Almost...

Went into work at 5:30 so I could meet my neighbor for a little lunch install. We got the bumper part on. Just need to do the tire carrier, tail lights and extended brake light.

I'll post better pics when finished.

BTW--If you follow WOL write-up on project-jk know that the shower of metal pieces he referenced will also be hot!!!

Got a few blisters as a memento...

Thats a very nice rear bumper. I was thinking of doing one of those on my JK. Can't wait to see your setup all complete. :clap2:

Heading your way this summer...I could just check it. At ~180 pounds imagine the look on the ticket agents face. :eek: :cheesy:

Always! How can you not have fun there, right? But every year I see the family that doesn't I'd love to hook up!!! We are coming for a few days but they are booked with family (local and visiting). Next year though I will plan around some jeep time!

Man, your JK is coming together nicely :rock: Seems like every week or so either you or JkRay is posting another upgrade photo! Don't forget to include in your budget some room for two California dusters, small one for interior surfaces and the large one for the exterior. I even got Mel Wade hooked on them now :cheesy:

This is a really solid bumper and tire carrier system. Of course I've never run anything else so I guess that makes me a biased fan boy. ;)

Thanks Greg. I'm in! In fact, I gave ol' Knuckles a bath today. Where do I get said dusters?

BTW--what's a budget? :)

Are you still raked or did the rear bumper level you back out?

Don't know. My driveway is sloped. I'll check tomorrow at the office.

Thanks JK. I have to say I was really tempted to go with the EVO carrier after having my bumper cover off. But I do like this. And the ability to carry extra stuff on the rack is a huge plus with a family!!

Found a local dealer that can get it. Now just have to wait a few weeks for delivery. We need a happy dance emoticon :happy dance:
