection so i removed all the after market cables and i replace my fog light bulbs with the original 55watts. Then i connected everything to the original system. And they worked =D

Also some sticker to personalize my jeep =D
I love her =D long life jeep long life jeepers
