I guess brakes are important too, but where's that winch?!  :D 

 

do you still have the rear prop valve?

Winch is still in the box for now. Haven’t had a chance to get it in yet. 
 

No I deleted the rear prop valve and swapped in a YJ main prop block under the hood. 
 

Took it out for a 50 mile drive today. Did pretty good. Temp hovered between 198-206. Still not perfect, but held 55-65mph pretty good. Not bad for 3:55’s and 32x11.50 tires. Brake pedal did get a bit soft a couple of times and she wants to wander on rougher stretches of pavement. 
 

We are getting there though.

looks great! love the matte gloss wanting to do something to my lwb in the near future.

Thanks! I went back and forth on colors and finish. This was a test and turned out pretty good. I painted the front clip a couple months ago from a different batch of paint than the rest so it’s just a tad lighter than the rest of the truck.

Spent a few days a Barbers Motorsports Park. Toured the museum and watched the incredibly talented racers navigate the wet track all weekend. 355219A2-CBA7-47BB-A523-C0014FABD6F4.jpeg.a1b3cd9aedb3a38524769a465cec6014.jpeg


Now back to real life and getting INKY on the road. Found my brake problem, drivers side parking brake cable was frozen in engaged position. Got it freed up and brakes are now working properly.

Amazing job start to finish on your truck! That is one hell of a transformation. It looks great. I really like the body color with accents you went with. What is the decal on the hood of? Could you put up a close up photo?

Winch mounted, still have to mount the control box and wire it up. Winch is an XBull 10k synthetic line. Tried to save as much of the front bumper and possible. What a pain in the @$$, started with a small hole and expanded it to fit the fairled slot.

I like the look of a winch in the factory bumper. What mount did you use?

Winch control box mounted. Decided to keep all the parts in the control box and mount where it was easily accessible in case I have problems with the. Wireless remote. Plus is it’s kind of protected by the brush guard.

No photos, but made a huge change to INKY. Scored a ECU from @SatiricalHenComanche and swapped it into INKY, she love the new brain and is running better than ever. Seems my old ECU was a major part of my stumbling problem. 
 

Also replaced all the emergency brake cables and now I have working emergency brakes.

Blue on tan? Are you not a fan of that wood grain? 🤔 

This one was the brushed silver and was showing it’s age pretty badly and no never been a fan of woodgrain trim.
