    I am not going to be jumping anything with the zj except for the he odd 10 foot snow drifts. And you think about it someone stole it and tried to kill it yet it lives with no major damages. The most difficult thing so far was getting wheels on it in the impound yard.

    post up some bumperless pics of the front and rear to give us something to plan around....make sure the shot is in tight enough to show the "frame" mounts. there are some fairly simple ideas online made by other companies....lets shamelessly rip them off!

    Square stock...not much you can do with it.

    Try making a swing out tire carrier for a YJ. Those things go for big bucks.

    I'm sure that you've done your research... but a rear ZJ bumper should look something like this...

    well I can run without the front bumper so no hurry and as for the rear bumper I have to get the smashed up one off first but trying to figure out how to get the bolts out for the bumper as they are inside the frame which give no room for a wrench or ratchet I think the studs for the hitch have to be removed to replace the bumper and use the same mounting spots

    hey if life handed me lemons I would make pie but all I seem to get is crap LOL and the only thing you cam make with crap is more crap LOL

    Well now that i think I have the rest of the problems fixed I can start planning out the back bumper. I only had to replace the drivers door ( broken lower hing on door side) then before that bad brake line. So now got all new rotors and pads do to being towed and loaded without wheels so better safe than sorry fixed the cooler hose leak. Today i replaced 1 brake caliper because it stuck on with my new rotors and pads as well i swapped out the back coil springs (got rid of the back end sag) i also got the hitch and skid plate on today so it is coming along nicely. Now i just have to get the inner wheel wells on the front replaced when i get some more body panel clips. I have also replaced the tailgate a couple days ago. Now i just have to install a kill switch but have to figure out what the best thing to have it kill that people won't think of to get around the kill switch easy.

    If you want to give me suggestions do it in private message please .

    fuel pump kill switch, it will crank over and over maybe enough to hear next time they try to take it, oh and on one of my cars I installed and alarm system but I put the siren inside the car. No one outside gives a shyt about the sound but anyone inside the car won't appreciate the 120+ dB screaming in their ears.
    I thought life handed you lemons..... who the phuk is throwing them at my head !!!

    I know exactly what you are using. Those square tubes are super strong and take huge amounts of force.

    I use them quite often. But that's part of my job in the air.
