Sorry to keep hijacking, but I painted my springs about a year and a half ago, primer, paint, then clear coat. Haven't had any chipping, and they do their fair share of flexing

What? That's dumb. I'm sorry. Trucks are cool too though! I like them! If it wasn't for a truck I'd still be stuck in Prairie City!

That way you make sure you dont have to buy a mounting plate twice
Oh dang. Well I guess I better start saving. A winch would be soooo coool. Then when I get stuck...well...I won't STAY stuck! But then there's lockers...and everything...it's so hard to pick one thing to save up for you know?

I googled fairleads and hawse fairleads and I get what they are but I'm not sure what they do?

If you poke around in some local clubs I guarantee you someone somewhere has an aftermarket TJ bumper (possibly with an integrated winch plate) that you could probably score for cheap. You could even paint it differently if desired.
I never even thought of that possibility. That'd be awesome...I'm going to have to...I just don't know of any local clubs! Folsom is boring.

Hahahahaha with your Jeep you can hardly call it a hijack...!! Really? No chipping? I have self etching primer and the green engine paint. I've wanted to do it for soooo long but after the duplicolor bedliner thing I've been a little gun shy.

Wow that's some sexy flex.

Sarah, the roller fairleads are generally the default with wire rope (the steel cable traditionally found on winches) while the hawse fairleads are generally used with the safer, lighter, stronger synthetic winchline. That's not hard and fast, though, as there are exceptions. Hawse fairleads stick out less from the front of the winch and are made from a single piece of metal. I'm not sure what else you may want to know.

A winch wouldn't have saved you in that mud, unfortunately. You have to have something to hook to. I guess another vehicle could've helped, as long as they weren't stuck, too. Lockers, on the other hand, MAY have prevented you from getting stuck in the first place. A D30 Aussie wouldn't require a regear and is only about $250. Might be where I'd go first, if I were in your shoes.

Come on, your right near Sacramento. Surely there are a few Jeep clubs there. Hell, MetalCloak and Rubicon Express are both right next to each other up the road from you in Rancho Cordova, as are a few other Jeep resources. Go visit them some time soon and check them out.

This whole thread seemed to have kicked off with you painting your aftermarket cage (btw, you inspired me to take a second look at the cage I was thinking about, and I've changed) but I have to say it bothers the $&!^ out of me that you didn't pain the factory roll bars. It looks half @$$ed.

I don't agree. The back half unpainted with the roll bar padding looks fine

Yeah? That's okay, to each their own! I didn't paint the factory roll bars because I want to keep the padding on them. One day when I can afford some nice new padding for the rear part of the cage I'll take the old stuff off and paint the whole cage. But for now, I think it's fine.

Well it is! If you're asking him what kind of paint he used, x2 I want to know too! Just regular spray paint?
