It sat like this for a while until today put on my lift. It rides awesome and feels so good. I give the lift 5 stars. Took about 10 hours to put in(only cuz i didnt have right tools until the end).

Rough Country 4.5
On 31's

Here it is all done now, except for shackles. Bolted right up and winch runs great. No major test yet but seems like a very strong and reliable winch.

Sweet winch! I like how you just put it on the stock bumper. Pretty cool. Im also a sucker for the country edition. I had your color scheme in a 2 door with a 3.5 rough country and i miss it.
