That was a typo, but I have changed the oil more then twice. Twice the first month I had it, once with cheap oil to flush out any crap then again with mobile 1.

Neat bumper. Will it double as a winch mount or anything else?

This one is probably to small (not deep enough) for a winch. Though eventually this one will go to a buddy's Jeep build when I have time/money to fab a winch bumper. I found this one for 120 bucks and jumped on it.

There's no concern over the open-ended tubing at each side of the bumper? It looks there's already rust forming. :?

I'M SO PISSED OFF RIGHT NOW I COULD PUNT A PUPPY!

The Guy I've bin going back and forth with for 3 mounts to buy a custom Jeep bumper off of is trying to burn me. I'm supposed to pay it off Sunday and pick it up shortly thereafter. Well the d bag e mails me today and tells me someone saw it and offered him twice what we agreed on and that if I can match that I have first dibs.

FUCK YOU UNNAMED DICK IN DELAWARE!
/rant.

Sounds like he's just trying to jerk you for more money. Call his bluff and there's an easy 75% chance he'll fold. I sincerely doubt that what he says happened, did in fact occur.

Yesterday wile the boy played in the snow. I relocated the vacuum ball from on the soon to be replaced bumper to in the engine compartment, right under the master cylinder.

with the help of some flexible hose that fit snugly over the hard vacuum like it was no problem at all.

not the best pic but you can see how I ran the line.

Balls new home.
Eta,the line with the black marker on it is the line I ran.

Hey, where did you get those wheel well covers? I <3 them.
My xj still has the cheap plastic ones that pop off if a tree looks at them.
Maybe it's called a fairing?

O the Jeep with the black fender flares is not mine its my buddy's. I just posted that pic to show the bumper I'm getting off his rig. Though I believe this is what he has on his Jeep.

Got my new bumper today from JeepCherokeeforum member double_ot_xj. I'm digging the new look and he even hooked me up with some black fender flaires, since I was missing one of my white ones. Now I may pull my trim and paint it and under it to match.
Now on with the pix. :mrgreen:
Image

Image

Image
Ill take some pix of how it mounts when I pull it this weekend to reinforce the frame where the bumper mounts to.

Next on the to do list GIT MY LIFT ON. :D
