thanks i wanted somthing that had recovery points and didnt kill the approach angle, plus with the zj rad swap there is more room to mount a winch high and tight in between the frame rails and i made the bumper in way that i could do that later.....i dont have any finished pics of swap but heres what i have so far, like i said this swap puts the rad inside the frame rails and you have to use a ford efan for the clearance ill get finished pics soon and maybe ill go into more detail with writeup well see

Thanks. Was going to try to get it done last weekend but called into work. Glad it's done. Still might have to adjust the height. Opened up the one headlight as well, and finally replaced the defective reflecting bowl, so headlight are back to normal again as well.

Thing I could do now though, is put a light around the fog in the old housing. Not sure if I will or not. Just something to think about though.

It's a lightwing from CARR. http://www.carid.com/universal-off-r...g-5158141.html

Fits better on the limited bumper as it doesn't have the bumperets (they'll force it to sit higher) and the bolts can't screw into the crossframe as they should. I ended up using a piece of 1.4" lexan behind it. Worked great. Been on for over a year and a half and has held up well.

Stig's couldn't be any better, imho. If AP can just make a duplicate, that would be awesome

Edit:
Actually Overland_03 was making some that personally are the best looking to me, but a little too expensive when I'm having to rebuild my engine at the moment. This is a good second

Interesting. I've never had this issue. RPM's go like any other gear. I did adjust my kickdown so that I don't get the drop in power between 1st and 2nd though.
