Cascadian Is it street legal to mount it on the skid? It doesn't seem like it'd be easy enough to see at the downward angle.

I may be biased though.
The front seats on my 08 wrangler are the worst seats ive ever experienced. The headrests on my 08 wrangler Feel like concrete. But its a jeep so i can put up with it because jeeps are cool.

the trackbar bolts are the wrong size from the factory. But i put up with that because i can fix it myself.

And this problem has killed people and they dont even acknowledge it exists...

The back seat on a 2 door, if the cables should ever break, is impossible to remove for a repair without cutting it apart. All it needs is a second way to unlatch.

The spare tire holder is rated for 30lb but the rubicon comes with a tire heavier than that. Uhmmmmmm..

Chrysler used to have a 2.7 Liter engine that blew up at 70k all the time due to sludge buildup because of an area of low oil pressure because the oil pump was too small.

Chrysler made the only car i have ever seen blow an engine because of a short circuit. Instantly did the crankcase vent mod to that one.

Fail.....

Anyway its not like anyone else is making the jeep wrangler.

No problem. And with a little ingenuity, I've seen guys make it lockable onto the bumper itself... Think steel cable, drill, padlock, etc.

scuba_steve What they ^ said about the fog position.

The stock fog lights on my TJ were mounted outside of my headlights...and that helped them illuminate the side of the road. It rocked...especially on a dark country road. Not a fan of how they are mounted in the stock JK bumper...but on the other hand, it really doesn't matter since they suck.

That's kind of what I figured, but I hadn't seen the disclaimer on any other product so it kind of stuck out.

legitposter If it were a plastic aggressive looking bumper cover then I'd buy it. I'm sick of these big fat heavy things. Even the aluminum ones are too heavy.

No love for the street crawlers?

Honestly i agree.

And atleast they gave us more fender possibilities than the yj guys. The yj fender design is crap for mods....but i do like the stock ones...

And chrysler also sells their sports cars for halfway decent prices.

You bet, the factory fogs work way better in the AEV bumper then they ever did in factory bumper.

These people knowingly use the wrong size bolt on trackbars!

But maybe im the only one who hates chrysler and would never own one except for the fact that jeeps are cool as hell and chrysler currently makes them?

By the way it does look cool.

SERIOUSLY!!!!
Chrysler doesn't make the bumper, WARN makes it for them. AEV also makes bumpers for them (steel bumpers on the COD MW3).

Mark Theriot Anyone even make a list of the various bumper options vs stock - showing the weight difference?

Just curious.
