    Brown Santa dropped off the new front bumper today. Install took less than an hour. I'll get a pic tomorrow.

    I like the way it looks except for the powder coat. No more plastic ends to rip off!
    I'll see if I can get a better picture from straight on later when the light is better.
    Now need to wait for more funds for the rock sliders, rear bumper and diff guards.

    I like the bumper itself but not a huge fan of the powder coat. Otherwise very happy with it. Check out 4 WD hardware on ebay. Got it for $120 new. Morris pushed delivery to mid Dec. so I looked around and found that price. Odd since the 4WD website is $160

    Congratulations Jeff. You will be very happy you waited for the auto tranny. I'm helping a neighbor install a Rubicrawler next month. Hope we can wheel together next season.

    Thanks John
    Only been out once and didn't need to use the lockers. Going to take a little getting used to.

    You will find that the rear locker is also a limited slip that is pretty tight. That, coupled with the auto tranny makes for some great traction capabilities. I read through this thread and see you held out for the auto. Great looking Jeep. I have a neighbor who just went through the same search and ended up with a first year Rubicon with an auto. Way more manual tranny Rubicons out there. You scored!

    4:1 t case too! Looking forward to getting it out and abusing it a little. It definitely rides better than my 71 and I don't need to shower after driving it:). My wife thinks it rides like a brick on wheels but likes it too.
