Or just get the bad *** winch you want and never have to worry about it again leaving you free to think about other things down the road.

If I may ask, how often do you wheel and if so are you the kind of person that crawls threw things or powers threw it no matter what? Also do you get distress calls or make distressed calls?
Well, as far as how often it's normally a couple weeks in between my ventures to trails. It's really a weekend warrior. I want to take it to an org park a few hours away, but most of the trails here are just hunting trails or atv trails that have gotten torn apart. I am leaning toward the warn vr8000 I think. With synthetic line. Then I still get the reliable name. And only spend about 5 bills. A lot of the time we go out together so I havnt been the rescuer yet. At the same time two Guys that I wheel with have winches. Sooo. But I would probably go more by myself if I had one.. What kind of offload lights are you running?

I love the retreads man. The mud terrain pattern is a little noisy, but I expected it. Plus the customer service from tread weight is amazing. I paid 400 bucks shipped to my door. For a brand new set of 265/75. 32.6" tires. Can't beat that. I took them offroad and even with open diffs I was a monster. Climes over down trees with no slippage, all sorts of loose soil/mud. Cleaned well on the highway ride home too and I didn't air down at all. I had one tire with a defect give me a flat my third day with them while I was on the highway. Tread wright sent me a replacement and an extra so I had a full size spare. So now I have a full set of 5 for 400 bucks.im not an elitist so I don't give a damn if "it's not the quietest" or "best performing" I spent 400 on a set an they're great. If I wanted quiet I'd drive a caddy, and if I wanted the best offroad tires I probably wouldn't have a Cherokee because I'd be driving a full on buggy. Long story short. No regrets on the tires, they look great, work great, priced remarkably. Buy them!

Probably thinking KCs when the time comes. American made tops the list whenever possible, but also cool with Hellas if I could find a deal with them down the road. Also just about to order my first set of Treadwrights thanks to, Among others, your good review.

Not to double post

But did you have to move your flux capasider for the new bumper? In the last pic that showed it, it was still on the pass side.

No no! It doesn't bother me at all! I actually responded to your light post. But the thing disnt post. Yeah I had to relocate the vacuum canister. It took all of 25 seconds. The line is long enough to set it right in front of the blower motor no problem.

Wow. It really is my jeeps brother! I like the hood vents turnout. I want todo that to mine. I kind of miss the look of the stock bumper. I get a lot more compliments and head nods with the bumper now. Plus it protects my jewel of the jeep. (The stroker)


Speaking of which here's a video of my stroker with a borla exhaust. Cat deleted

That actually sounds really good. Il going to get a magnaflow high flow cat and a cherry bomb. I had a 2ft cherry bomb on my wrangler and it was actually very quiet. Probably because the power band is low on these engines, I think I might of hit 3k rpm once where cherry bombs really get loud at 4k rpm +. Did you have a shop weld it up? Was you stock downstream o2 location between the cat and muffer?

Yes I had a shop weld it in, I was going to put a magma flow high cat in. But jegs sent the wrong one. Didn't feel like waiting. My power band has changed with the stroker since my cam is so different. I develop max torque (331 ft lbs) at 3000 rpms. I think in the video I took it up to about 4,400 or so.

i want to install new exhaust cat back. Instead of welding a bung in between the cat and the muffler do you think I can get a cat with a o2 bung in it? http://www.ebay.com/itm/Univ-13-x6-5...8175cb&vxp=mtr
