anyone ever use or heard of 4xguard? I noticed JBA is starting to carry a lot of their stuff, but haven't really heard of anyone trying them here or on any other forums.

They carry a lot of their stuff since,.................... JBA owns 4XGuard now :wink:
I have one of the bumpers/brush guards here sitting on the work bench
Great looking, tough, etc. Fits well on a KJ 02-07 just need a KK to fit it up to next

The funny thing is that I NEVER roll the backs down but they are the only ones that break. The fronts are down everyday and have never had a problem

Removed the rear sway bar, like the way that the jeep seems to adjust more quickly to ruts and potholes making a smoother ride.

Yes, it has it's benefits off-road. You will notice more body roll on-road thou........

yeah i took off my rear sway bar a long time ago too the thing is that i am still not 100% sure that i like it. I mean it has its advantages but I like to take corners a little faster than i probably should

Spent the past 4 days on a little project, thanks to METCRD for getting these to me!
Image
Decided om the frame rails to ditch the self tappers and put grade 8 bolts through instead. Took a little longer than anticipated because I was working alone so readjustments were the hardest part. Once holes were drilled everything was good to go though!

Next up is to let them sit a bit and make sure the paint cures real well then a good washing is in the jeeps future

Went to a jeep show at 4wheelparts. Came home with a new compressor, hilift, and a tow strap that I won in a raffle. If only I had been drawn one drawing later it would have been a winch instead! Saw some cool wranglers, but the rest were just your "insert lack if creativity here jeep in a box".
