You only need to disconnect one side. So just pull one link and stash it in the Jeep until you need to reconnect.

Finished wiring my winch, mounted the remote connection inside for an easy access point. Still waiting on my fairlead so I can finish! It functions now, just can't pull cable yet! I'm waiting for my new bumper cover and grill too, then I will clean everything up and post a few final pictures!

I used this and really like it. Downside was it wanted to come out to thick and clogged the nozzle a couple times and had to put 5-6 coats on but I finally got it the right grittiness for me

Bought the ammo box at the flea market yesterday for a great deal. Makes a good supply Crate/cooler

Just grab the lock and tighten till flush at lock, easiest mod ever! ( if you use pliers put a rag on it, it will scratch up the lock if you don't.

Not on the IFS, the solid rear axle is a different story.

I removed the plastic nob from the rod and matched the size of the hole to a drill bit. I marked the depth with masking tape and drilled out the top of the nob. I stopped just before punching through the top. I re-installed it and tightened it all the way down, now it sits flush
