What did you ever decide about your front bumper? I just came across the UCF piece. You hack your front cross member off and then weld this bumper onto the frame rails. Sinks the winch down like you were wanting.

Thanks B and I have seen it. I really like UCF's jeep a lot. I like their piece and there was one other company that was posting on pirate that has something similar iirc. They are both nice but would need a bit added for the 8274 mounts. I really like how Taala 2's turned out. I am holding off on the idea for now but still plan on it sometime in the future.

That bumper also requires full hydro, as you have to remove your steering box mount. Or do a custom JK steering box.

I REALLY like that.

I might have a bunch of Savvy stuff for sale soon (front and rear bumper and an exogate).

Just gonna throw the spare in the tub for now. I like the look of no spare.

Posting up because I need some help.

I just wired in everything for my warn 8274 thru the super winch control mechanism. Started the jeep and it worked perfectly going in. Then I tryed going out with no response and now going in won't work either. When I hit either but on the remote, I can here the mechanism clicking (I guess to send power to the motor of the winch but no movement on the drum. I removed the winch control box cover and made sure the connections weren't jumping (very close in the warn box with super winch mechanism) but it just response the same.

Edit: just figured it out. I had the ground attached to the wrong part of the motor and it was grounding the positive signal before te motor could respond (I guess). Appears to work find now.

Well, after the winch was working I did a few more things to be ready for next weekend's wheeling.

Replaced all the hardware on the new bumper with grade 8
Removed stock rear flares
Aligned driver door
Fixed rattling glove box
Tightened every armor bolt

Then mounted passenger seat (driver had a rip which my mother is repairing). Used the mastercraft seat adapter bracket. Retained stock slider and cross brackets that needed trimming to work. Soon, I will get a set of harnesses and a cross bar behind the seats to mount them from.



The new seats are slightly wider or offset away from center...



I have been wanting to change the stock seats out since day one. Always hated how they feel. This new one is perfect for me. It isn't adjustable but does have the adjustable lumbar support. I believe they are mastercraft original seats.

Also finally got around to mounting the centramatic wheel balancers (haven't street tested yet).

Against my 16" steel wheels



I ended up flipping them around from this position.







And the leftovers so far. I got a bit grinder happy with the removal of the seat.



All the wheel weights that were on.

Centramatic wheel balancer update - awesome. About 90% less shake thru all speeds. Can't recommend enough.

I got the driver seat installed yesterday and they feel great when driving around. Ill get some pictures later this week.

Does anyone know which fuses are linked to the key being turned on? I want to run a powered item off one that draws very little power. I did a search last night but did not find much.

Which one is that? As to competing, I wouldn't bet against seeing me on the starting line at this point.

Not sure, should have a legend by the fuse box or on the back of the glove box.

Thanks. I have been wanting to put my led bar on a keyed fuse and not worry about draining the battery for a while.

I should be at SI by thursday night or friday morning. My race is friday afternoon and I plan on running "the bowels" (the one Rudy ran last time with the gopro vid). A friend is giving me a gopro for the weekend too.
