This rig looks awesome since I saw it when I grabbed that exhaust! Still running it too :).

Thanks Stephen, greatly appreciated! Your Jeep is also looking great with the new lift, wheels, and tires! I’m breaking the axles in now and planning to take it to Uwharrie after the axles have been broken in, fluids changed, and everything re-torqued.

Great looking rig! I think I ended up with your stock bumper. My question is how did you store the hook? It looks like you ran the winch all the way in but I see the pic of it when it was still on your Jeep and it looks like the hook is laying flat against the fairlead. I've never owned a winch and I am doing all the research I can on using it properly, maintenance, and such. I was afraid to draw the hook up that far but I guess these synthetic winch lines have a fair amount of stretch in them. Sorry I was not trying to hijack your thread. You have a bad ass setup but I thought it was cool that I possibly found the guy that had this winch/bumper setup.

Thanks! I had a factor 55 hook drawn tight to the fair lead. You can also draw the stock hook tight to the fair lead, just be careful to get your fingers out of the way!

Ahh, ok then thanks. I was thinking about getting the Factor 55 Ultrahook. That's good to know.
