That's pretty cool if it doesn't need a winch mounting plate. Looks like it doesn't. Is it all hollow? You could drill and tap a couple of ports, and use it as an on board air tank if it's sealed.

It's not sealed, but has reinforcements welded in. And, yeah no mounting plate needed and even has two battery lead holes drilled through the rear flange to help control the cables

So does the winch fit entirely inside the bumper? Are all the cables protected from the sun when installed? That's my biggest complaint with my winch is that the cables are all exposed to the sunlight. Haven't come up with a fix for it yet.

The winch sits on the bumper. I'm not sure about the cables, I do not own a winch! Haha

But enough of the radiator is covered as it is. A cover would just cover more, and create a sort of spoiler in front of the radiator. Maybe not?

its not really an issue. On my old 2000 i had an electric fan and the relay would some times come loose. I wouldnt notice it on the road but did jump up 10 degrees over my thermostat rating off road at a crawl. The cooling system is pretty good for the jeeps. I mean look at the new cars these days the opening for the radiator on some is almost the size of a shoe lol.

I've done tons of dumb crap to cars that's how you learn. The first time I flushed a trans a over filled the fluid and figured it would be fine. I was wrong and ruined a newly rebuilt th-400. When I wired my truck the first time I bought a crappy kit from china, figured my needle nose pliers would be good enough for the whole job and ended up with more electrical problems then I had before I wired it. The first motor I rebuilt I had to disassemble and reassemble 7 times because I wasn't getting any oil pressure. Turns out the oil pick up was to low in the pan and no oil good get in the pick up. Then I still didn't have pressure and found out there is a piece of cardboard that comes with a new pick up that keeps debris from getting in. Live and learn.

Oh and my Dad and friends have never let me forget it.

This I agree with! Powr does have a thought process like a teenage girl. I seem to remember him talking about wearing skinny jeans and we all know that guys should not be wearing nut huggers. I bet he likes Justin Bieber, does the duck face in pictures, and can shake his *** like a stripper.

Thank you mr *********************for selling something on craigslist. Saying that it was mine, then not answering emails or phone calls and taking the add down. Pretty stand up dude. I hope that I come across you on the trail sometime broken down so I can laugh at you... granted the type of person to do this probably does not know what a trail looks like. Daily rant complete!!
