Dempsey's CJ7 Build Thread

So I have started several threads about fairly specific topics but now I am in the home stretch of the project and the work now does not really fit any of the other categories so I figured I would start this one. For those just checking in here are the other threads relating to my build.

Side Panel Install/Paint:
http://www.wranglerforum.com/f10/cj7...ent-72967.html

New Suspension//Axles Swap:
http://www.wranglerforum.com/f10/cj7...all-86521.html

Aussie Front Locker Install:

"Flatty" Fender Install:

Tonight I finished up my winch mount/install. It is a standard cj warn winch mount. I modified the ends so I could add tow hooks. This turned out to be a bigger job that expected. But everything lines up nice and bolts down creating a super strong frontend. I still need to wire the winch but that can wait.
