No kidding, just have to drill some holes and mount the belly pan, then figure out a rear mounting point for the engine skid and that whole project is done. Just gotta dial in the rest of the steering and see how much driveshaft length ive got to play with up front. Hoping i can get another inch or 2 out of it.

I shaved the bottom of the pumpkin like I did the rear but I notched it like a PR axle for a little bit more clearance. This will really lesson the footprint of the pumpkin. I'm thinking I need to do the same for the rear axle. I'm really looking forward to being able to run 620s. ..that'll be awesome!

Thats the same winch i have. Its a pretty damn nice one.

Either one will drag the jeep with the brakes on so it is a moot point I guess. So do I go for looks or efficiency? Oh yeah the Zeon is 400 bucks cheaper.

The CTIs are nice and the line speed is a little more than my Zeon. But for as much as I actually use my winch I couldn't see spending the extra money. I have the Zeon 10s and love it. Very happy with my purchase.

Gunner My very first off road experience was at Anza Borrego for a huge get together, Every thing from Dune Buggys to ConFer Toyotas were running. I was in a really plush Scout. We went everywhere. Must have been about 74 or 75. That Scout was quite the ride. I remember the Chuckawalla Jeep Club was there with all their Cad/Chevy/Olds powered Jeeps. It was a blast.
