Dang, just a few days over a year. I had already forgot how long I had had it on there. The week after I put it on, I built some signal lights for the bumper. I found these cool little LED clearance lights and made some little brackets to fit the bumper.

Nice job! Looks good.
For those looking to remote mount the solenoid pack here are a couple of pics of what it will look like.

Yea I want to do that. I've just been too lazy to do it. Might be a winter time project.

great job on the winch plate! Can any steel shop do that bending?

Probably not just any average shop. The one that did this works with a lot of large stuff. But will also take the time to do small things for the litle man. The two machienes that made my plate were very large. One was a shear that cut the plate, and the other was a brake that bent it. And this is 1/4in thick plate too!

call ahead and ask. if they can't do it on site, then there's a good chance that they can tell you who can locally.
