Can't wait to see the pics!

Enlist some help installing it - it's a chore lifting the bumper & winch up there all together.

I like it.

I'm not sure if I like the winches down in the bumper or on top. Does it being on top reduce air flow into the radiator?

Um... wait, what? Buick? Oh dear...

I used to be a foreign sports car girl. Then I saw a shiny new Mango Tango at the dealership. Changed my life! Seriously.

^^^^^ That's the one.



Last Summer I cruised up hwy 50 to Icehouse to the Rubicon with that bumper and winch. It was 104 degrees out and I had the AC on full blast. At that time it was still on stock Rubicon 44s with 4.10s and 37s. The engine was working HARD to pull that grade, but the engine temp never climbed past the midpoint of the gauge.

that might have been an older problem, my buddies Scram has the winch in front and he had to add an extra fan because the winch blocked some of the air flow.

oh and btw, nice bumper, thats gonna look sweet on your rig

i think im gonna go with these lights, the 7 inch a litte spendy but what the heck.. i like the fact that you dont have to run wires to your dash or install a switch because it has a wireless controll switch that you can mount anywhere in the jeep..

I ordered my jeep with a winch. It's above the bumper... It has not need a problem yet.

BYW My wife is driving on this section of the trail. She did great, in fact much better than the Toyota folowing us.....
