Looks good! That's on my short list of things to do.

There are so many options to go with, what lights did you wind up using? (Link?)

You think you would notice? You cannot 'notice' a steel line snapping until it's too late. I'm excited for ya, and happy that you were able to show off your winch....it's cool. But here's the thing: You, and whomever stepped over the line while taking video seriously need to take some time and study just how dangerous winch cable can be. Seriously, for your own safety, please! Thanks, and enjoy! Dan

spudley Also installed KC HiLites light tabs on sides of the GOBI rack... trying to decide on the lights... I want something ideal for 'rock lights' but not so bright they are blinding when out using them for area 'camp' lights.

Thanks I will give that a go in the morning

There are several winch safety videos out there. Please watch a few before you use it again.

Thanks! The only difference between people who own Jeeps with chrome and people who own Jeeps without chrome, is people with chrome on their Jeeps don't care if others don't have chrome.

Just sayin'



(for the record, I can get mud and dirt on my chrome just as much as a Jeep without. I just spend more time cleaning it after the ride. Season opener trail run is May 3rd!! Looking forward to it.)

Busted the front windows out of the cab luckily I had my head turned and jumped over to the side! Same rules apply to a winch
