Finally got my light bar in and placed, looking great so far. Switched all of the exterior lights but the headlights and high beams with LED's. Next step is fixing a leak in the intake gasket manifold which is on it's way. As well as some warrior 153 shackles on the way to get a simpler lift for now. One plan for the future is to replace the bumper, not a fan of the '99s look, mostly the chrome corners; so, I was debating on switching with a ranger or and older explorer like a '97 (also thanks to the shape of the fog lights, prefer the older explorer and ranger fog lights look), but not 100% on how well that'll swap, if anyone knows or has tried this. That or a custom bumper from somewhere like MOVE bumpers, would love something heavy duty from both front and rear if I can. Any suggestions to threads that can help would be greatly appreciated. Officially put 15,000 miles on her and don't plan on stopping there, shes almost completely fixed up and running right, just need to get her more offroad ready! I do also plan to paint her, probably going to go black, but again, long term plans.
