Just don't know how I would freight it? Best would be to cut out around the fog lights and then have the pieces plastic welded back in maybe? Common practice here to repair plasic bumpers and motor bike fairings etc. Done some plastic welding myself just melting with a soldering iron and you make filler rods from strips of the same plastic.
Be open to offers if someone want me to do that for them as freight then would be pretty cheap.
I cut around the original lower bumper driving lights as well like that in case anyone wanted to fit them.

Re: The big strip has begun!

I am also a fan of the bumper. I wonder if a dealer locally (domestic) could order one?

Will remove them as hardly going to be a problem under a Willys truck bed.
Yeah, they're the first thing to go when i build a race car..... ones I took off the rear subframe on my Skyline weighed 7kg between the two of them!!!!! - you'd spend five thousand bucks on carbon bits trying to get that weight saving! lol

And yeah, I don't think you'll notice them gone..... the entire driveline is going to be looking around going "WTF!?!?.... where am I"

Re: The big strip has begun!

What do you think of that sub frame? It is only there for the rear end collision protection anyway by the look of it. Fair amount of weight in it and not needed in a fully boxed frame I will have under the Willys I would think.

They are not allowed to order export only items. I have already tried even using my export VIN and all.

Yeah, as you know the majority of it is crash structure, ie, the two lower angled sections that hit the diff in a rear collision.
Also the tow bar cross member.
Most of it is not required.... I assume you're retaining the original Willys chassis? Or are you planning to try and get it to a low ride height?

Keeping the full Willys chassis and boxing it as well. If I dont it wont be registered as a Willys anymore and would have to meet all the requirements for a 2008 year vehicle.

Re: The big strip has begun!

Just wondering in if the US they ever used a steel wheel for the spare on the WK or any other Jeep model with the 5 on 5 pattern for that matter? Can only find the J8 with them so far but have since found out they are 5 on 5.5.
Why I am asking is I would really like to run steel wheels on this project with original caps, but has to be at 17" wheel to clear the brakes.
