Today, I took a break from my usually artsy stuff to do real man's work (insert grunt sounds here).
Not long ago I purchased a new jeep... well, new to me. A 2006 with 8,400 miles. A good deal but it was lacking the style and manliness my other jeep had.
For example, my other jeep had a lift and 17 inch tires. My new jeep only has 16 inch tires. I inquired at the dealership as to the cost of adding the extra inches... $2,300... I'm trying to live with my less manly tires.
So in order to raise my jeeps manliness, without deflating my wallet, I ordered parts online and they arrived today. So this afternoon, using my new tools I installed my new parts.
Here are the results:
This is my new jeep before installing the new manly bumper.
and this is after with the new manly bumper installed. I think it looks pretty cool. Ooohhh, Aaahhh...
this is my jeep before adding the side steps.
and this is after with the side steps installed. I would like to point out that although the front bumper was pure vanity, the side steps are not. Though I do think they look cool, they are actually quite functional for the shorter riders.
