Unless I'm mistaken, that's a smittybilt winch... If so, very strange to spend all that time and money and then bolt a low end winch on

Didn't mean to offend, but it's not exactly the top of the line.

Just seems to me that if you've already spent that much time and money, why skimp there?

Drove it to my camp for some duck hunting.

Earlier in the week I was installing a level for a friend and rolled his tires by it. I think they look pretty good on my jeep! (New Rockstar 2s)

None taken, every winch has their weak point, even the big name brands.

Most often when I use my winch, I'm helping someone else...

Hey if you built it right then you shouldn't even need to use it.

Picked up a couple more pieces to do my lift. All I need now is shocks and sway bar links.

I love hood decals and figured it is a good spot to show off my suspension brand. Also installed my third brake light and a few weeks go painted my hard top!

I finally got around to spraying my frame with the Eastwood stuff. Hopefully the stuff works.

I also ordered a new exhaust system. Mine is still original and coming up on 14 years old. My muffler has been battered to death on Raush Creek rocks, has rusted through holes in it, and all the hooks rusted away years ago. I noticed that the tailpipe on the replacment hangs low and sticks out the back pretty far so I also ordered a turn down pipe to swap in before going wheeling.

Lastly, I ordered new LED lights for the interior to included dash/hvac and courtesy lights. I've had red ones in there for years and they just bore me now so I got all white ones.
