After that I tore apart the inside and saw a problem, nice big rust spot in the front passenger side
I decided I sand down the entire floor and fiberglass the holeS, that's right multiple, all over scattered about as seen in the picture

After that I reprinted the entire floor in hopes to prevent this again
Before letting my jeep take a nap for a while, we cut the fenders and trimmed the bumper, painitng it black and adding 3700lb DRings
While the jeep was "napping" on the side of the house, I had got in touch with a friend who hooked me up with his winch for $200

Now that I had the winch, I needed a front and back receiver so I could take it on and off, we'll start with the front. I ( along with the help of dad of course) built a receiver and bolted it to the front

My winch was going to be removable, so my front plate had to be sturdy yet easy to remove the winch from, just welding, bracing, and bolting, e best was getting the nuts on that were blocked by the steering box...when we finally got it all together, we painted it black to match the bumper.

In he future I would like to get some 33" tires, build a roof rack with lights on all sides, and get some armor as well as buy a rear receiver, unless anyone knows any good write ups. Also, has anyone tried putting your CB in the little holder under the passenger glove box, thought of cutting it out a bit so it'd fit but I don't know what's behind it, got a weird shape.
