That turned out great. If you hadn’t pointed it out I’m not sure anyone would have realized it.

I enjoyed Ripley and the pig. The reaction to the noise on the first oink was funny
Thanks! When we were at Jeep Bash, I don't think most people noticed it. Just the way I like it :)

Glad you enjoyed seeing Ripley

I think it looks great…I’m familiar with the rear bumper/hitch receiver noise (Kane Creek, Dusy, Pritchett)…but I’ve been fortunate in not hitting the bed there, which on mine is fiberglass…

the Ripster needs her own channel…

In my opinion this is a great idea for that extra space needed back there. I think the look suits the Jt also. Solid video!

Here piggy piggy....

I bet she'd get more views than our Jeep stuff too. 🤪

That came out great Eddie and Cindy. I’m glad you pioneered this mod so I have something to follow on mine. I like how clean it all looks.

Agreed! Looks great. I'll keep this in mind if I ever get to that point with mine.

A clean cut that looks factory! Came out great and something that could possibly come out to be common like the cutting of the rear pinch seam on the earlier JKs.

And I mean clearly Ripley is bringing in all the revenue 🙄😂

Awesome. Hopefully it won't be needed but IF it is, you know this can be done. :)

Thank you and after seeing it done, I do have a feeling more people will end up doing it someday.

And yes, Ripley is clearly the star here LOL

Can you just make something look crappy at least once so the rest of us can feel normal 🤣🤣🤣. Nah it looks awesome. What tool did you use to cut with?

LOL - I taped off the body with blue painters tape and then used a cut off wheel to do the trimming. If you look real close, you can see that it's not a perfect job but I think it came out okay.
