Lets just say...95% of what a Wrangler can do !..ha,ha.
Have a great weekend

Sorry Kegs, I guess I should have been clearer...The front valance on a Summit is not easily removable. Mine was removed because I did heavy modifications to the front of my Summit. In fact I put some of it back but had to cut a large portion of it out for my RRO pre-runner. So, it can be removed but it is a little more involved than the 7 quarter turn fasteners the other models have. Also, behind it isn't designed for it being removed and it will look far more "unfinished" than it does on other models. I hope this make sense...

Re: Back from a 4x4 trip in snow

Victor, after watching all your travels with the jeep, I can comfortably say if the big wigs at FCA saw your trips they might actually make you a brand ambassador, that or perhaps they might just cut your JGC's warranty :P

Re: Back from a 4x4 trip in snow

Inspiring Videos! Thank you

My question has to do with a 5000 miles trip Im getting ready for. Most of the 2 weeks is for work but I plan a few days of fun. Im not sure what to do with the lower bumper?
When do you remove the lower front bumper, right before you head offroad & then store it in the jeep?
Or do you remove it before you start your entire trip & store it at home?

Thanks

Re: Back from a 4x4 trip in snow

Thanks Diggum !......lets hope nobody cuts warranty, here in the local and only Jeep dealer they asked for my pics and videos to promote the brand and use them when a person asks about the Jeep and what it can do, etc.

LJS8510 - My suggestion ?, remove the lower bumper BEFORE you go, your GC wont look as nice as with the bumper on...but if you go offroad in sand, mud, rock or whatever you will most probably damage it as its very low.
Its easy to take off after you do it a couple of times, takes less than 2 minutes, and...if you take it down during your trip where will you keep it ?, in the car it doesnt look big but once you take it out you realize its very big, and if you've been driving i dont think you will want to get that piece inside the car, most probably its dirty, etc.etc.
So going straight to the point...remove it before you go.
Have fun and share your pics when you get back.
Rgds.

Re: Back from a 4x4 trip in snow

Thanks, no modification, only thing was to remove the lower fascia which is the same and only thing I do when going on offroad trips.

Re: Back from a 4x4 trip in snow

Awesome videos and pictures! Envious of the scenery - but admit I'm completely jealous of your train horn! I've wanted one of those in my car for at least 20 years now.
