Hey guys,

Just finished installing a Warn winch and an LED driving light bar,

My brother fabbed up some stainless tubular mounts that bolt up to the factory tow hook plates. I then replaced the factory tow hook 10.9 bolts with 12.9's. He then drew up a plate design and we had a local metal fabrication shop press it out of 3/8" stainless steel and laser cut the fairlead opening and round off the corners. I like the look and there was no need to do anything with the bumper. Next year we are going to remove the bumper and replace the factory center with a reinforced piece to rigid up the frame rails.

The light is a BrightSource DOT approved street legal driving light and it is insanely bright.

Just been busy bud. Building two engines and fixing various break downs like my control arms.

I did make another change. I added studded 265/70/17 Duratracs on some Wrangler rims. I bought the rims for $100 from a guy who blacked them out and used them as winter rims. I had to fold the seam and pin back the well but it gave me enough clearance to run the bigger tires.

I like it. It looks mean.

What were you hunting?

Did you get anything for dinner?

My older brother got a 3 point buck. My younger brother saw a moose but far away and it was spooked. I ran across another the next day but it was also flushed and did not give me a good shot. We can still try for elk for 3 more weeks.
