No not yet. I was just looking at winch's so I need to get going on it. I have a few ideas. I like the look of a stinger, but if it's not tied into anything it seems like it's just for looks. I will do a hood tube on it though. I need to hit that and the cage. Up next is a new stereo. I want to be able to run my ipod. I'm still thinking about doing the U-pol or the cage first. Either way I need to get to work.

Have you made any progress on that front bumper?

Thanks. I liked the idea of it, but wasn't sure untill I saw the seat ~SEAN~ did in his monster. The brackets where easy to make. Some L metal, a grinder, and drill. I have some ideas for a little locking storage behind the seat also.

Nice jeep - you will have fun with your "future jeeper". I take my kids (5 & 3) and they love it. If you are looking at a new stereo I just installed an Alpine X305S with a PDX 5 under the dash with skinny pedals amp mount. The ipod control is awesome and the sound is amazing - it's the only stereo I've ever had that I can't turn up all the way - it will hurt you. I'm new to the forum and haven't master posting pics, but I have several and will work on it if you are interested.

Thanks man! I really like Alpine head units, but I don't need much in the jeep. I was think of going with an Apline and the power pak, but my hearing is bad enough as it is. Too many explosions and gun fire haha. I picked up a Pioneer unit that was on sell. Plus I didn't like the idea of buying alpine's special ipod cable.

They where FabTec. Very basic. They didn't have that much coverage under the tub.

Like the looks of your Jeep man! Good thread to read. I like the three seat configuration, but it doesn't work with a wife and two kids. Haha....

Just going to be the one for us, so I won't have to worry about another seat. There is room for it though. My first plan was to put two rear seats in with one of them able to go in and out if needed.

I was down helping my mom out after some surgery and thought I'd make a little run to an area I grew up hunting. I had a great time until one of the snow drifts sucked my over the edge. With the rear diff locked I was able to get out. When I told my wife about it she told me it was time to buy a winch. Yeah I know I was being a donkey going by myself. On the way now is a Superwinch 8.5, some Amsteel-blue line, and Currie anti-rock! I better get to work on the bumper.

Some pictures from my little run. I didn't take any from over the edge since I just wanted to get out.

How's that ZJ tie rod working for you? I was thinking about getting a HD one, but that's a good idea. I'm in Oregon too, which part are you from?

Thanks. I haven't taken very many pictures. Is there something you would like to see?

The ZJ rod has worked great so far. I still plan on doing currie steering down the road. The ZJ rod is way stronger then stock though! I am just out of Eugene. How about you?

I'm thinking about boxing the ends in and calling it good. It will still be stronger then the stock bumper. My goal is to keep the weight down.
