I was going to ask about that. Sure makes it easy but unless the pic is deceiving I'm not sure why the snatch was needed.

Hahaha, actually the winch wasn't needed at all, i was on a recreational 4WD course and they wanted to demonstrate a winch self recovery so they used me and my JKU, best bit was they picked a climb they didn't think i'd get up. once i got to the top the called me a smart arse and then i had to reverse back down so they could do the demonstration. :rock::rock::rock:GO THE JKU!!!:rock::rock::rock:

Umm where to start,

Old man emu 2" lift, Rubicon Express sway bar disconnects, Synergy brake line relocation brackets, 32" Mickey Thompson baja STZ's, ARB front and rear bars, Runva EXW9500 winch, ARB engine skid plate, Smitybilt Sliders, 50" light bar, rigid industries dually spots, rugged ridge alloy bonnet catches & euro light guard kit, MOPAR slush mats, rugged ridge grab handles front and rear, Oricom CB radio, Rugged ridge roof insulation kit and probably more but that will do for now.

still to do:

Xenon flat fender flares, set of 35" muddies to go on spare set of rims for when i go wheelin, Eaton e-lockers front and rear, Poison Spyder hood louvre panel and sill guards and probably lots more i haven't thought of yet.

i call it the GOD light, flip the switch and its like day light. flare off the hood isn't to bad but that could be due to the colour of the car, only thing no one ever tells you about though is the whistle that you get at certain speeds from the reverb of the cooling fins. but it is easy to live with.. oh and it puts out 23,000 lumens.

Cut some rubber tubing and insert them into the fins at various points. Breaks up the wind and stops the whistle. There is a few posts about that somewhere on here. 👍

that's to much like hard work haha, i changed the angle on it which canceled it out mostly and when it does happen now i just crank up the stereo. :brows::rock:

Had to do the chop a bit different so it would look right with the full width bumper but i think it looks good. Left the small bit on the front edge to mount my LED side markers. Now just have to do the rears

I've begun fabricating my own trail table to mount on the tail gate, couldn't find any in Australia for a good enough price so i figured i'd make my own. So far it has cost me $80 AUS in Materials. Will post pics once it is completed. :rock:

Hey Paul, been good mate, how bout you?

at a standstill with the trail table, although the aluminium has made it very light it is also very flimsy.

thinking of just buying one to put in

What's the thickness of the aluminum you got? I've been pretty busy lately with a few projects, anxiously waiting for some jeep parts to show up, and to have the time to put them on :)
