Yeah that's the one. I thought the jeep in the first pic was the one on the trailer at your house. Plus how many XJs that are built could there be in three Rivers !

Anyway the bumper worked out good. My students stripped it we added some drain holes and coated the inside with eastwoods frame coating. And the outside with POR15 OEM bed liner coating.

Yeah it was on the trailer. Got it all fixed. After about a month the motor decided to seize and uniframe cracked in multiple spots. Stripped it down. Bought a 1997 XJ to start fresh from with all my parts. Ordered Stiffeners for the rear section so far. Inside Rails, Outside Rails and behind Rear Bumper. Ill be doing the entire thing in stiffeners. But for the time being im focused on the comanche build. Then ill swap my lift and new built axles over.

The Comanche build is going to be sweet.

And yeah stiffeners are a must. Mine is so much quieter when driving through off camber holes.

Comanches got it front axle in. Sits on 31's no lift. Could probably do 33's with no lift the amount of clearance it has but im not worried. I began doing my lift swap. Youll have to see it when its done. Looks incredible so far.
