Really clean install in the cabin I like it. Do you have any more pictures of the winch install from the front or mounting points? Thanks in advance.

I followed Omelet's hidden winch build thread, it won't let me post the link from my phone but it's easy to find. Here are a few pics of the mount.

Im already down to a third of that can lol. Might end up spraying the grill with it also since I messed up a previous project and never got around to sanding it down for repaint

Speaking of sanding did you have to sand or do any prep work on that rear step pad?

I sanded it with 400 grit but I don't believe I had to. It says to mostly do sanding on glossy areas or places with clear coat. I'm overly happy with how it came out and some random XK owner already noticed it at the gas station.

The Amsoil gear oil and Slip lock stuff mmade one hell of a difference, so much smoother. Makes me wonder if the prior owner ever serviced the rear end and if they added an additive.

OEM 245's they were on my buddies wj and only had 5000 miles on the set (came with the wheels) but I'll tell you what, I though for sure they would ride more like a beefy mt looking at the aggressive tread pattern but they are quiet and ride just as nice as the road tires that were on my oem. I'm doing an OME lift is winter and will move these tires to my oem wheels and go somewhere close to 32".

I was thinking about getting these tires as well, I wonder how they are in snow for daily use.
