ESP Agreed 100%. Get what ever you want on your Jeep and drive it the way you want, explore with it to the places you want, and continue to enjoy it the way you want.

strider_mt2k Sorry to bring back an aging thread, but I thought this was on topic:

A couple of people I showed this mod to think I'm crazy for wanting to do something like that to a very new and expensive vehicle.
(They do not understand obviously.)
It's the same thing that makes me take the same vehicle for joyrides through the pine barrens! It's not about the expense: It's about it being my (CENSORED) Jeep!
Anyhoo, my nephew is getting a Jeep when he gets home from his service overseas and told me I could have HIS OEM front bumper, because HE gets the Jeep thing, and has already ordered aftermarket bumpers for his!

So, win win is what I'm saying. I can carve mine up and hang his like a trophy in the shed against "future need".

kjeeper10 Any work down in NC? .... I'm serious
09-21-2011 08:55 PM
DonC72 I'll take it to Jeff Daniels Jeep customs here in PA or take all of my mods to my mechanic and let him go to town.

If you were nearby to NC DJstorm on on the forums here could do that no problem. He's our engineering and electrical/fuse/switch guy guro.

I am after this (stubby, loop/lights)
This looks sweet, would a winch fit under the lights?

Not 100% necessary but MUCH easier to do while installing the light bar. You'll have to take it off and adjust if you mount your lights afterward.

Nice choice Don. Let me say from experience that you DO NOT need to remove the entire front panel off your jeep to install the light bar. It is a lot easier to install without your air dam on and I highly recommend taking it off before you start. It's a little tricky to see how the support brackets lock into the frame and mount to it in the instructions. Here's a pic of it installed to help.

DonC72 Thanks! I hope to have pics after I am sure I struggle with the bolt on instructions!

kjeeper10 I saw a complete loop w/ lights on EBay.
Not sure on the make(s) but it looked great, and was a decent price.

Edit: here's the title, don't know why It did not copy as a URL ??

Wrangler JK Front Bumper Light Bar Kit Slim Fog Lights

ESP Yes. It's called the off camber fabrications front light bar mount by MBRP.
09-21-2011 12:27 PM
DonC72 Is that the MBRP ? that looks nice and simple.

It looked ok

strider_mt2k It's certainly inexpensive, and it looks great!

I think I might be in after the newness wears off.

Removing the jugs was similar IMO

MTH Yep, like ESP, I can't imagine going back to my stock bumper after doing this. I like the look so much better, plus I don't have to deal with the weight of an aftermarket bumper and it only costs around $60. Can't beat the bang for the buck, IMO.
