Change in plans!!You won't believe this one. Wife won't ride in Jeep due to someone putting in her head that spacers = deathtrap. So she told me to order proper wheels! Who am I to argue? I placed an order to Northridge and had Dave order me up 5 AEV Savegre wheels. The'll look good tan!!!! Plus she loved them on my black Jeep .

Next month I'll start a thread here about how the JK is unsafe with the Factory Bumpers and how you would be advised to Get a quality aftermarket like the AEV. Just make sure your wife "accidentally" reads it You can thank me later.

I've had spacers on my Yamaha ATV for a year and half.. no problem at all. And that thing has been to hell and back. I don't think spacers are dangerous unless you do a poor job of installing them i.e. torque them incorrectly.

Shut up with the black grill!!!!! Kidding Joel, actually looking into a cheap grill to blackout and bedline. and the winch is the Smittybilt comp series with synthetic line. Got a great deal locally here. Trying to keep down on the weight in front.

One thing that you may want to look at while you're working on the front...make sure you can get the grill off with the winch in place....
