    I wanted to weld the holes shut on my bedsides and fenders before I painted them but…life happened lol.

    I do wonder how hard it would be to find 5 lug fenders and shoot them silver?

    That front bumper probably isn't staying on, either.
    Might as well remove it and sell me those fogs at a discounted rate. :D

    Or just chop the fenders back to the holes for more clearance

    I had room to leave the control box mounted to the winch. It's a bit of a reach to the toggle switch. The disconnect switch coming from the battery is mounted on the radiator support using a bracket from Lamb Tek Innovations. I replaced the Badlands switch with one from Blue Sea.
    I can take a picture of the disconnect switch when I get home from work if you'd like.

    Axles are pretty much dollar priority number one to me! Having good gearing, lockers and steering is a non-negotiable. Makes wheeling and driving on the road so much better…literally no downside to investing in them.

    I won’t even install any aux lighting that’s not rock lights on the driver’s side only out of pure principle at this point :D

    Mine doesn't have anything like what you describe, did I get cheated?

    Maybe I should just return it for one that has that thingy.

    I couldn't say for sure.
    It's been a handful of years since I bought mine. They're probably wireless now.?:):rofl:

    Here's mine:

    Some of the holes are there from factory. The steel is 1" wide and approx .1" (12 gauge) thick. You should be able to find similar at HD/Lowes/True Value in their hobby metal display. I think the individual pieces were about 12" long but you'd have to measure for sure.

    That placement makes for an easy reach to the On/Off switch.

    I considered using aluminum, but figured it would crack if it vibrated.
