Winch install.


Bumper had to come off since it wouldn't fit passed the lower edge. Then the bumper had to come back off so I could make a slot to pass the clutch lever through.

Trying to decide if I'm going to keep the light.


Installed, tested, and rope stretched.


Also finally picked up a compressor for the Jeep that fits nicely in a tool bag I've had laying around for a while.

That sinking feeling at the realization that even the fall back version of my top seated bucket list car is largely unobtainable.


Looks great so far. Looking forward to continued updates.

Little might be generous. Really only a 1/4 mile of dirt and maybe another 1/3 of crumbling washed out service road. Still a neat hidden gem in the city.

More parts.
Went to the yard the other day. Managed to pull a tupy head for the rebuild as well as a spare intake, spare front axles, and a somehow intact clutch fan shroud.
Then some other parts got delivered.
The offset wasn't as much as I was hoping for out of the fairlead, but it is enough to place the nut in the recessed section of the winch mount so I shouldn't have to run spacers.
I will be mounting the control box under the hood so I will need to make a couple of longer cables to reach the winch.  Hoping to get that all done Friday before headed out for some wheeling Saturday.
