Oh, and for the eye lids, I just taped off the pattern and sprayed it with rustoleum bedliner....no interference in the beams and the light kinda bleeds through at night.

Looks Good. How do you like the wireless remote on the RoughCountry winch?
You can clean up the look a bit by going to a steel hawse fairlead.

I havent used the winch too much, I just got back from trying to get stuck but failed. Anyways I used the winch just to get acquainted with it and the wireless remote is nice to have.

I had a hard time deciding which to get first, lift, wheels etc...I like my stock canyon rims, tires I got are in decent shape for a good while and I figured if I lifted it, I would only get brave and venture further and further, so a winch was my first choice. Glad I made the decision!!

Good to know. I've been looking at all kinds of aftermarket wheels and I've just about decided to powdercoat my factory wheels and put new tires on them and call it a day.

A winch is like insurance. Good to have, but hope you won't need to use it :)

What winch plate did you use? Flat or raised? How much room do you have between the wires in the back of the winch and the grill?

I used roughcountry's flat tj plate. The wires are touching the grill but not too bad. I can snap some pics tomorrow if you want.

What's the difference between the rough country and warn winch plate? Besides the price. Going to do the same thing but with a grill guard.
