Im only 5'10" I think you would have to try it. I have it adjusted forward after playing with it to find where i like it. I am more comfortable now with it

jdesmul I have the Hard Rock edition and wanted to keep my factory bumper for now. I think that if I relocate the solenoid, I think, (hoping), I can mount this winch internally in the bumper.

This bumper requires Part # 82213840, winch mount kit because the bumper is "winch capable", not winch ready. Found it for $388 on Mopar online. It's $450 at Quadratech.

dealerjoe Depends if you're the type that has one in your house. Hope to never use it but could be a huge $100 investment. Vehicles create an immense amount of heat, and that is when everything is performing as intended. Add to that the fact that on average you're carrying ~20 gallons of fuel with a low flash point being transferred through a $10 fuel line. It's just cheap insurance. No one wants to watch their rig burn to the frame when out in the middle of nowhere. Plus there could be other times it would come in handy, like wheeling in those western states or anywhere exceptionally dry. Exhaust pipes could catch some tall grass on fire and with an extinguisher handy it's no big deal, without one it could literally start a forest fire. In the end it's to each their own...

jdesmul 1. it's a cheap
2. it kinda looks cool
3. I carried one in case something that I did on the trail caused a brush fire. Jeeps don't really catch on fire more often than any other vehicle that I know of :-)

A lot of Orv parks that let you wheel there legally require you to carry specific items on your jeep for insurance purposes. Fire extinguisher being one of them.

I was looking at that exact winch earlier.. Think I'll go back and buy it at that price

If it's glare from anything coming off your hood, it will help. It's like eyeblack for vehicles. Especially effective for light colors - it makes a big difference.

Went in the Honda, took about half a tank. Nice drive with the wife, met a fellow Jeeper and shook his hand. Checked out his excellent JK.

It isn't always about saving a buck.

Also, these would have cost a lot to ship as they are pretty large and heavy. And shipping could have caused damage. My way saw them going from his hands to mine.

Bought a set of 2 door Rubi Rails to fill in the gaps of my Ace sliders. Should look great after I have cleaned them up and bedlined them! I will post a pic soon.

I just got home from a six hour drive. It is after 1:00 AM. I am shot. But the drive was worth it as these things are NOT easy to find around here. (I have checked CL at least four times a week for the past eight months.) You occasionally find a set of JKUR rails, but not the 2 door variety, and I wanted mine to be the correct length when I got them, not after I hacked on them.

A bit of elbow grease with a good wire wheel, some Rust-Oleum Rust Reformer paint and some Rust-Oleum rattle can bedliner and these will complete the look of my JK sides with protection strong enough for anything I will ever put it through. (I seriously beat on my TJ, but my JK gets treated more gently as it is my DD. I only off road it about one weekend a month except in the deep of winter. It is my baby...)

As I said, pics later. Maybe tomorrow. But I need blessed unconsciousness for eight hours.

Goodnight, guys...

I think the dead pedal especially makes a difference for those with shorter legs. I'm kinda "torso tall" and love my dead pedal! Resting my foot on the floor had my creaky arthritic ankle at an uncomfortable angle. The MORE pedal sets the angle just right and feels rock solid. It's a simple and affordable upgrade.
