Hi there 4X4 folks. I could use your help. I have a newly acquired 05 Rubicon (pic attached). I want to do some four wheeling at some point, but for right now she is a Mall Rated daily driver. I would like to update my bumpers, to give her a more aggressive look, and to also be functional for trail riding in the future. As you can see in the photo, there are no fog lights, but I am planning on buying the KC 55 watt fogs. I want D links on at least the front, and possibly the rear. I know that the TJs supposedly need to have the back bumper mounting bracket beefed up with an aftermarket brace, so I'll do that. I need a hitch point as well. Not for a trailer, but for a bike rack. May have to carry up to 4 mountain bikes, but normally just 1 or 2. I think I can get a Reese hitch installed from U-Haul for $100 or so. The problem there is that it will probably hang lower. At some point in the future, I may want to add a winch, but that will be much later, rather than sooner. I have a set of Body Armor rock rails that should be going on this week some time shown here;
So, any suggestions? I should probably mention that I have about $1400 to play with right now. After posting this, I realized that this isn't really about the city as much as it is a grouop of us with a common interest. If this posting needs to be deleted, I understand. Just afraid that posting it in the normal Jeep forums, I will be totally overwhelmed with opinions.
