That is sharp.  I'd be jealous but I don't think mine will ever be that clean again.  Good for you.
Does this mean you'll have a lot of stuff for the swap meet?  I could use a straight stock front bumper.

As a matter of fact I will be bringing a few things to the swap meet. I do have a stock rear bumper, but the front bumper was after market. Not sure who made it, but it is nicer than stock... see here:

I also have some Westin tube steps, a hitch, some mirrors, and maybe a couple other odds and ends.

Ol' Yeller got an "old School" front end alignment today. I had my first death wobble experience last week (don't read anything into this) and it got my attention! :o With 4 new leaf springs and shackles, the timing was right to do it anyway. Front right wheel was toed in about 1" and the left about 1/4". Now she's running straight and true! ;)

Mike,

To be PC we will now have to relate that as REALLY, REALLY, REALLY  BAD wheel vibration coming from the front of one's vehicle.

Thanks Angie    ;D

Sorry, but I'm preoccupied with having to go back into work the other half of a split shift tonight, or I'd have said something totally crass and embarrassing in response.  Please forgive my temporary lack of humor and just use your imagination.   :-\

OMG, you all make it so easy to be me!

Erica, stop looking up my skirt. :P If I was in any other position with the short shorts, the pictures would have been rated "X".

Colli, nice front end.....great paint job.

Mike, I've had death wobble before.

Norm, so much for PC. 8)

Hmmm, I will have to look into that. Thanks Jack!

Charlie is the artist who painted the diff cover. I'm not sure what he used on that, but he did a great job! I just used whatever spray paint I had left in the garage to spray down everything else under there.

   I was asking, with tongue in cheek, 'cause of all the rust, rock rash, under mine...

   Your Jeep's looking good!
