On my bumper, my winch bolts against the front of the bumper. I used some C channel that my buddy had laying around in his shop that ended up being the exact size to sit my warn winch inside of, then just burned it into some tie in plates. I tapered the ends a bit, and I'll add tube sides as soon as I get a chance

I'm actually doing something similar to "baddadfab" with a few mods. Check them out.

Re: Weekend is over...what did you get done?

I finally got a chance to install the JK Rubicon rear axle in the XJ and the pinion angle is off. Trying to find some 8 inch long by 2 or 3 degrees angle shims.

I should have done a mockup before welding the perches.

I have bought a new vacuum cleaner and made an interior cleaning. Very useful thing. I have not used it before. I think that I'll clean the car more often now.

Re: Weekend is over...what did you get done?

My oldest got her learners permit earlier this week, so we've been spending a lot of time in the Jeep teaching her to drive. She's driven all 4 of mine and likes the Commander the best. I think she likes being up higher than in the ZJs.

Re: Weekend is over...what did you get done?

Got some good stuff at the junkyard yesterday. Found a new taillight for the XK, as well as new back door window seals for it. Mine were dried out and cracked. Not sure what I'll do with this yet, but I did find a wrecked 2017 Compass Trailhawk and was able to pull the factory powdercoated red rear tow hook.

That is a beautiful installation. With a hawse fairlead, you may be able to re-install the OEM or similar bumper.

Re: Weekend is over...what did you get done?

Started building a shed in the back yard. Looking forward to getting all the random crap out of my garage so that I have room to work on the trucks again!
