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.

Just put on a 2" OME lift with and a sailcloth top, along with some 31" duratracs. I can't remeber the exact measurments but i raised it a whole hell of alot more than 2", but im happy. i need to get some weight on the back so its not all jacked up.
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).
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.
I'm going to harbor freight today ...so you just wire it straight to the battery?
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.
