Brown Santa showed up today;

My winch came in so I figured i'd go out after work & mount it up.



Mounted up



I ran the power & ground up under & through the grill & exited behind the passenger headlight. From there, I ran it right to the battery.

Plenty of clearance between the grill & the back of the winch. All I have to do now is zip-tie the wires together so they don't rub the grill.



Other goodies came if from Amazon.



RTIC Cooler, some tubs for dry storage, and other camping supplies. My buddy & I are heading down to the Bantam Jeep Festival in a couple of weeks.



Builds:
2002 WJ-ARB's f/r, swapped D44A, 4.5" Clayton, 33" SST Pro's, winch, armor, and other doo-dads

So got the front end buttoned up for now, still have to go through everything & double check that everything is tight.

Started working on the rear this afternoon after work, Mehhh, didn't have much luck, some bolts were seized up pretty good & I didn't have the correct sockets for my impact. I'll head over to Lowes tomorrow & buy what I need along with some more BP Blaster.

Just to get an idea of what it'll look like when she's all lifted



Some more goodies showed up today from Barnes4x4

New Track bar bolt & nut



Also picked up some of their 1/2" Bolt Protectors for the skid.





They are really nice. I think i'll go with the UCF Ultra High Clearance Skid so the protectors will work nice with that.

I added the Barnes 4x4 stickers to my pile, can't wait till I can use em..



My packet of info just came for Bantam next month. This will be my first time going down to Bantam for the festival.

***** anyone have any tips on getting the Torx bolt out of the rear Track Bar? Those Torx bolts are going to be the death of me! *****

The bolt protector, never seen that before. Pretty cool idea to protect the head of the bolts from rocks on the skid plate.

They're machined really nice too. For the price you can't beat them!
