Good idea!! That's why I always put an extra pull string in when I'm fishing the tight spots!!!
Actually I originally pulled it to the front. Its in the same loom ad the bass speaker I'm relocating to the cab.
Thanks 1Topp!!

Ok so I put the interior back together after installing the roll cage. The plastic surrounding the windshield requires some cutting. And the roll bar padding has to be cut and tucked. The new sound bar saved a lot of time!!

Also added the Fab Fours rock sliders. The nutsert toll I bought was a life saver! If you ever used the tool that most manufacturers give to instal the anchors then you know that they are a pita! Sliders are solid!!

Ok a few pics. The first you can see that due to the size etc the Warn Zeon does not fit standard winch plates. I had to modify it a bit. You can check that out here! http://www.wranglerforum.com/f33/mak...er-208147.html


Now a pic as I was dryfitting. You can see how winch is offset



Second the cut and drilled plate going back together


Third is a plate Im making to fit the fairlead in the center of the guard

OK! The half top still isnt painted but the ETA is late next week!! The Pure Jeep stubby rear bumper and tire carrier is due in by freight next week. I just sent a bunch of parts out for powder coat but Ill suprise you on what the two major parts are. They will change the look of it a bit. So heres an updated pic of what the front will look like when the fairlead plate I had to make is powder coated!!

The Zeon winch is being sent back via Warn due to untightened bolts on the gear and clutch compartments. I tried to tighten my self but they told me not to and they want it for quality control issues. heres a few pics!!!

Couple problems arose. Tried doing an all american build but.....
Warn Zeon came with loose bolts on the motor and gear covers. I tried to tighten and they creaked as if they were going to snap. Called Warn and they wanted it back to give to quality control . Waiting on new winch.
Pure Jeep rear bumper came and it was a mess. The front bumper came vaulted in spray foam. The rear which is heavier came with a squirt or two and stuff jarred loose and scratched the hell out of the powder coat!!
How do they ship them from china and are perfect yet mine comes cross country and is wrecked?? Time to shop for new rear bumper.

Thanks!!! And mines out of college!!! As for the tan rims, I wiped them down(they were black) with liquid deglosser. Sprayed with the tan base coat from automotivetouchup.com. Then cleared!! Held up very well!!
