Wow Green, that'd look sooo good sitting on top of an AEV 3.5" lift! Seriously, what make are you going with for your new bumpers?

AEV deez nuts!

Bumpers are going to be Smitty XRC w/ carrier

front will be either Rugged ridge stubby or EVO 1/4 pounder

I like Slippery's rig so that is my inspiration right now. Of cours 60s rolling on 40s is a ways out

If it's between Rugged Ridge and EVO 1/4 pounder go with the EVO. That's a sick bumper.

Curious to see it when your done. I have the teraflex flex arms with Rancho 4" springs. I have been building my lift as I go instead of buying a complete setup.

Nothing new to show today, just stripped off a few non essential items like the old muffler heat shield. Also go some GM body plugs for the tailgate to close off the hole from the spare tire mount. Had the MBRP kit so no welded nuts left

Oh and I got my pirate4x4 goodies in the mail so I will slap on a sticker

Cool! I will be starting on mine tonight, but will only be running 35s on a 3" Teraflex lift, stubby bumper with winch, and rear bumper with swing out. For now. So your build will at least be more extreme than mine!

You know that the rubber grommet in the rear passenger corner near the roll bar leads to the inside of the rear fender. Then there is a shitty foam plug on the bottom and you can run your CB antenna wire out that instead of like a tail from your tailgate vent

So your putting on the XHD bumper and bull bar in front, and Smittybuilt XRC in rear? Nice.

I am also going with the XHD in front, but the Mopar in back.
