bumpers for sure, other than that just do whatever. you've got a fantastic start as it is. how do you feel about roof racks? I feel like that'd look good on yours.

Looks good. I cant tell from your pics but some door edge trim will really clean up the cut on your front fenders and make it look good.

You can put door edge trim around the fender and it makes it look cleaner. They sell it at most auto parts stores. Heres mine. It just cleans it up a bit.

Default Pinion yoke

well a couple of weeks ago i snapped a bolt in the pinion yoke and had a hell of time getting it out ended up wrecking the yoke so today i put on a new yoke from the scrap yard. This is after everything is said and done. And of course the photo is upside down... whatever you get the point!

Default TransferCase Brace Bar

So Since the first week i have owned my car i have had C-Clamps hanging out underneath because for some reason after doing my clutch i messed something up and caused the bolts on the TC to strip out on the driver side so until i could find a solution i just clamped it worked well for a while last week one of my friends told me that he had the same problem with his old XJ and gave me a solution... here is how far my buddy and i got today, more to come when this project is finished.
Ol' Blue-1.jpg
Making holes in the floor

Ol' Blue-3.jpg
Moving lift kit to even parts out and prepare for new bolts


So here is how everything went today
1) pull back carpeting in the front
2) Punch holes in floor to open access to original bolts
3) tin snip and open 1" x 5" hole so can insert new bolts
4) Drop TC Bracebar
5) Run out of time with garage space tick of parents c-clamp Jeep back together and call it good for the night!

More info to come soon!
