i just installed a tow hook on the drivers side rear per the instructions on stu's site. should i install one on the passenger side or is one enough? i only ask because it seems like i'd have to remove the plastic end caps off the rear bumper to get the passenger side one to fit...at a 45 deg. angle it pretty much touches the bumper and would make getting a tow strap on there impossible. is one enough?

One is better than none. I did the driver's side first, (harder to install), then decided to put one on the passenger side also. From the factory, TJ's only came with one hook on bottom the driver's side framerail

Really? I found the passenger side harder with the exhaust pipe being somewhat in the way. Well more annoying anyways

Used it to be the DD last night. Had to pull out the my rear cargo rack to fit the seat in. Really was a pain.

I re-enforced the rear crossmember to make the rear swingout more solid, made an air tank out of the rear bumper and made a mounting system for my pull-pal on the on the swing out. I also relocated the quick release mount for my my rear mudflaps. Actually took a couple of days.

Drove it to the grocery store to do groceries. Definitely not the best vehicle for that role but definitely the most fun

Yeah I'm running the stock bumper.. I've never posted a pic of my jeep here but I'll post on tomorrow.. it was a pain to get the hawse mounted to the plate and have the winch fit.. (if I was at the shop I could've done it quicker with a cutting tool) but I had to cut th bolts that go through the front in half as well as the nuts.. let's just say my right arm was tire from the hacksaw. It looks really good.

I just found this thread - I like it!

Its funny you guys mention above about groceries.... on the 23rd of Nov, the wife was wicked sick and this was the shot:


I took that photo and emailed to a jeeping buddy of mine with the caption "seriously, what the f..."




But today, I set up some toolboxes & my recovery gear bag, and mounted the HiLift on the cage using 2-1/8" muffler clamps. Works pretty well, wicked tight with no rattle... too dark for photos though.



New solenoids for the winch arrive Monday, so that's coming up next.
