    Yeah, I know what you mean. I don't mind how it sounds currently, pretty good to me. However, I am thinking about giving your method a try to see the difference. I don't mind the volume, it's more about the tone.

    I received my front bumper in the mail today and was able to get it installed this evening (pics below). I really like the quality and look of the bumper. It has a very solid feel and clean construction. The install was pretty straight forward. The only disclaimer I would provide is, on this shorty version, it can be difficult to get the mounting bolts installed. The shorty version impedes the space where you insert the bolts from the front toward the back, but with a little finesse, it is definitely possible. Other than that, the construction was very well thought out. There are slots on the bottom edge to get a wrench on the bolts while you tighten the nuts on the inside. Mounting the winch was also straight forward and fit perfectly. I routed my winch cables up behind the stock airbox and directly toward the battery. The cables were the perfect length for this without any extra slack.

    I am looking forward to the next step in the build...not sure what that will be yet. I decided to give Dynatrac a call today and asked them to go with 5.13 instead of the 4.88s. I figured the slightly larger gears would be better if I ever wanted to go with larger tires...but also because I would rather have the more torque. They also said the axles would be finished sometime mid September....so that will be a nice painful wait. But I am thinking about prepping for the lift and large tires, maybe cutting my stock fenders and looking into some sliders. I would be happy to hear anyones opinion on sliders. Also, I have been looking into a cage, not sure to go with the Evo or the Rock Hard cage system. Any advice?

    Looking good. Can't wait to see more! I really like my Rock Hard cage. I don't think you'd go wrong with either of them.

    I believe on the Scarlet Witch build thread he has some good pics of his install of the Rock Hard cage.

    Thanks for the advice! I am leaning towards the RockHard. I like the round geometry.

    Yes for sure both great options and I know I couldn't go wrong either way. I wonder if there is any differences between the visibility of the two cages...

    Thanks for the info. I took a look at that build thread, very awesome! I sent a message asking more, but the RH definitely looks good colored and installed.

    That build does look awesome. Another thing I’ve found a couple years back on this forum is to cut the bottom of a milk jug to protect the corners on the dash. Just something I put in the good ol’ memory bank for when I do my RH cage. Lol

    Thanks! Yeah the September timeline, although not that far away, is going to be a struggle. I am mostly just looking forward to getting it all put together so I can get out on the trails.

    Great looking jeep you have there. Looks like I will go with the same bumper.

    I have the RH cage in mine. Love it. I'm tall and have no issues with seeing out. I think the EVO gives a little more visibility though. I'll post up some pics soon.

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.
