How do you release the winch with the plate in place?

There is a vendor, moparonlineparts.com, that should be able to get you a good deal on the manuals, although I could not seem to find them on their site.
Agreed. I would think that both Haynes and Chilton will be coming out with the 12-13 manuals shortly. I can tell you I could not live without my Haynes manual for my YJ...lifesaver!

Who's the clown at BFGoodrich that came up with this tread design?
No offense, but maybe you need some highway tires. Mud terrains do that. The KM2 design is a fantastic design, the voids self clear mud and snow like no other tire I've ever ran. If you think these grab a lot of pebbles, you should try the BFG AT's. Those things are like rock velcro.

Doesn't look like you can. The stealth look "looks" cool, but seems very impractical. You also can't see how the rope is winding with the cover on. I guess you could just pull the plate when you go wheeling, and leave it on the rest of the time. It would provide nice protection for the rope when it's not in use.

The same clown that's stuck on raised white letters...

This appears to be the release lever in this photo...

Thanks for the knowledge! Just talked to my parts guy and he is checking on the manual. Will post what he tells me when he calls back.

original KM didn't do this at all. I was partial joking as I do feel the difference between the two in the rain and I can see the difference in the tread design. I'm sure snow will even be better. Still an annoyance though with the stones.

This was my 1st question as well but Xtreme Outfitters does not miss anything! Top Knotch Shop! The pictures do not do it any justice it looks even better live. And everything is fully functional! And the Wireless Remote is way "cool" as well...

BG, the heat shield was the one I was considering, but buying too many other toys has to let the wallet cool a bit! :-)

Will any type of stinger or winch guard loop fit on the 10a bumper?

I bought this one from Maximus-3. You can buy it seperatly, but I got it with a kit that came with the grill guard, the winch plate, light brackets and the winch.

It just bolts on, but there are brackets that attatch it to the frame. It's very solid and the color matches the bumper very well.

Hey guys, just bought an Anvil 10th Anniversary Unlimited. I really like it. I was reading through the posts, does anyone know how many of these 10A they are going to make? Does the plate in the center of the dash reference a specific number (i.e. 10 of 2000)?

No number plates. Rumored to be a 5000 units in US release. Everyone should have one, the world would be a happier place! :-). Mine is awesome!

Anyone have any luck tracking this leak down?

Also I am finding the foam weather strip is completely saturated with water where the freedom panel sits in the rubber gasket.



Attachment 260572
Picked up my 10A in April. I had the same issue on the passenger side door and a smaller issue on the drivers side. Water was running down inside the door and leaking into the jeep at the bottom of the door. Dealership found missing weather strips on both doors, foam was installed but weather strips were missing. Installed new weather strips and foam in each door, problem solved.

New member to the forum but have been following since January. 10A 2 door billet and loving it!

I will be picking up my Jeep within the next week or so. I heard that there is a check list floating around of deficiencies. Does anyone know where I can find one?

Thanks for the info. I noticed that some of you guys are running the metal crafters grill inserts. Anyone else using anything different that is not as expensive, but looks similar, or as nice.
