Someone should get a close up of the dash plaque...I'm just curious to see what it says.

Just bought mine a few hours ago, and noticed that. Thought something was loose or something.

Anyone mounted a winch in the front bumper yet? What did it require? Normal winch mounting plate?

Not yet but will soon. I also took my tires from 45psi to 43 which is the recommended psi.

I need to find it again.. I thought I read somewhere that it uses the winch plate from AEV (go figure.. always gotta be top dollar for stuff).. and I think I saw that the Warn PowerHouse (winch/compressor) will not fit in this bumper. Once I find it, I'll pass it on..

Also, for you other 10A owners out there.. are your end caps on the rear bumper "loose"? My driver side one is just a hair loose, and when coming to a stop, that rumbling transfers to that end piece, and inside the Jeep, it amplifies the sound to make it seem that something is about to fall off. I'm trying to find a contact that can see if they make a "flush" end cap piece so that I can take the "extended" end cap off.

The winch plate for the 10A hasn't been released yet from Mopar. There's a company selling a mount plate for it but I can't remember the name. Definitely not AEV.

Yes.. you are correct.. that's what I get for trying to sneak in responses while at work. Maximus-3 and Rusty's Off Road are 2 places you can get the plate at this time. Mopar is supposed to release theirs later this year sometime..

What rear axle ratio do you guys have? I have automatic with 3.73. Already surprised by gas mileage in comparison to 3.21 in my 2012 Sahara.

I wouldn't be surprised if the AEV winch plate works as they have designed the rear bumper to accept the AEV rear tire carrier.

Neutral. Sucked down my 1st free tank of gas really quick. However, I realized mileage should improve some with a few more miles on it. I was thinking of 4.10s but may wait or reconsider.

I like my 4.10s but with the stock tires they really aren't highway friendly gears. Any speed above 100 km/h (a little over 60 mph) and you can watch the mileage dive

Thanks. I really don't plan on going more that 33" anyway so may just keep what I got.
