    I think I will order, Discount $$ was a lot higher. I would rather get them at Discount, but gotta save $$ where I can. RC still has my front axle, the bearing kit I ordered had the wrong bearing for the Elocker. Maybe it will be done today...

    Check out all of the web sites for the tires you want and find the best price then go to Discounts site and tell them the amount and the link for the best price. Their site says they will price match!! The were going to price match for mine!(I did go somewhere else because I got some other things thrown in with the tires) I run the BFG KM2's and really like them! Good luck!

    you can check for low prices at TireRack on the internet, then get your favorite tire place to match the price.....plus shipping charges.

    I just installed a new transmission oil cooler for those HOT Yuma summers.



    I had to take the front grill off to get at the mounting location



    Cooler installed and ready to do some plumbing



    I spliced into the transmission oil return hose



    I just need to put the front grill back on, and I am finished

    My new bumper from Rough Country

    This picture shows the bumper bracket attached to the Jeep



    The winch plate attaches to the main bumper, make sure you install it before you attach the bumper to the Jeep



    The stinger bar and D-rings are all bolted on - I had to call John to come over to the house, to have a extra hand to help me tighten all the bolts.



    The bumper is bolted on and ready to go on the Toy Run
