Thanks! I used 4 coats of rustoleum auto primer, and then 4 coats of rustoleum satin black. It comes out with the perfect finish.

I'm considering cloaks for my JK and would like to save some money and paint myself and yours look really good in the pics for a rattle can spray job.

I'm not one to really brag but I do consider myself to be pretty good with a rattle can.

On another note, with the below freezing temps we have been having here in Michigan, ice tends to build up on my wiper blades. What a pain in the ***. Today, I adjusted my wiper blade arms and moved them up a notch. It seems that the wipers weren't being hit by the defroster. I will know tonight whether this makes a difference or not

My dash mounted winch control came in today, maybe if the snow ever let's up, I'll install it.

They also offer a wireless control as well if you're interested. Mine was $42 shipped to my door. Not sure what it would cost up there in Canada.

You got that right. I am hoping to get a better paying job so I can afford a Jeep, cause those things aren't cheap

Thanks to Jake(youreverydayXJ) I installed my in cab winch control. After a lot of four letter words and adult beverages, it works. The directions are very vague. After blowing 9 "20"amp fuses, we ended up finding our own way around the winch. If you ever do an in cab winch control for an XRC8 just keep in mind, the green wire is your "out" control, and your blue wire is your "in" control. After all that work we ended up tearing through his field to try to get stuck to try the control out, but neither of us could get stuck. Then I realized how cold it really was out. Apparently photobucket changed and it wont let me upload some pics...
