Home made steel bumper w/ rugged ridge shackles.
We're just about done building a winch plate for it. Had designed and built it for a smaller winch but ended up getting a EnGo 12,000lb free w my TJ so had to redesign it to fit the bigger winch.
Bravo! A great tale to tell and wish there was more of it!

We put a year and a half and 3500 dollars into. I wish I wouldn't have sold that truck, or that I could find it again. Anyway sorry for adding to the tangent. Haha
Thanks guys! I thought I might get a little chastised for going off topic like that. Back story - My Dad was 51 when I was born (I was obviously a big oops back then), and to put it in perspective, he was 70 when I was 19. Therefore we didn't get a chance to do a lot of the father son stuff. So, that being said, I probably overcompensate quite a bit with my boys, but it's so worth it as they are not only my boys but my best friends. My best advice, boys or girls ... make the time for stuff like this as it pays back tenfold....or... eventually you'll regret that you didn't.
