Found a cracked rear shock mount on the Black Jeep.  Sara is taking it out mudding tomorrow so I welded it up for her.  She definitely got the Jeeping Bug last weekend at the Hartland run.  She wanted to learn how to run the winch in case she get herself into trouble.  At least she is thing ahead.

I looked at mine and thought about getting the Jug-o-gas out to take it for a ride.  Maybe tomorrow, but it needs Love, and I have no time

Make sure to take that cover off the winch every once in awhile to let air get in there and dry it

Thanks for liking it, it was a fun cheap project.
Just tape around the edge, it covers the broken chrome pieces.
The metal grille then was glued to the back of the frame.

Thanks for the tip on the winch cover.

I properly spooled my winch, I've also been working on getting stuff in the Jeep organized, tied down and easy to get to. I also made some paracord zipper pulls.

I sourced them from amazon. They were like a dollar a piece, but I had to buy 10, so I have extras.

I wish I could do that. If I did, someone would steal my jack. LOL
There is a protective cover welded over one of my winch mounting bolts to prevent anyone from being able to get a socket on it, just in case. I tighten my D-ring shackles with a wrench so you can't unscrew them by hand. When the "street people" walk by eyeing the jeep up and down, they're not admiring it. They're looking to see what they can snatch off of it.

I properly spooled my winch....


 That's the BORING way to respool your winch...

  What you want to do, is find a nice secluded hill out in the woods with a nice sized tree at the top.  Hook onto that and back your jeep down the hill very slowly paying no mind to how many wraps are still on the drum...

  THEN, and this is important...  You put the jeep in neutral and GET OUT OF THE JEEP, and walk to the front.  You then begin to wrap the spool, and here's where it get's FUN!  You listen to the winch line twang as it releases itself from the drum, then you make a mad dash down the hill to catch your, now runnaway, jeep before it crashes at the bottom of the hill.

  If you're lucky, and quick enough, you'll stop the jeep BEFORE the bottom of the trail and the turn where there are nice trees waiting to kindly and SUDDENLY help you stop the vehicle...

  If you've done all that successfully, you then check your drawers for new debris, after which you pull the Jeep back up to the now slack line laying on the ground.  Put the Jeep in Park and apply the emergency brake, then wait a good 20-30 minutes for your nerves and adrenaline to level out, and start again...  This time paying attention to the number of wraps you begin with...


 Now THAT'S fun!  and the most exciting and enjoyable way to respool your winch.
