Next order is a new front bumper. I have always wanted the SRC stinger front bumper and it seems to be the one I keep coming back to the most.

Every time I see the pic of your jeep on the rock I think I need one of those at the same place too.

Speaking of front bumpers, a new one is on it's way today for me. I'll be content as can be as long as she fits!

A Rugged Ridge All Terrain Modular front bumper. In the middle of putting it on today with the beautiful weather currently. Didn't realize this bumper required the relocation of the front vacuum pump but it doesn't look like that big of a deal. The pump however makes it REALLY hard to access the bolts when taking off the stock bumper. I had to really get in there a weird way to take off the driver's side fog light first before I had enough room for my breaker bar. Here's a pic with the D-ring mounts not yet together but the stock fog lights have been moved over.

13th mod Rugged Ridge All Terrain Modular front bumper. The install was simple, only four bolts that mount both the bumper and d-rings all in one to the front of the jeep. This install DID NOT REQUIRE relocating the vacuum pump like I mentioned in the previous post. The directions called for moving it only if you were also installing the winch mount plate. This one did not have the optional winch mount and just mounting straight on.

Front no bumper


Vacuum pump in stock location (no relocation needed for the new bumper)

I hear ya on simple things now, that also solves the issue of finances after all these big mods. I need a high lift though. Wonder about mounting it to the front bumper? I don't want anymore weight on the rear as is. Not crazy about the cowl mounts but I have thought about those too. Hmm....

Runs comfortable and has power to spare. Things are a different story on the interstate with all seats full. With one or two riding, it feels fine but beyond that it's a little harder on the engine.

The jk isn't the most convenient vehicle I ever owned. The upgraded sound system is satisfactory. It ain't fast and towing capacity is "meh".

It is however, the only vehicle that I would buy again and again.
