Looks great :clap:

Did you have to beef up the front suspension to carry all that extra weight up front?

Any camber issues?

How heavy is the bumper/winch combo?

What's the PVC pipe for?

No camber issues. The pvc is a "water tank" holds 7gal. Weight is arround 120 to 150 pounds (no handling issues)

Did you have to do anything special or clever to use the winch? The stock bumper mounts don't seem like they could pull much before collapsing.

Funny, CC - you asking these Questions - of all people.
Or maybe you are simply suggesting things that might matter... experience?

Well, after all... what would Banacek say ?... Anyone that condones the actions of the American People during the Storming of the Capitol are as complicit as the Assholes themselves.
But no way does this let the Democrats or the MSM off the Hook.
