james, i searched for the superwinch epi 9.0 a few weeks ago and guess where it popped up?..............the home depot! (someone mentioned you work there) i work for another *cough, cough* big *** home improvement store and i am going to try and special order a winch through them, cost +10%. might look into that.


i'm so tired of being tired, sure as night will follow day, most things i worry about, never happen anyway

I do work at the Depot, but honestly, with the deal I found on the Warn winch, I hesitate to look at anything else. Yeah warn is a little more expensive, but for that price, I'd be stupid not to just get the M8000. BTW, I get no discount at work, however, we do get pretty ridiculous deals from time to time. Like the 5 piece 18v cordless tool set I got for 40 bucks. Thems is my trail tools just in case. Good luck getting your winch man. Hope it works out.

"LCOG" isn't cheap and it certainly isn't easy. If you think so, you are doing it wrong. If you aren't willing to put in the effort, don't label your build "LCOG". You are just a cheap ******bag.

In light of some recent revelations, I'm deciding to change a few things up. Those that have followed along, knew of some build plan changes, but I'm going to keep updating my first post where I talked about what my plans were to keep people straight. That link can be found here...

Hey James, I'd hold off on buying the gears, go though Sunfire if you plan on having them do the work. Most shops wont warranty the work unless you buy the gears from them, and you don't want 4 Wheel Parts doing that work, they *** rape you on labor.

Well, next time you are up there, do me a favor and find out if they sell Superior? If they do, then no problem. If not, then they'll be installing the gears I bring in.

Good advice - thats what I did, I bought my gears from 4 Wheel Parts who also did the install. As far as getting "raped" on labor... It might depend on your shop I guess. I paid $441 for the gear and locker locker install to both axles - less expensive than the other shops I called. They did a good job for me and I am happy with their work.

FYI I did take them my axles off of the jeep which helped my price.

I'm pretty sure they do, but I can ask. I don't know when I'd be back down there again though, it's not exactly close. Any reason Superior only? Why not Spicer as an option?

Yeah, last year when I had my Detroit and new gears installed in the front, the 4WP here charged me $450 in labor, just for the front, and I bought all the parts from them.

Yes, they can get superior, they can get anything you want, Scotts awesome and will do whatever. If you don't request a certain brand he said he usually uses Spicer or Richmond. I had him put Spicers in mine.

Alrighty then, I spose I can wait. Though I doubt they'll get them cheaper than the 169 I found them for. We'll see though. Thanks for the heads up guys.

Oh yeah, I bought my muffler and tip today. I'll be painting the tip. I'll not have chrome dirtying up my pretty Jeep.

I went with the Flowmaster Delta Force Single Chamber Muffler (2 1/2" Inlet x 2 1/2" Outlet) and Flowmaster Rolled Edge Tip (2 1/2" Inlet x 4" Outlet). I've heard the Super 44s and while I like the sound, I just wanted a little more. I've been eyeing this for a while, and after hearing the video for it, I decided I liked it better. I know it wont sound the same as in the video. But worst case scenario, it's a $70 mistake. Not that I want to throw 70 bucks away, but it's not the end of the world. The tip, I can reuse regardless. And really, as obnoxious as I'll be with my train horns, I can't see a little loud exhaust bothering me. For once being almost deaf (Thanks Navy) might give me an advantage.
