The Ninj is getting a butt tuck! Spare tire delete is done and just got the @Motobilt crusher back from powder coating and whoooweee does it look good!!
The factory steel bumper is a joke as it rolled up into the body on both corners and then when I took it off I found even more damage. Pulled the tub back out relatively straight and slapped some paint on it since the bumper will hide most of it. Last thing need to do is wire in the license plate light. Then it's off to shaving the fenders with American Adventure Labs kit then will need to order the front crusher bumper and sell the steel bumpers, Warn winch plate and fog lights.

That bumper does look good. Is that just a clear powder coat?

Yep. I took spider web looking sanding wheel thing and put it in my drill and buffed that pattern into it and then had them clear powder coat it.

Oh yeah. I had to slightly tweak two of the clips they give you but everything went together pretty smoothly. Just got done wiring the license plate lights in.

Lads,

I've been to Wilmington area drive on beaches and Uwharrie in my Cherokee from some off roading.


New wrangler coming in a month or so, hoping to plan a trip somewhere.... Where do I need to check out?

Ok I should've been more specific....Places in NC :)
Oh... Uwharie... that's about it for serious wheeling. Next would be Wind Rock in TN. I lived in the Raleigh area up until this past October and really the only place worth while was Uwharie. Of course there are trails to and fro here and there like Hurricane Creek you can check out and @UNC Rubicon has a thread on here about them. You need to come out West and taste the off roading it will spoil you :)

Unfortunately there is not much in NC. Uwharrie and Hurricane Creek are the best. Then there is Brown Mountain and Patriot Mountain.

Gulches in SC is a lot of fun and there are some good places in Virginia.

We have a text group that plans trips regularly, from local to all the way out West. You can message me your info if you want to be added.

I'm not because I have a new Jeep on order and I am returning my Jeep to stock.

But I know some of the other guys are. Just not sure exactly when. If you want to message me I can add you to the group or I will try and post the plan here.
