Thanks for the offer man, but I actually just bought and installed the rough country winch plate. I'm planning to order some dom and build a tube style front bumper using the plate as a mount.

sent from, uh

RC Winch plate and Winch

So I got my winch mounted up. These pics are before wiring.





And after wiring. Tested it out by pulling my buddies f150 around the backyard. Worked fine

They unplug from the factory. At least on the 95. I'd assume it's the same for all the years.

The wire is tucked into the pillar, so you have to wiggle it out to get to the plug, but it should be in there.

How long did it take you to bedline your floors? And did you do the trunk area?

Damn son, you sink it? And it only took a day or two. I do all of my projects in stages, so I did it over the course of a few weeks. But it can be done in a day. I did not do the back ,as I have a very nice rubber trunk liner that was installed by the PO

Ok yeah, I already took all the seats out except the driver seat, so I can probably finish in a day. And nooo... I have a sun roof leak :thumbsdown: I know this won't fix that problem, but my floors are trashed now so I gotta do it.

On my first ZJ I drilled holes in the floor and put in boat plugs to drain or wash it out easily. Nothing is worse than old stagnant swamp butt water sitting in there.
