    I'm down in Florida and I purchased a 2012 Wrangler Unlimited back in October. Also a previous Jeep owner('98 2-door Wrangler) of which I had to sell off because needed more room for the kids.

    Looking forward to mixing it up in here and to some Jeep talk/ideas.


    I've modified it a bit since I got it. See my pics below.....

    Thanks for the welcome.

    Yep, that’s the great thing about a Jeep. You can customize it to whatever you want. My bumper is next on the list. Sitting in my garage actually, deciding on painting with rustoleum before swapping it out.

    I'm in Orlando, the tourist capital of the planet.

    Took a beach day with family yesterday and had to fix a couple things around the house today so didn't get to bumper yet. I know I'm going to at the very least install the new Foglights onto the new bumper today.

    Finally got the new front bumper on today! Looks awesome.

    New Foglights went on as well. Will add pics with all the lights on when I get a chance. And also changed the silver headlight bezels to black ones(looks better all black).

    Left the D-rings off because feel like they would keep bouncing off the bumper and eventually chip the paint off of it.
