I'd like to see Dan get down the tighter stuff My goal is to NOT smash this one. I may have to swap on the old one just for Snofari.

I can't wait to see how the rig changes for next year with more gear under it. Frankly, it probably won't affect it much as it'll still be an on/off switch for the fuel. I'd like to get new tires too, but I may just trailer it and keep these again. I can't decide what I want to put under it with the TSL's backordered for who knows how long. I wish I had not let my 15x8 chrome rims go either.

Looks like they are building me a ceramic clutch, hope it works ok, I know you can't slip them well, but after looking how burned the old one was I figured the upgrade might be worth it.

On that challenge Dan & I will find tighter trails Actually the 5 stays home and all of the pre runs are done in the Cherokee so we know he can fit. I never drive the trail til the day of the event!

I know where you can get a set of 16x35x16 Boggers already mounted on 5x5.5 :)

Ceramic isn't that bad, my 81 has one. Get a front locker so you don't have to play on/off switch with the skinny pedal. Those Warn OD's do not like on/off shock loads at all. Can't wait to see it back together!

How much stress is on the Warn OD when it is not engaged? Can it still blow if your not hammering on it specifically?

The main gear teeth like to go away if that crazy retainer nut / clip setup loosens up at all. I've been into three of them in my life and two were finger tight or backed up against that 4 point retainer clip. Use sleeve retainer and surface prep on that setup when you put it together.

The OD will not tolerate any abuse whatsoever without throwing up the planet gears. They are only a light duty OD for easy cruising, not a gear splitter for low range or tough terrain.

I got an OD from PP one time and couldn't make it fit with my PTO setup without frame chopping. Wish it would've worked, killed me to sell it.

Think we will have to mod the upper bracket slightly but the column fits nice then fix the floor with the patch template I made using steel of coarse



The brake pedal return spring is not hooked up so the pedal is down a little

I like that you kept a straight tube column...GM columns kill the flatty mojo as well.

I cannot stand the look of the GM columns in flatties. It looks terrible and out of place to me.

I like the through the floor pedals, the only trouble they have ever given me was when the clutch shaft was misaligned and I would lose the linkage. I have never had wet feet because I try not to play in deep water, I am too scared to lose an engine or something, and no matter what I do I can't seem to get my oil pan to seal up well.

I won't be putting in a hydro clutch, I can't see the need to, and it is just adding more complication that can fail - just like I did with the fan. If my clutch cable breaks on this, I could even use a piece of rope if I needed to and get back on the trail.

Wilwood hydro master/slave setup with braided AN line. Easy to install and route out of harms way. Beats cable or chain hands down.

Guess I don't see what is so bad about the current setup? My clutch is no stiffer than my old 85 S10 with a Hydro clutch....

Dirt, mud, rust, sand etc.. gets in the cable, pivots and wears out the bushings/cable/sheath. The trail ride stuff I do always seemed to kill the cables every couple years. Never a problem since hydro and more room for PTO shafts or exhaust inside of the frame. Stiffness can be smoothed out by using different size MC / slave bore sizes. Mine is smooth and light.

Is this winch plugged into a receiver or directly bolted on?

It is on a receiver mount. We discussed mounting it underneath with a skidplate to protect it though. I kind of like it on the receiver as I could easily swap it to my YJ when I get that going again.
