So far so good. Has a nice throaty sound on acceleration. I have only had it in since last PM so it is too early to tell as far as gas mileage improvements.

So how many of you 10A owners are going to be selling your front bumpers...? I have been looking everywhere for one.

Not this one. They're one of my favorite features of this model.

Bout once a year... haha. Not much more needed w the covers in place. The reds were absolutely baking in the sun. I was afraid of a florescent orange by the end of the summer.

Today I mounted my fairlead. I had nothing else to do and was tired of staring at it in the shop! I'm expecting the M-3 winch plate to be shipped out next week.

This shows just how off center it is. Thanks Chrysler.

Which is why I'll be getting the Maximus-3 winch and cutting the hole to be centered per their instructions ;-)

Because the "official winch" is a Warn 9.5cti, which has an off center drum. Short-sighted in my opinion, but it is "what is".

Yeah, I agree. I guess I have to look at the pics a little closer to see this off-centered drum. Thanks for the explanation.

Installed a set of Trucklites and RI Duallys with the fog light kit. This kit is not plug and play on our bumpers..fabricating a bracket is necessary

That is so tight and clean it almost looks fake. Why aren't all winches installed like this?

Has anyone installed the AEV Tire carrier? Does the wheel stay in the center or is shifted to right?

The Daystar are stock-like, but a significant improvement over stock.
