My father in law has a Warn 8274 made for Jeep that he bought back in the mid 80's for a 'yota he had. Sold the truck, kept the winch. Still has it now on a winch mount for a receiver.


Glad y'all made it safe. You know we like pics........

Weather says it's supposed to get nicer and be awesome!

We have some locals down there from fort wayne. Say hi! They are stupid and will park their jeeps on top of eachother. LOL!

Look for jeepuporshutup.com stickers. Thats them. I am SURE they would want to look at the RJ as well.

Have fun and congrats on making it.

That is a beautiful Jeep you have brought back to life. I am still chuckleing about the broom handle though. Nice work you have done.

Love seeing a project get close to being wrapped up. Looking forward to seeing the tire carrier and that 8274 get back to its rightful place.

So, did you paint the rods to look like a weathered old broom handle?!?
