I am about to put them on my 2000 since it has been so nice out. I have a custom front bumper attached only with two bolts on each side, no brackets. The plates tie into the steering box bolt and one bolt behind it.
Will this be strong enough to use the bumper's d-rings as a recovery point? Also, the instructions say that the steering box might fall when the bolts are taken out. How likely is the steering box to fall? Thanks -Shawn

Two bolt!!??? your kidding right? thats a custom piece of crap right there, i think i have about 6 on each side...and the steering box will want to fall when you get all the bolts out, just hold it up there, also be careful with those bolts, they have a tendancy to break off

I'm going to have to agree with dsgray16 (custom bumper sounds like crap) what about the passenger side-with only two bolts holding the bumper on both sides i would be hesitant to use the D rings.

2nd that. Any wheeled XJ could use this kit. I have been running mine for quite a while now. Got mine back before JKS bought out the origional designer.

Is there any great gains by running the JKS vs. the C-Rok??

I have the JKS, but I would say this. If you have cracks get the JKS, if you don't have them yet, the CROK should serve you well.
