Well, the Winch Install didn't happen. Dropped everything off at Autoworks 1, and the RRO Winch Mount did not come with any instructions. By the time they received a fax copy, it was too late to start. So, I go off-roading this weekend without. Sucks.

Here is a (not so great) pic of what it looks like right now.

Same as yours, but I opted for the different center caps. Cost something like $10/ea for these special caps.

I was going to get XD Cranks, but didn't like the center caps. When I saw these, I quickly changed my mind. 1/2 the price too.

See http://www.discounttire.com/images/tkoOptCapLarge.jpg. Have to special order them from Discount Tire.

You have accomplished a lot in a short time, I actually like the look of those wheels in 18's more than my procomp's

Let us know all the parts you bought for the winch could you? I think that will be my next project!

Thanks. Want to be ready for Summer Wheelin, and the Jeep vets need to know I'm serious, or they wont want me tagging along.

Anyway, its not yet on, but have the Rocky Road Winch Mount with Combo Bar, and a Warn Zeon 10S winch. Hope to have it mounted Wednesday. Will let you know how it all fits.

I will once my Prerunner Skid comes in. RRO is over 3 weeks backorder now.

Hopefully, I can get my stuff together for my Wednesday Winch install. Makes me a little nervous plowing though the mud without recovery options. Once on, and some hipwaders in the trunk... you won't be able to identify this rig.

I didn't go back to read the thread again and sorry if you already mentioned it somewhere....but just wondering if you have tested the rubber in the snow / ice? I like both your tires and the wheels but I would hate to slide in the winter. Winters in Vancouver are not as snowy but are more slushy - and it gets very slippery at times.
Thx.
