Winch is on!
Moving the vacuum pump was a bear. I’ll update with pics in the daylight.
Winch works great!
My neighbor is going to help me install an Old Man Emu lift kit when it gets here. I asked him tonight if he wanted to go to Colorado with me in August to run some Jeep trails and he jumped at the opportunity.

The infernal vacuum pump.
The dark recess is the bracket I had to cut, it’s welded to the frame, to get the winch in.
Finally the finished product.

Put this rack in the back to help with organizing the small but valiant Mighty Mouse.
I think I just named my Jeep. That seems to be the current fad. Mighty Mouse. I like it. 👍🏻

I know I won’t find anything as fun as riding bulls.

This will be a good hobby though.

Vince I have a cousin that use to ride bulls. He was a high school state champion for 3 years in a row back in the 80's and still has a rodeo company now. Personally I never found the need to get on one.

My dad wanted me to be a golfer. ⛳🏌🏼‍♂️

Personally I’d rather drink arsenic. I broke my clubs when I was seventeen and threw them at his feet. Outside of miniature golf I’ve not played another round.

The only "pasture ball" I ever liked was when we tossed a golf ball out in the sheep pasture (really short grass..) and took turns trying to advance it across the "course" er pasture with the 22's.. That was fun- just dont let your uncle catch you shooting around the sheep.... CL

New windshield is on.
Cracked the old one the first week I had it. Finally got tired of the crack so I used my glass insurance. Thank you Allstate.

I had them give me Jeep factory glass so I could keep the Jeep logo on the glass. Didn’t cost me anything and they can’t raise my rates for the claim. The really nice feature was that they came to my house to do the install.

Roof rack will be my next project for the exterior.

I’m not a rock crawler. More of an overlanding type that likes blue trails. I stay away from the black trails as those are rated, “ Difficult to Damage Likely “.

Instead of doing the entire bottom in a skid plate system I’m considering just a few important skids like the differential covers. Anybody got any ideas, words of advice, or general knowledge to share?

I also decided to stick with 33” to 34” tires instead of the 35” tires to save weight.

Words of advise, sell the Jeep and get another mountain horse it's safer. lol

I used to have an expanded metal rack that went around the spare tire that was mounted on the back on my 46 Willys Jeep. I used it to haul extra fuel and water to camp then it came in real handy to haul a buck out of the backcountry.
