Broke-in the new JK

Well, I took it up to the mountains, and ended up crushing my right rear bumper and kissed the tail pipe off a big rock. Now it looks like a 4x4

very nice. You know the best way to avoid this damage in the future? 4.5" lift and 37" tires. You wont even know that rock is there

Wow..........looks exactly like what happened to mine when the wife backed it into a light pole in the Wallyworld parking lot. Plastic crap! The sad part is that I still can't convince her that i need a better rear bumper.

What's up Marshall good to hear from you, are you in the states yet? Life is great back here "breaking in" the new Jeep.

Make sure you send in some pics when you get your JK.

The trip home sucked... froze our A$$ off in Manus, sat 9 hours in the plane on the run way cuz the lil bastards wouldn't push our plane out.

stay in touch.
