That is awfully similar, but it will still be a bit different ... the center hoop actually leans back a couple degrees and doesn't have quite the "stinger" appearance. Also winch plate.

and I don't think that looks bad on your ZJ

ok, in addition to that; you should also shoot for this stance when you make the next round of adjustments

This is in "design" stage right now, so no pricing or availability as of yet. Any questions can be answered by cyrus.

Same person who also designed my crossmember, which has worked flawlessly and been beaten on repeatedly.


the winch plate is 1/4 inch, and has a 60 degree 1.125 inch flange across the back..... mechanica shows less than a 1/16 inch movement with 18k load straight out the fairled off the sencond layer of rope on the drum.... I dont see a problem, his jeep will rip in two before he can put that much load on the winch

as soon as I can figure out this damn bluetooth wireless transfer thingy on my phone I'll post up some pictures.... other wise you'll you'll have to wait until later this week or maybe next when my son gets home from sutton alaska with my camera....

Why? mine probably sits lower and has just as long a wheel base if not longer...

and I'm not doing any body work to my pos, it's just not worth the time. I'm just building the axles to swap in and pull the drivetrain back out in a year or two when I can build something newer, with more comfort and a little less scratches.

Timmerbuilt bumper ... if it's anything like the cross member I should be able nose dive on this without a problem ... at least to the bumper.





Although not my jeep .. it's still nice. Can't wait to get it mounted with the winch.

Just get the new sx's then... that'll probably do it.

I kind of forgot about you lowering it... then I double checked and you're right.... it's not far off.

Actually ... I really like the larger sx's. Kelly's 38.5 sx's next to my 39.5 Iroks with no weight are within a .5" But for price and the limitation of 16.5 wheels, I don't have many choices for 40" tars.

I'm sensing sarcasm ... the main (center) hoop leans back a couple degrees and the ears lean forward a touch. Oh, kinda like yours!

I need to get on Tab about the JK bumper...
