    Yea, heard about this farmer in NW Florida that makes them outta lead. Guaranteed not to scratch them...cause after installed, the jeep can't move!...Sorry, I couldn't pass up the opportunity. I think it may be too early for them to be on the market. I too am interested...hopefully by summer...

  10. Swapping 17s for 18s

    Your post is confusing swapping 18s for 17s or 17s for 18s? But, if you ever intend to build up rig with allot of weight, stay with the you may find that you need to add bigger brakes and the 18s may allow the additional space you will need.

  14. Near Death Experiences

    I have owned 5 jeeps, served in 5 combat/hostile fire zones and had near death experiences 4 times: 3 in Beirut (83-84) and once in Afghanistan. Not one of those near death experiences occured in a jeep. Goes to prove how safe jeeps are.
  15. For all you Jeeple...

    Jeeps aren't as friendly to the environment as many other vehicles. However, the biggest threat to our environment, that isn't addressed by the media....oxygen wasters...that provide no value to our world or people. Example: see video at beginning of thread.

  18. Bumper dilemma

    Also check Hefty Fabworks. I believe their bumpers are steel and their site doesn't show brush guards on the JL/JT bumper...but, I have been led to believe that they are willing in many cases to make mods to their products.
  19. Bumper dilemma

    Suggest you check out the Genright site...they have a couple of aluminum bumpers that provide brush guard protection for the grill and headlight area.
  20. Just ordered Eco-Diesel Rubi
