Thank you

The engagement lever is easily accessible. I was worried about that too, so I emailed superwinch and they told me this winch could be powered out all day long with no adverse affects. You can see the whole winch and lever if you just look up in the bottom grille (Where the factory tow hooks would be).

I have a tree saver and snatch block on the way. I really want to see how powerful this winch is... I'm curious if it will drag my jeep across pavement if I stand on the brakes.

I used a 3/8 spot weld cutter from harbor freight. It worked great to cut out the 30 or so spot welds that hold the front crossmember on. On a side note now that the matrix mounts to this new 1/4" steel crossmember I feel that the front end of the jeep and matrix are significantly stronger than they were.
