Get Down Road Quick While Saving Money

Many Jeep owners purchase their vehicles with the intention of making modifications to enjoy going off-road. This is expensive so it can take a long time. Bringing the vehicle to a custom body shop little by little as each modification can be afforded will feel like the process takes years. It may very well take that long.

Alternatives



Doing some of the work yourself will cost much less and take less time. Do-It-Yourself, or zj aftermarket bumpers, can be ordered for a fraction of the cost of a professional body shop. High-quality steel is pre-cut on plasma tables. Owners just have to weld the pieces together and secure them to the front or rear of the vehicle. If the equipment and knowledge are beyond personal capability, it will be easy to find a welder to help out.



At this point, the company has WJ Jeep Bumpers for a few models in several years. Plans to expand the kit offerings are a priority. The current kit inventory consists of1984 to 2001 XJ Jeep Cherokees, 1993 to 1998 ZJ Grand Cherokees, and 1999 to 2004 WJ Grand Cherokees.



Parts



Winch, rear cross member reinforcement, double hinge, and tire carrier kits are also available. For owners who prefer to build their own components, parts are offered to make the task easier. It can be difficult to get after market parts for Jeeps. Mounting and slotted brackets, hinges, and bars are available parts, among others. Complete lists of all parts and model years are on the company website.



Savings



The significant amount of money saved can help get the vehicle off the road at a faster pace. A few months may be all that stands between off the lot and off-road. That is exciting. These vehicles are not cheap so any opportunity to save money has to be a consideration. The company will also custom create parts and kits upon request. These may be at a higher price point, but will still be less expensive than a body shop.



Be Safe



Cutting corners is fine as long as safety is not compromised in the bargain. Focus on the essential modifications first for strength and durability. Off-road adventures will not be fun if the Jeep gets damaged, or injures occur. The flash, decorations, and personal touches can be completed later. Be safe and protect the Jeep, the driver, and any passengers. Wait until all the safety modifications have been made before going on that first off-road trek.
