That pretty much nails it. ;)

I use 4 straps. Up front, I attach them at the tow hooks. In the rear, I use the large frame holes.

Two main reasons.

#1: cloth seats are always the right temperature. Leather seats, on the other hand, are always the wrong temperature--they're cold in the winter and hot in the summer. I end up...

It could be the lower hose, but I'd wager it is much more likely to be the radiator itself. To know for certain, you may need to remove the fan shroud and take a close look.

I buy my cats from Don's Hot Rod Shop in Arizona. 800-888-8892. It's been a few years, but I used to buy Products For Power 3" high-flow units for $90.

That is the factory-intended use, yes. However, it is much more commonly used as an anchor point for a bikini top's center strap.

My first thought as well. I'm brand new to ham radio--I haven't even purchased a radio yet--but all of my local ham friends only run 2m or 2m/70cm transceivers in their Jeeps.

THIS. My Jeep's clip was broken when I bought it, so I decided not to bother with replacing it. I even took the prop rod off and threw it in my garage... somewhere.

You will need longer bolts for proper, safe installation of front tow hooks. They attach via the upper bumper bolts--two per hook.

Correct. If they are in your way, they can be safely and easily removed--just unbolt them.

BTW: OP, I think you should ask Santa for an owner's manual, based on all your 'what is this' threads. ;)

Do you want the alarm to go off every time a neighborhood cat jumps inside the parked Jeep? It's something else to take into consideration.

I have a winch cover on my Warn M8000. With it on, my operating temp is no different than with it off, which is no surprise since the cover doesn't block any more airflow than the winch itself does.
