Received my Rugged Ridge 8,500 lb Winch with synthetic line from RockRidge4wd on Monday. Got around to registering it today. Now that the King of the Hammers is over Poison Spyder may actually have time to ship my Brawler Bar Bumper to put it on.

Received my Rugged Ridge 8,500lb winch with synthetic line from Baseline 4x4 Outfitters. Other side of the world in four days and fitted already. Brilliant service.

Cool! I'm up in Youngstown close to Lake Ontario. Where this morning I literally had to throw the Jeep in 4WD just to get down my ice covered driveway without sliding. Too bad I had to throw it back in 2WD since the roads were completely clear (though I guess there's something to be said for the 70 billion tons of salt they spread on them each winter).

Noticed my seat making rattle noises so I checked it out when I got to work...I guess one of the bolts worked its way out then fell out through one of my drain holes

All the bolts were there when I had all the seats out a few months back...

I installed 7 of the 8 new LCA ends I got from teraflex but there is one heim refusing to unscrew so I'm going to pb it everyday for the next week and try again on my next day off... Fortunately the heim that's stuck isn't one that was warn out and the jeep now rides like its brand new

Discovered a new noise it happens when I'm coming to a stop right when the transmission shifts into the lowest gear I get a very quiet click like its not smoothly coming from second to first. Its just a single click and it's very quiet but still bothersome. Anyone know what it could be?

Thanks for posting the pictures! I was wondering what the green LED's would look like. It's either going to be these or the soft whites after the bonus comes in this year

Be forewarned that they are BRIGHT! They don't dim, either. I got the 3 led bulbs, you might consider some that aren't as bright. I've only driven around town a little bit this evening, but they seemed to be just a little bit brighter than I like.

Studied every page of my spring catalog from Qtec (as if I didn't already have their entire inventory memorized) and added a couple items to the running wishlist... My wife calls it my "jeep porn" lol.

Made an On Board Air system with the help from Harbor Freight. I got the 12V 150 psi pump and bolted it to the unused ABS plate under the hood.

Actually yesterday. Backflushed my heater core. Nasty crap. Got heat now, but the task made me spend more money on the Jeep. Today ordered a new radiator, belt, and water pump.

It has aligator clips to hook up to the battery when you need to use it. I wouldn't leave it hooked up when not in use though. The battery cables and the air hose all fit nicely in between the pump and the inner fender for storage.
