The front and rear bumpers are Smittybilt for the Jeep TJ/YJ. I just modded the frame ends to accept them as bolt on. So far, so good. The gears are great. The low end torque makes a difference on the dirt. I lost some of the top end speed and a bit off the gas mileage too. But for a trail rig, I'm happy with it. I wouldn't call myself an expert. I learned it all through trial and error with help from the members of this forum. I felt it only proper to post my experiences for others to learn from. I hope you find the information useful.

Here's the link to my "dual batteries" thread.

My "extensive overhaul" thread (with photo of front bumper at the bottom).

And... my bumper thread.
