new toys
well im excited today i get to install my winch and a trailer hitch(gotta pull my atv)

i will post up some pics later today but since im mounting the winch up to my factory front bumper is there any mods i should know about to possbily help prevent theft??? if you ask me its pretty heavy to come up remove all of those dang bolts and carry it away lol but people will do anything i guess.

well thanks for the advice.

Try using locknuts. Those seem to be the hardest darn things to get off even if you weren't trying to steal it.

well got it all done. took about 3 hrs total with one trip to the parts store needed a torx 55 for the tow hook removal. had a 50 and 60 lol but no 55. it looks awsome (will post up later) sagged the front about .75-1'' but i will fix that next month with a lift and bigger tires. i kept the stock bumper moved the fog lights to the outer rear most hole on each side (where the end caps were held on) and flipped the orginial tow hooks around and reused them. im very happy with the look and hope i only ever have to use it on others never me :)

thanks all

congrats on the new toys. but if you don't have to use it on yourself, you're obviously not wheeling hard enough!!! :D

Mans best friend may be a dog...but a jeeps best friend is definately a stout wench. Or someone else who has one lol.
