^ The winch plate add-on would probably be the route I would take, but that is still some time down the road anyway.

In other news, assuming its not a washout, my favorite local offroad park The Wishbone Ranch is finally having their first ride of the year for May 18-19. Means ive got 2 weeks to get everything together and ready to go, already got several friends committed to going too.

I checked in on Turkey Bay again and the campgrounds are still partially flooded with rain coming for the next few days so that May 10-12 trip is now officially out. Hopefully it dries up for WBR. Its a lot closer to me anyway and nice and rocky.

I havent been to WBR with my own rig since I had my TJ so Im pretty pumped.

Shot of said TJ at WBR at the top of Gimme Three Steps. Dont make fun of my scweet poserboy bumper. There when I bought it.

Ordered a Putco H4 harness and Hella 80/100w bulbs to go in my Autopals. Ive removed my cheap Harbor Freight aux lights and I forgot how much I used to rely on them at night. The factory harness really does bring the suck.

I will likely rewire the harness to accept standard relays instead of the funky ones. I was going to build my own harness but after I got the materials I wouldnt be saving anything over the Putco setup.

They are only 32s so I believe I can stuff em without trimming. They are pretty good sized over my current 31s, more than I was expecting. But as long as they'll stuff Ill rock flares. Ill hack em if they get in the way.

And yea, I just seen where Dirtbound started offering their Mojave line with a matching front bumper earlier this year. I was ready to pick up a JCR DIY but when I seen the Dirtbound I was quick to jump on it! I plan to get the matching rear one day but I needed a front worse lol.

I spoke with them today and they were super cool guys. Told em about my wheeling trip the 18th and they said they'd do their best to get it to me in good time. Im pumped!

Haha Ill get plenty of pics, dont worry.

Aside from how badass the Dirtbound front looks, the last push that turned me off to the JCR unit was that they didnt go ahead and include tie-in brackets. I feel that should kind of be a standard deal when you are selling a bumper with d-ring tabs lol.

I am rocking JCR's banner on my windshield right now actually, mainly cause I had it from a previous purchase from them and I planned on buying their front bumper. I went ahead and ordered DirtBounds windshield decal to swap on though. No problems with JCR though, had great service with them too but I was drooling too much over the Mojave front not to buy it lol

Oh and the box is RC 2.0 mono's for the front. Nothing fancy but they were cheap thats got me with an 11" travel shock up front and 10" out back. Need to work on bumpstopping probably and eventually picking up some LCA's with a damn flex joint.

Still so much to do. WBR trip is less than 2 weeks away now.
