got the bumper and winch on looks / works great while I had the old bumper off I found the plugs for the factory fog lights for the bumper and I am going to wire the 2 procomp (KC covers) lights that are above the winch to that switch to take some of the load off the other one and so that I can drive with them on legally lol!

right out of the box-



mounted the winch to the bumper before I put it on because it didnt seem like it would be possible to get the bolts in when it was mounted



old bumper off


mounted

ya, VERY small ones in the tube fenders, pretty much useless but they get it legal, I was honestly thinking about buying some JK ones (like they have in the grille) and putting a set on the ends of the bumper, like I said its "legal" right now with those but I feel like a dick when someone is waiting on me to go straight when I am turning but they cant see my blinkers lol


you can see them in this pix-

doing some late night painting lol, finally repainting the interior and I had to cut the old tail lights out (as I made the stupid mistake of painting them in place) and repainted around them, also got my new hybrid tail lights all wired up just need to wait for the paint to dry (2morrow) and put them plug them in and bolt them in place, the interior is going to be so much nicer
