today

Installed a Smittybuilt front bumber and winch onto my 2005 unlimited, if anyone does this make sure you install the winch onto the bumper first and connect the black wire to the A terminal before assembling the winch. B oth look great by the way.

Almost done changing front and rear diff fluid. Drained/removed/cleaned/replaced front cover yesterday. Had something come up in the when I was about to begin the rear so that happened today. Will fill up tomorrow after the RTV sets. I meant to take more pictures but I never can manage more than a couple.

Before cleaning obviously


Probably tackle this small job in the spring when it's warmer and easier to work on things. Doesn't leak bad for the time being so I'm not too worried about it.

Awesome. 3400lb TJ, 1400lb trailer, 4800... it's rated 7200lbs.
Electric brakes on the trailer, it stops on a dime.
It has coils with load leveling shocks in the rear.
Drove it 13 hours to Attica with no issue.

There's a bag on the seat though.

that heavy of a load should really be centered over the trailer's axles. :-)

Replaced the drivers door handle on my full door, and took off the mesh top for a best top safari top just for the Arizona winter.
