Here's some photos of my TJ.
It only has a 2 and a half inch lift on 32s but still manages to out perform most of the big 4wds I go out with. Everyone gives me shit for owning a jeep but they think it's a little freak. It just goes over or through anything I point it at. Love it. View attachment 46580 View attachment 46581 View attachment 46582 View attachment 46583
I have to ask...whats the deal with mounting antennas on the front bumper? I feel like I see this very often on Australian and African off-road vehicles but never here in North America. Is there some benefit to mounting it up front or is it better reception or what?

Just curious..

Yeah not to sure, I use to do installs on company vehicles and trucks and they have it there for less interference, ie having it to close to metal body parts causes interference apparently, not really much of a problem with Jeeps. I have it there more for a height gauge, its the same hight as the roof so if I hits its a no go.
