    VIDEO : JL JOURNAL - LoD JL Destroyer Shorty Front Bumper & WARN Zeon 10s Install

    While our original plan was to install a WARN Zeon 10s onto our factory front Rubicon Steel Bumper, we got talking to our friends over at LoD Offroad and decided to change our plans and test out one of their all new, JL Destroyer Shorty front bumpers. Fortunately, it comes with a built in winch plate, a winch protector hoop with auxiliary light mounting tabs and ports to allow for the mounting factory fog lights. In this episode of the JL JOURNAL, you'll get to see what it took to get both installed on JET Li, our Jeep JL Wrangler Rubicon Unlimited. We hope you enjoy.

    Looks good on there. Kind of a bummer that the factory fogs don't fit.

    That bumper looks great on Jet Li, he's growing up so fast lol. It's ashame about the led fog lights but the lights you used looked great installed.

    Why would LoD make a bumper that doesn't accept the factory LED fog lights?

    Yeah, it sucked but I'm told they're working on a fix for it.

    Fortunately, we were still able to make it work and with LED bulbs, you can't even tell.

    Their Sport didn't come with the LED group and so they assumed all the fog lights would be mounted the same. The JL is new and we're all figuring it out as we go.

    Nice! This bumper install on the JK is essentially the same. Just some minor differences on the skid plate. Looks great!

    Funny thing is, I'm pretty sure I got instructions for a JK and yes, they looked about the same.

    We may still do it someday just because if nothing else.

    Great video! I really do like that bumper on the jet. Sucks the dogs didn’t fit but I’m glad you found a backup plan and to hear LOD is working on fixing the fog issue

“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.
