Thanks man, that does look pretty good...I think the curved ends are what I'm not crazy about and why I didn't order the rails in the first place, so maybe I will get them and shorten a little...decisions decisions

Then painting the forward facing flat parts on the quarter panels & hood a matching black too. Maybe taking the curved parts of the hood and paint them black and have them fade to grey as they get flat toward the windshield. Could be just crazy thinking too...
I did that with my Bumpers, bed lined 'em... I haven't built up the guts to do the sides yet, it would be harder to redo if i don't like it. but i like the look of the black bumpers. everyone thinks there steel!

Yeah, I wasn't real worried over $15 the way I see it, it has a warranty and a good name behind it, it's not the best but it's better than nothing! In gonna give this one a shot and upgrade later if needed.

Thanks! I built the hidden mount a few months back, just never had the cash to buy a winch. Hopefully I will get it on tomorrow.

Yeah but shipping info shows it in route today. I think I'm going to take off work early today and start putting it on! (what a great reason to leave work on a Friday?)

I also have to have a couple buddies help me, I only have the use of one hand for another 6 weeks so I can't lift the winch in place alone I should have it on tonight, I will let you know how it goes. It's an understatement to say I'm excited about finally having a winch again !

I think you live right over near me. I see your truck(or one that looks like yours) on Eola a few days a week. I live at Hafenrichter and Barrington. If that is your Jeep, it's a good looking ride. I just ordered up a 2" lift, larger tires and few other goodies for my black Laredo.
