I got my winch in place today


I was happy to see that it does not block off my radiator, I was worried that it would sit up higher that it does.

Put my seats in a few days ago and I am getting my cargo area together too


I put the doors back on too, so I can get this thing out and use it before spring I hope

Picked up the stearing box bracket from Minibeast today.

Thanks Roger

Awesome build. I just decided to do a little bit with my ZJ, nothing too drastic though as it's still my DD. I'll have to try to get in touch with some of you guys in the Muskegon area this summer for some wheeling.
