Nooo way....I don't even know where the skinny pedal is! Nahh I just like to find a balance, enough to have fun but not enough to break everything. Here's a little finesse on soupbowl haha (trying not to embed, I'm not great at this haha)

I'm just trying to get the axles under the jeep with as little down time as possible as this thing is my daily for now. But I think I'm gunna do at least 5.13 I like doing some speed through the miles of power lines and the pits I live near. And yeah the little i6 isn't much but hopefully ill figure out my set up for my striker eventually.... Far down the road haha and ap I think I might need to have you make me some coil buckets for the front set up I want. Ill pm you about it later and I'm seriously jealous of all of your wjs they are so sick and make me want to sell the other toys and build my jeep to be somewhere along the lines of saturnicl and creep but as is with everything money is the issue haha

This winch is jumbo. And front mounting sucks, I'm building a box to house and mount the winch so it's gonna be heavier and I'm not sure how to make the box look good. Try and cover it up I guess.

that winch is massive, but stout. ive heard very good things about it.

maybe a tube that runs through the hoop on the same lines as the tube under the head lights. then plate or tube the runs down the mounting location of the winch. i cant paint to save my life or else id work some magic. haha.

I finally built the winch carrier and mounted it last week. I have an obese person hoist left from the previous owner of the house and it works perfectly for moving around heavy bumpers too. Im glad i decided to keep it around. I have some plates being made to finish off the bumper. I also have a custom high angle type driveline and flange being made that should be here monday.

You went from a CV to a non CV. May need to change your pinion angle.

That bumper looks beast.
