Ok, shew! I know I know, it's been a while. I haven't had much time for Jeep love lately with my new job and such but I'm finally getting settled in and will start having some more free time.
Here's what's up:
I've had this Engo E9000 shacked up for way too long. It's time to get it out of the box and on the Jeep. I've got a decent eBay bumper that I modified earlier in this build, so I didn't want to go out and spend $700 on another overpriced bumper.
I decided I wanted to build my own winch plate. I wanted to keep it simple, yet strong.
It'll be made out of 1/4" plate and should be pretty strong. What do you guys think of the design? I wanted to get some opinions before I put it together this weekend.
I've already got a pair of cheap rectangles for the bumper. I opted to go cheap on the lights because hey, I don't wheel at night, and if I do, these lights will be more than enough for what I need. It'll be nice to have a little extra light during the snow this winter, that's about it.
I'll also have four more for the roof after I fab my roof rack cross bars. I've also been planned a switch panel for these:
Bad photo, I know. I actually have three of these switches from OTRATTW. The other one says rear roof lights which I am debating on whether or not to use.
Let me know what you guys think of the winch plate idea, I'd like to get some feedback on it.
