    I voted winch but only because you did not have protection up there. I am kind of in the same boat and going with some sliders and skids.

    How often do you wheel and would you "need" the winch?

    Makes sense. Be good to have it for sure...especially if you think you might wheel alone.

    lol Those springs went to something cant remember what... Most of this cash is my old paintball guns stuff, now I can shoot real ones get rid of the toys :) But now here is a question... In an area near me a guy is wanting to sell a warn winch xd9000 its a year old and he want give or take 750 for it... decent price? Now as for the application for a winch I know i need winch, dual battery/ Tray, and more.... what is that more? lol

    Great. I haven't packed any real weight yet, but even empty is a way better ride with 8psi in the ride rites, and axle wrap if hugely reduced from the 3 leafers. Having the 6 spd makes this very noticable.

    Voted for winch, it could save you money depending on how you wheel. Other things won't ;) I wouldn't buy a used winch either, but enjoy your decision :)
