Bumble is a perfect name!  Poor Barbie, lost her parking spot already.

you might consider a steering stabilizer relocation bracket. it's cheap insurance even though i know you aren't going to be doing crazy rock crawls. almost every lift manufacturer has a version of it.

Barbie had to sit out in the storm last night.  Bumble is nice and dry.  😁  You may notice she is a bit too tall for the barn door.

My morning view of Mingus Mtn, the Black hills and Jerome.

Starting to do some mods to get Bumble Trail ready. 

Installed larger, wider off road tires today.  Went from 31 to 33 inch. They sales guy at Discount tire talked me into wider rims and I am glad he did.  These are about 1.5 inches wider and have a more positive offset, helping to visually fill wheel wells.  Plus, I am VERY happy with how the new rims look.

When we brought it home:

Installed Seat covers on the front seats.  We always cover the seats in any vehicle we buy.  This protects them from my butt sliding across the cushion on the way in and out.

Removed the rear seats so we can maximize the room for camping gear.

Lots of room back here!

Next up, Rock sliders.  We are leaning towards the LoD brand.

That's a sick wheel and tire combo! Love the KO2 and those wheels look sharp as heck!

 

You can't go wrong with LOD in my opinion. I'm leaning towards their Signature Series sliders in the future. The steel Destroyers are super nice as well.

Nice wheels and tires! We love our new KO2's, I think you'll be impressed. Amazing how much room there is in a 4 door sans back seat. Are you guys going to sleep in the back or stick with the tent and cots?

We are sticking with the tent and cots.  I'm a bit too tall to fit comfortably in the back of the jeep.

Washed a bunch of Jeeps this week and decided that I should do a family photo shoot while all the Jeeps are still here. 

L-R  81 Wagoneer,  77 Cherokee " The Chief",  23 Wrangler "Bumble"  and 97 TJ  "Barbie"   😁
