It was a gift but I think it is a harbor freight winch (which I believe they sell for 400)! But i am not complaining about a brand new 12k winch.

Oh that is awesome!

As for the shovel: Why not just a nice rubber bungee cord. Seems like it would hold well enough and look okay if done right while being easily removable.

For those who want to know if the vent scoop really works let me tell you it does. Me and the wife and kids went for a drive and man o man did it heat the cab up I even had to crack the window! It seems to blow harder and hotter if that makes sense! On a side note I finally painted the hood hinges black and hosed the inside and outside off to get rid of all the mud from last weekends trail run!

I got my rough country winch plate today and installed the winch! I also painted the yellow shovel red and mounted it to the high lift with valcrow straps it in on the there good and solid, I am not worried about it comeing off in a roll over seeing how that would be the last of my worries!

How do the fabtech springs ride on the street? They seem to flex really well too.

They ride great but then I don't have track bars or a sway bar! On the side note today I fixed a mess up by the po of my heep when they put the old rc lift (got rid of that crap) they put the wrong size bolt in the springs hanger witch ovaled it out, I found this when installing my fabtech spring but did't have time to fix it. it really drove me nuts because it would sqeek at every bump in the rd (and was really annoying off road) be cause the bolt would walk around in there. so the fix was to weld grade 8 washers to the hanger so now the bolt stays still and no more sqeek!

First off nice jeep! as far as your questions

I'd keep the BL because the springs will eventually sag a bit. I would only change to 35's if you plan on re-gearing at the same time. If it were me I would work on making a flat skid for the bottom, which would essentially be the same as going up a tire size and way cheaper. If you click on my profile you can see a 4" lift with 3/4" lift shackles running 35's. I had minimal rubbing at full stuff. So if down the road you need 35's you should still be good to go with your current setup.

So today I went wheeling up at walker valley orv park with erick (91BoD) had a great time it was really nasty up there (wet and muddy) so I got to use my winch a little! the trail damage for the day was a nice dent in my skid plate and a rr broke spring! so any way now I am looking into takeing out my almost new broken fabtech 3.5 springs in favor off 3 inch old man emu springs what do you guys think?

and 91BoD if it is't any trouble could you post up so of the better pics of us today thanks man!
