few questions

Since the off road rigs I have driven in the past were built already and my mechanical knowledge was mostly track cars I have a few questions on my jeep build.

I just got my warn winch and I'm waiting for my bumper to show up, is there a relay or a switch I could add to turn power to the winch on and off from the cab? We had something like that on our brush truck in the fire dept.

I'm torn between the rough country 2.5 progressive suspension kit and their 4" n2o kit they just put out. I do mostly highway driving with q weekend or 2 hitting some trails in the woods with the kids. I'm thinking 31" tires would the 4" be a bit much for that? Thanks for any suggestions

Yep, use the search function and you'll find quite a few in dash control set ups for winches.

And yep 4" lift might be too much for 31's. Though a good excuse for bigger tires and gears.

97 Sahara, 74 Renegade, 72 CJ5, 55 Willy's (the Beast) Boss 302, 6:34 gearing, Bose 901 speakers.
God I miss that Jeep. Forgot the kinda Jeep, 80 SX4.

Na don't want to big and gears I got about an 80 mile round trip 6 days a week. Need to keep some mileage but where I work is surrounded by ground higher then road and rivers Irene put a hurt on getting anywhere and sucks in snow as well. That mini panel on the link looks just what I want thanks
