I'm planning on adding a winch,...

I have a 2005 LJ, and love it, its my daily driver. The ONLY thing I would like better would be a 2006 LJ Rubicon. One year newer, and Rubicon underpinnings.

I own an LJ, and love it - lots more room for passengers and cargo. Driveline wise, longer rear shaft, which makes it easier on driveshafts when lifted.

drop the air to 15-20 psi, don't go wild on the throttle, and coast to a stop, use no brake. Wheel spin on sand just makes you go down.
