covered up that open area in the rear between the rear fender and bumper that nobody apparently makes a cover for. Did some minor fabrication on the bracket and remolding of the plastic and it’s good to go. Looks terrible but gets the job done. This area is only there after putting on an aftermarket bumper.

Because years of road grime, mud, sand, and general debris being kicked up by the tires will more than likely end up filling every body hole back there. This will eventually lead to rust. There’s also wires there. Wires don’t do so well when exposed to the elements after a while. Basically the same reason they had them there in the first place. Just trying to prevent future problems.

Placed the order for the AUX switches and a ARB compressor to do on-board air. Got the quote from my local Metal Cloak distributor. That will hurt. Hoping the switch and compressor arrive before the weekend. I’ve got a long weekend planned to install them.

A few detail additions
- Decals for hood, name, side vent and blacked out the JEEPon sides
- Finished off with best accessory yet - Now those backseat drivers will think twice before they say anything...

Help! Can anyone give me a rough estimate of how long it should take to remove the plastic Rubi front bumper and install: Mopar steel bumper, Warn VR EVO 10S winch & mounting plate along with the Maximus-3 filler plates. I'd appreciate it.

3 to 4 hours depending on how nice a job they do on the winch wiring.

Make sure you order 4 extra mopar rivnuts. The steel bumper mounts to different points than the plastic bumper.

I'm researching doing this mod to my Jeep.
