    I drilled holes in the mirror relocators i talked about in earlier posts. Inserted a pin and now have a quick detach pin. I did it to keep em from rotating cus the crappy design on the aftermarket brackets but i like being able to take mirrors off so easily. Pics to come

    How do you like the Ranchos compared to the Pro Comps? I ran Pro Comps around 15 years ago, and they were pretty rough.

    The Ranchos are awesome. The pro comps were definitely too stiff.

    In other news I muffed up my front end pretty good. My axle has been in an axle shop for about a week and a half now. I ordered a new bumper too. Pics to come

    It's the rugged ridge XHD modular bumper. I ordered the bull bar and tube endcaps as well.

    These mods definately void the manufactures warranty . Too bad , that's what they get for selling it to a four wheeler . Yuppies could go drive a Mini Cooper , we drive jeeps and we use them . I totally dig the front armor and I side with you to mount a winch. There's been discussion recently on winches but for your JK , theft deterrent should also be a consideration. Good to be prepared .
    Never overlook the obvious . It's usually right in front of us

    I've decided to not go with a winch. For me a high-lift can accomplish anything I'd need a winch to do. I'm throwing a chain and a come-a-long in the back too.

    I've used a recovery strap more than a winch, but I have had to use a winch and I think winches are worthy of purchase.

    Oh no doubt, but I get off road very few times a year and if you're not offroading very often some purchases can go to waste. I don't think that right now my amount of offroading warrants a winch

    I finally installed that roof rack. This will make it easier to move that kayak. One day a roofrack tent would be sweet. It's slowly coming together
