Looking good Greg.
Thanks Steve!Looking good Greg.
I appreciate the comment Scott, this build has been put together with the mindset of function before fashion. I'm very happy with the outcome so far!What a cool build, very functional without going overboard. :beer:
Glad it's helpful!Hi Greg. I'm new to the forum world as well as to the Jeep world. I recently purchased a 2012 JKU Sport. I didn't know what I was doing and now realize I should have bought the Rubicon. Anyways, I see myself doing more of the overlanding than the rock crawling. I have read your thread and find it really informative. I too will be installing the TeraFlex 3", but not sure which way to go, either the kit you got or the 8 arm 3". I intend on overlanding with a small trailer (M-416 style). I am limited due to the Dana 30 front I have. Any advice?
Who wears underwear? :Wow1: Just kidding... funny way to put it. Yeah, drilling 20 holes in a newer Jeep was pretty unnerving, but I felt confident about it... and everything went as it should have, so that was a relief! Thanks for the compliment!Dude, you must have extra large underwear. That takes big balls to drill that many holes in your new rig. Nice job and great Jeep.
Thanks Rick!Love the jeep and love the roof rack.
A word of caution though. I an not sure I would put any pressure at all on that valve stem on the bike. I have seen them sheer off pretty easily.
:bigok:OK, I am now "officially envious"! :beer:
*You're building an awesome Jeep
*You own the best brand of dirt bike on the planet (fastest, smoothest, easiest bike I ever raced off road was the KTM 250SX 2stroke version)
*And you have a righteous mountain bike (what bike is that?)
You are like my super hero! :bowdown:
In all seriousness though, the Jeep is coming along awesome. Nice to see the trail pics. :friday:
I haven't noticed any problems with airflow and running hot after mounting the winch. If you think about it, you're not going to have a lot of air flow until you're running 25-30 MPH and until then, the electric fan takes over for low-speed air flow and the winch isn't really hindering air flow, since air is being pulled thru from behind the radiator. At least that's how it works in my head.Do you find any heat issues out in the desert with the winch mounted that high?
