So a little bit about me and little blue here. I dont know if thats what Im naming her but ill go with that for now. I picked her up at an auto action...I had NO idea what I was getting into other than I knew she was meant for me. All I know is that she went into F/R and started. So I had a fun time getting her to start she wouldnt even idle on her own without someone on the gas...so right away I picked up a new battery and put it. I got her some new plugs wires the whole nine yards..got all of my fluids changed everything..& needless to say she runs a whole lot better now. I picked up a new cat, and turbo cherry bomb. I like it, its not too loud, it only grumbles now...

Jb weld has done great to stop the rust actually

Swapped in a new gas pump cause the old one wasnt working and get a new cluster.

Yeah that's grass I found growing INSIDE my rear bumper...I felt it was necessary to keep it, so watered it for a wile and stuff. I figured
its only fair since me and my jeep have killed at least 2 polar bears.

Here a quick write up on the end caps I did for the my stock bumper..any questions just ask!

1. Remove the stock end caps. - Pretty easy over all; all of my bolt were seized up, so I said hell to it can used a knife and cut around the bolts and then just pulled em off.

2. (optional) Remove the stock bumper to make it easier to clean/paint


3. Put it back on.

4. Install Air Horn (optional) - VERY fun, VERY loud.


5. Trim your "mud flaps" in the front I did mine on an angle - makes it look a bit better. (to me, Its not like anyone else really sees it haha)

6. Enjoy your "new bumper" - I got like 5 people to ask me if I had gotten a new bumper.


7. Mock up your new end caps you want


8. Make some mounts - As CRAPY as those welds look, theyre as good as I can get, its hard to sick weld, galvanized steel(?) seems to burn through super fast


9. Weld em up, screw, what ever, just attach it to your stock bumper, I chose welding...FYI the stock bumper melt REALLY easily and be careful on the Aluminum..the WHOLE piece gets really hot really quick, and will warp..mine did and ironically it fits better . Do the spit test, spit on it, if it bubbles, its still to hot to touch with gloves.. (just a rule of thumb not always true btw)

10. Slap on some paint

(I used bondo to fill the gaps and cracks..I have since them cleaned it up)




(I need new tires huh? )

11. Step back and enjoy something your work.

12. Take some pictures and go brag about it on facebook/twitter

13. Drink a beer/Gatorade/water

Thanks, Hope someone else here gets some good ideas and posts some pictures!



*** anyone in the Ohio area (or anyone else for that matter) wants my front bumper (end caps included) Its all yours. (pay shipping/gas or come get it) I gonna make a big one for a winch since I'm liften my baby here soon
