One thing that you usually learn the hard way after hitting the trail a few times is that your rig needs protection. Investing money in axles, lockers, suspension and tires is great, but if your rig comes back after a few trail runs looking like it had an encounter with a sledgehammer-wielding Mike Tyson, you will be a bit peeved. Not having the right armor often limits where you can go or where you want to go, without mangling your ride.

When it came to our '97 TJ, we did not want to limit where we could go. Plus, we knew that we would be hitting the trail--that's why we're doing this rebuild, after all--so it was time to add as much armor as we could to keep our Jeep from getting bashed. However, in keeping with the theme of our Project Teal-J II, all of our parts needed to bolt on easily and take no longer than a weekend to install.

We came across Poison Spyder Customs, which offers a wide range of armor for Jeeps, and we decided to utilize their Crusher Corners, Rocker Knockers and new tube fenders to protect the sides of our Wrangler. To protect the nose and tail of our project, we turned to Warn, whose new Rock Crawler bumpers look stout. We also selected the new Warn 9.5 XP winch to pull out our rig from the inevitable stuck. Follow along as we show you the highlights of our latest weekend wrench session.
