Hey guys, first time posting anything build related but I'v learnt so much from this site so I thought I better give back.

35" mud tyres. Done
Tow hooks front and rear. Done
Air intake Done
On board air using AC pump To do
Front behind bumper 9500 lbs electric winch. Currently doing
Rear 9500 lbs electric winch with own battery Currently doing
Spare tyre holder?
Bildge pumps. lol
ZJ Washer bottle install Done

Here's a few random pics I've taken so far.

I got a 99. You're giving me great ideas of what to do when I'm done with it as a daily driver.

So I'm just trying to figure out how to isolate my rear mounted battery and connections to the winch away from the fuel tank? They are damm close but I realy want to keep the weight low and try utilise the space well too and bearing in mind I still have a 35" tyre to fit on top of it all. Once all mounted I will make a removable cover for over the winch and a seperate platform over that which will span the entire space where the tyre will be mounted down too anchored down with a rod from the plate the battery is sitting on. So I guess I'm just going to have to make a secure battery box out of aluminium with rubber lining and also make a couple of aluminium plates to try seal off the fuel tank from inside the truck best I can? The battery will be 100A fused as close the the positive terminal as possible. Any ideas from anyone?
Here are the latest pics

Latest pics of the rear winch and wiring etc. I've plated as much as I can to seperate the tank from the inside on the truck and have decided to mount the battery on the right and the air tank on the left. I plan on building a plywood platform that will house the winch and ropes etc while the spare wheel will mount on top of it.

Love to hear anyones feedback or ideas?

Well its all ready for its first test run although I havent finished the onboard air system yet. I did have some road test run issues developing a misfire once its warmed up. I seemed to have narrowed it down to either the cam or crank sensors and seems to be fine now after replacing both. I hope to hit the trails in the next week or two. Here are the latest pics.
