Alright kiddies I finished building my wj front winch bumper. I've always like the look of baja tube bumpers, so the plan here was to incorporate those design aspects with a regular expedition style winch bumper. It took about 30 hours to build. Completely whipped my a$$. lol
I will be getting it powder coated and then installing a 12000lb winch. I'm just leaving it all tube and going to paint the metal behind the bumper black to blend it in.
I also finished installing the wj safari snorkel. Took about 6 hours. It absolutely is worth the every penny. I could have rigged something up but I need this to be 100% functional. I am impressed with the quality and amount of engineering that went into making this snorkel a water tight and factory looking fit. Also I thought it might cause more of a blind spot along the driver side A pillar, but no it tucks in nicely. You cant even see it from the drivers seat.
The snorkel is one of the most important parts of an expedition rig. When you're traversing through a jungle you never know when you might have to forge a water crossing.
