    This thing looks mean!

    One thing though, that smittybilt rear bumper can be a pain in the rear. Don't put your high lift on top of it or you will have to open the swing arm all the way up to get the hatch open. Also check and make sure the arm is leveled correctly with your tire and everything on it. If that pinwheel is worn you will not be able to get it to level out. I also had a problem with the bolts in the latch striping out. Two of the four were just sitting there freely from the factory. Also if the "bolt" that the latch grabs onto is not level as well then your swing arm will not shut fully.

    This is just everything that was wrong with my bumper I got from smitybilt. I was driving down the street and made a left turn while the swing arm swung open mid turn. Luckily there was no car there or else that would have been really bad.

    Looks good. I have always like the look of a lifted XJ.

    What did it cost you for the new paint if you don't mind me asking?

About us
“wayoflife” is a moniker that I’ve been using for 20 years now and I chose it because I think it does a great job of explaining, in simple terms, the passion I have for Jeeps and the Jeep way of life. This is a lifestyle that transcends age, gender and race as the only thing you need to be a part of it is a love for the outdoors, a desire to explore, a yearning to take on a challenge and a will to conquer it. Over the years, Cindy and I have attempted to capture the essence of this lifestyle through photographs and videos and share it with others around the world. And, this is how WAYALIFE was born.
