If you're working the clutch hard it's time for 4Lo. Another source of that smell is mud on hot exhaust parts. Your clutch is probably ok.

Winches mount with four so that won't work. Don't drill it without consulting the manufacturer. Winches pull hard and that bumper may not take it. Failure in use would be very, very, bad.

Hi,

I've managed to mangle the connector for the AM/FM antenna in my 2010 JKU. It happened trying to gently shove my Avic930 and it's many wiring harnesses in to it's finished position. Even...

I have run the winch hard enough to see the charge light come on. At that point it's probably past time to let the winch motor cool down while the battery charges back up.

I did a similar project with masonite and metal studs. It's strong enough to support some luggage but weak enough to crumple in a rear end collision. Solid wood could push that back seat in a wreck.

FRS, GMRS, and CB work fine for a group that is close together. CB radio is commonly used by jeep clubs and some off road parks. All of these suffer from terrain effects. If there is a hill or...

My first thought on any electrical weirdness is bad ground. Power wants ground and when it can't get there the right way it goes through other circuits the wrong way.

Good luck.

For the 4 door version, stand on the back seat and reach over the roll bar to pull it up. I can raise it from the side but it's much harder. Most days I only open the sun rider.
