I have both. 2000 Sahara and 2014 JKU. I would agree with tkfx - parts are more numerous and cheaper for the TJ, and I think you can do "more" to customize it than you can with the JK. (just my...

I have two Warns on my two Jeeps - well, one on each. On my TJ I run a Warn PowerPlant HD (12k lbs w/wire rope.) It's surprised me with its capability. The one on my JKU is a Warn VR10000S - just...

Mine have the Rough Country end caps and my winch is mounted behind the bumper - no visibility except the fairlead coming out of the front of the bumper between the LED fogs.

I ran directly to the battery on the advice that it needs "clean" power. The hardest part was finding a way through the firewall. Hooking up to the battery is easy - red is positive, black is...

Love my Metalcloaks. Great upgrade for me. The reason I chose them was because there was no cutting or fab work required.

Well, I don't think I'm comparing apples to apples here, but when I drive my JKU completely disconnected, I can hit a deep wash and not feel anything until my back wheels hit it. On the TJ, it just...

Metalcloak says you can run 35's with no lift with their fenders. However - you'll have absolutely no room for up and down travel and I think it would look a little funny - almost like a low rider.

Sorry Hosejockey, you were correct - I enlarged the pic and can see the scratch marks now. However - it looks like that goes up a around 6 or more inches. The amount I'd need to cut to keep it just...

Thanks Jerry - I was hoping that you'd answer. I consider you the de facto expert on the AR. If I shorten by a few inches (max) will I notice any difference in the behavior of the AR?

No, I'm not...

Not to answer your question, but check out Metalcloak's quick discos. They're more than half the price of the JKS.

Currie AR arm question

I've been running my Currie AR on my TJ for a few months now, and I'm not 100% sure I have it installed right. I *know* it's not the same as being disconnected (I am running it in the last hole) but...

I have exactly the same setup - and we've discussed doing the cut in the bumper cap like you did. I don't know if I care enough to do it. I thought about getting the really small LED's that you can...

Thanks again Jerry. I think I'll go with 80' of Viking line just to be safe. I wonder if the added 20' compresses more than wire allowing it to spool more on, or is the engineer in me thinking too...

Thanks Jerry. I was hoping you'd chime in. I was thinking Viking rope. If I'm not mistaken, I have 80' of wire - would 100' of rope work just for the added insurance?

My winch has an issue :(

My TJ has a Warn PowerPlant HD (12,000 lb.) winch on the front. It's around 4 months old. The heavy wire rope has been a pain in my rear since I bought it. It's hard to handle and very hard to wind...

Just my $0.02 (not even really worth that.)
