Now this is quite interesting. Very creative and well executed. Hose attachment and all and he even made a DIY video. Anyone thinking about this ?

Depends on how hard the installation is going to be, I'm a bit hesitant when it comes to cutting into a car.

Yea the cutting does scare me quite a bit, just for fear of not cutting in the right spot and I'll be officially screwed. But I think it's a pretty great idea. I also wonder how much weight it adds though and how it'll throw off the driving experience

Drilling holes isn't that hard to do. You just have to mark off the area's properly, drill a pilot hole then setup up to a drill bit size that is exactly up to the size you need. Lot of tutorials out there that will help boost your confidence.

I'll definitely need to run some practice sessions first to make sure I have the hang of it lol. As you can probably tell, I'm a little low on the confidence side haha

An alternative would be to just buy one of those portable pressure washers and put it in the trunk. I assume the Wrangler JL will come with ample storage space.

True .. but then you would need a water source.. with this, you can carry the water with you, as well as the hose and everything you need ! Package deal !

This helps for when you're on the trail since there's just about nothing out there just you, your Jeep and the trails.
So doing this makes sense, it's just about the only thing you can do that works for a lot of people. Plus all that space in the bumper is all dead space.

This is the first time I've actually seen something like this and it just seems so perfect for the Wrangler. These are vehicles that take us to some crazy off-road spots and their ideal for heading out there. Now with the water, I mean you can use it for drinking, washing things, a whole bunch of stuff.

Even for someone going to the cottage this can make all the difference. Someone going on a road trip too since it means less having to FIND water, which if you're unfamiliar with the route can take up more time than you think. I know during my cottage and fishing trips it will make a big difference.

Yup. I'm sure you could even make a nice, clean containment for the water and store drinking water in there even.
