Tore apart my winch today.
Motor is in good condition
Planetaries were dry of grease and starting to show a bit of wear so I greased them and counted the reduction.
156:1 Interesting, seems the only difference between the M6000 and this MX6085 is the width of the drum.
Anyway, seems my lack of power must be coming from the jeeps electrical system. Afterall at #6000 the winch is pulling 450 amps! So I'll redo the grounds, cram a bunch of battery in there, clean up the noid pack, maybe upgrade the alternator, and always carry a snatch block.

I'd have pictures of the winch all torn apart, but the JF app is down!

Yeah I just forgot mine that day,
I haven't looked into it much, but it should fit in there, it's just going to be very tight!

Thanks man! Yeah they leveled it out nicely, still have a bit of a rake though.

Sorry about sideways pictures; my phone is ghey.

I spent a lot of time preparing my frame to accept the aftermarket bumper from Besrk. I stripped off the rust and primed and painted it then had to clean the threads to accept new bolts. I did about 1/10th the work you did but it seemed like it took forever. Good luck, nice build.

Oh it definitely took forever! Haha Thanks

Caliper drug to the point of almost locking up today. Got off the freeway and limped home at 20.
Parked until I can redo the front brakes.

Remans are cheap and these might be under warranty. Not the first instance of sticky brakes in this thing.

I picked the YJ because: Topless, manual, FUN, lower miles, better MPG.
Above is after i exchanged the super top for a factory top, switched the full doors for half, and exchanged the worn out BFG ats for new Federal ATs and stock jeep rims. (We had a parts jeep at the time) I then changed the Transmission brass milkshake and just did a general tune up.
Shortly after I picked the YJ my father bought this:



The Chevy was sold shortly after and in all honesty it felt like a family member died. I still have the slight regret of picking the Jeep.

on my way home from installing some TJ flares I picked up for $50 I had the hood fly up at 55-60mph. I then found out my brakes pull to the left as I locked them up flying into on-comming traffic! Keep in mind this was all within 3 months of getting my Jeep and license. (IIRC)




After that I just drove it for about a year. Also I only put like 5k on it that year!
Then my friend got into off-roading and we took his pathfinder to walker valley.


That whole trip I was even more pissed at my beaver shackles then normal. So I saved up some pennies and priced out an OME lift.
Got the lift springs from a Quadratech Rep on here for $440 to my door. 14F/36R Looking back now I should have definitely gotten 36Rs all the way around.

Still the best mod I ever did to my YJ! Those shackles should have been hucked in the ocean! So I sold them to a sucker for $40.... Then my old springs for $160. OME lift for $240?
Next Wheels! I hunt craigslist 1-3 times a day. So I scored these guys for $25! 2 of the rims were bent.

Ordered some new ones from summit and bam wheels and tires for $250.

Flexed it out to see how bad it rubbed:


That's a yes!
Built a hand throttle for $10:


Another brilliant mod! So I had to go test it out right!?
~~oh but wait!~~
Bought a lunchbox for the front axle only to find out the guy didn't know what he was selling. Returned for a loss of $10

and replaced some wiper bits with a Wipeboy kit (poop)

Went back to walker with the pathfinder owner, who broke down; a lot.



This is easy valley connector lol!

Slowest sketchiest and funniest drive home ever in the history of my wheeling life. The pathfinder was on craigslist before we left walker...

He also blew a tire that day which we patched 3 times.
A month after that I got the itch to go wheeling again so I hooked up with zte87 for my first real trip at walker!

I'll let you pop over to his build thread for more pics and info on that trip!

I picked up an AC compressor and began my OBA (still in progress)

I also picked up some brand new KCs for $25 and went out with Zac again.

Hahaha true, but your arms are a lot bigger than mine as a result. XD
Thanks man; that's the result of driving anything since I was 5.
I've seen your skills increasing these past few trips!
