For anyone that was following my question in this forum about the hood being all over the place (wobbling, fluttering whatever you want to call it), I purchased the Daystar Hood Wrangler about 35 dollars on quadratec, fixed the problem. Yes I could have done it for 1 or 2 dollars and some zip ties, but I wanted the professional fix. Very easy install, don't regret it for a second, that thing doesn't move at highway speeds anymore. Love it. If anyone else is experiencing it just buy the things, it was on backorder when I purchased and I had to wait a month, but worth its weight in gold now used to bug me to no end.

Along the same lines, I got the Rugged ridge clamps. Very professional grade look and also eliminated the flutter. At $100.00, they aren't a cheap solution.

Learned two important lessons today. 1) Never go wheeling alone and 2) Always have recovery supplies. Ended up getting towed out by a fellow Jeeper. Despite getting stuck and having to wait it was a lot of fun. Next thing on the list is a recovery kit.

Can't wait to get back out on some trails.

Oh man! Get some D-rings shackles and a recovery strap. Next, buy a winch and tree strap and/or anchor. Not yet having a winch is the only thing keeping me from going nuts off road.

There's not much there to hook a winch up too.
I have shackles on mine, but the Rear Bumper is not set up for leaving them on. They rest on the Tube of the bumper.
The storage under the back und is big enough for my 30" strap, shackels and jumper cables.

Is there an issue with them resting on the tube bumper?

I would just get the shackle set up that utilizes the tow hitch. It is a receiver that slides in and made for this set up. I have an aluminum receiver from Factory 55 and then a painted shackle. It looks great for those who will leave them in more times than not and because it is aluminum, it is not cumbersome to store in the Jeep as well.

I'm afraid it would eventually wear into the finish.
I do leave the fronts on for looks.

Has anyone looked at trimming the pinch seam? It looks like we'll have to cut up the rock rails as well for any real benefit.

Also, Warn has a nice recovery kit thats on sale at Amazon for 70 bucks.

Hehe thanks! I ended up getting pulled out by a lifted JK that was sick! I really want a lift now lol. But first I want to learn to offroad stock for a while as I save up for a lift and tires. I'll check out that recovery on Amazon.

@JK I was looking at that recovery kit on quadratec. It looked like it had everything I needed except for the winch or hi-lift

The Quadratec kit for $99.00 seems like a good deal, though I haven't seen the one on Amazon. The line cover is a must for use with a cable. It probably costs $10. The snatch line costs around $25 and you'll need one of those. Two shackles will run another $25 and the tree hugger will bring the value to about $80. The gloves and bag are nice additions, but you probably have some laying around that will work fine. The real value is the snatch block which will run about $80.

Lots of hi lifts out there can be had for ~ $60 at a tractor supply or harbor freight.

The warn kit on Amazon for $70 is for an ATV winch.

I'm looking at the Smittybuilt XRC8 winch and was wondering what winch mounting plate I would need for the Moab's winch-ready bumper.

You need this one:

http://www.aev-conversions.com/shop/...nch-mount.html

Make sure you pick the Moab/COD option as you need the Fairlead plate too since the Moab and COD don't include the Fairlead plate.

Damn, really? Why wouldn't the 'winch-ready bumper' come with a fairlead plate? Interesting.

Crazy for sure. What's worse is since I have a Sahara, I bought mine from an AEV dealer. Because mine is AEV, the fairlead plate is included. But on the COD/Moab don't include it, using 3/4 spacer blocks instead. Also be prepared to remove the bumper to install the winch plate as well.

While awesome to have a $1200 bumper included with thw moab they should've thrown in the fairlead and mounting plate to make it truly 'winch-ready'.

They would rather save money since its not like 100% of the buyers will install a winch.

Will that winch you are looking at fit with the bumper? They recommend the warn 9.5cti I believe.

I'm hoping it will. I'm still researching. Of course they recommend the $1300 winch lol

Comparing the two winches (warn 9.5cti and smittybuilt xrc8) they both have the same bolt pattern of 10"x4.5". The warn winch's dimensions are 23.1"Lx6.3"Dx10.4"H and the smittybuilt is 21"Lx6.22"Dx7.283"H. So the smittybuilt is smaller and has the same bolt pattern so I would think it would fit perfectly.

Yea I'm not to fond of paying $1300 but also don't want to be the guinea pig. I'll probably go over to the aev forum to see what people say. The cod thread didn't have too many people with winches but I did like bull bar mod they were doing.

Don't forget about crash testing... The aftermarket AEV bumper with the fairlead mount never had to get tested. Since they went on production vehicles, the MW3/Moab bumpers had to pass the federal crash tests. Eliminating the fairlead mount may have been required to get it to perform close enough to the stock setup to pass without major changes elsewhere. I'm sure the weight and money didn't hurt, but there may be more to it than just that.

I'm planning on getting the Quadratec Q9500i this spring. At $350. it is supposed to be quite similar in size and performance to the Warm 9500cti.

I love a good baptism. Nice job!

Also, your seats came out awesome. Wish I had a Recliner like that in my Living Room.
