    built a mount for my new winch a few days ago. i used some 1/4 plate, the mounting plate it came with, and a 2in drop hitch. when i build a bumper for the front it will have a 2" receiver on it so i can put the winch on front or back depending on how im stuck.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]
    i cut out a section of the hitch so the would be more weld holding the two pieces together

    [​IMG]
    i also box in this back section

    started collecting parts for the onboard air system. two 5gal tanks and an air hose. the two tanks fit perfectly behind/under my spare tire in the bed so theres no wasted space. ill probably use an mv50 compressor and mount it in the tool box.

    Nice have you ever thought about using your AC compressor. I know you have to give up ac. My buddies 4runner is setup that way with 1 tank similar to yours and it works great.

    Saw your videos from Potawatomi on youtube. I'm stationed at Fort Leonard Wood. I definitely want to hit up those trails someday, if you want to go it would be great to have someone show me around.

    Are there any high speed sections or trails there?

    its a fun place, it gets old quick tho. theres a few places where you can go somewhat fast, and a field you can blast threw, its mostly just trails tho.

    not sure yet but im thinking about going up Saturday if you can go then, if that wont work just let me know when you wanna go.

    discovered oil all over the my left rear tire, looks like a busted axle seal. called up O'reillys and ordered 2 inner and 2 outer oil seals for $35ish. thought it wouldn't hurt to have a spare set.
