Default Bumper mods

I shortened the bumpers on my rig tonight. On the rear I could have gone in further but I still wanted it to look more like a bumper than a roll pan. I trimmed a little of the quarters of the body. On the front I moved the winch to the very most part of the bumper. (Should have done that in the first place) Then I shortened the posts on the bumper so it would go in further then drilled some new holes in the posts. Also had to do some trimming on the bottom of the posts so they would insert in all the way. I then took about a 1/4" off the bumper where it wraps around to the wheel opening.It still slips my mind to take before and after shots. I only have the 1 chassis shot from above of before but you can see the difference. Now just have to wait for the snow to melt again to get out on the trail and find some rocks to climb.

Your approach and departure angles look much better, and the bigger tires seem like they would help. Also good looking XJ!
