****, I guess you'll have it pretty well built by the time I get to see it. Let's plan for about 15 years from now, maybe.

Engo winch isn't a bad idea at all.

This is what's going to happen for my axles in the future (since everyone keeps telling me to do lockers):

Swap LPD30 to HP30
4.56 F/R
C8.25 Disk Conversion

Electric, Cable or Other Selectable lockers (~800 each)

Most likely these things won't happen til next summer.
