Not a fan of JCR but looks good for sure.
the install of the smittybilt bumper/carrier, I just love the way an xj look with the tire on the back instead of the roof, i wanted a jcr bumper but I thought i would try the smittybilt china version. i was being led by price alone.
the bumper and tire carrier ended up taking a full day to install, they fit like shit and have twist in them probably from the welding sequence used in the manufacturing process, if you feel like bolting unbolting prying, bolting and unbolting some more, prying some more to get all of the seams to look correct where the bumper meets the body, this is the bumper for you, but then again like i said in the first post i am extremely picky it has to fit right and look right as well as perform or it ends up in the scrap heap. make sure you have a friend helping you with this install!
anyway after some grinding and hole elongation the bumper fits well and it looks great.
ok, here she is with the tires and wheels mounted, lift kit on, bumpers on, all the stuff, check out the little wheel wells, not for long, the jeep is starting to get my attention, i'm liking it more and more, i'm starting to get the itch to drive it, but wait more work to do, does it ever end...
the roof rack needs to go on, the fenders need 40 more hours, the tail lights on and on and on.
Nice work! Looks great!
