Boy, I'm glad I have the old model so I don't have to worry about all that. No slideouts to increase weight, plenty of CCC, Gee, what more do you need. I know my jeep weighs 36 and change and loaded with a half tank of water, full of fuel, and everything else my wife can pack in, she's 12500 on the axles with 3200 on the pin. Makes for about 15700 total but as long as the axles/tires are only seeing the 12500 I figure I'm good.

Power wise, with the old Chevy putting out 390hp with 770ft lbs of TQ, going down the road is not a problem.

What system do you use to secure your Jeep in the WW?

We are looking forward to ours arriving soon. We would like to have all the right stuff already in hand so we can take a shake down run.

I have the 5k flushmount tiedown points in all four corners, use J-hooks with chains up front going to the axle housing on each side. In the rear I use two 10k ratchet tiedown straps x crossed to the rear axle housing. I made some tiedown points on the housing using some chain bolted to it with a link sticking out for the strap to hook to.

By tying it down to the housings it lets the body ride on its suspension instead of pulling the suspension down like some do which I feel puts undue strain on the straps and isn't good for the suspension.

I just winch it in, hang the J-hooks, let the winch off until the chains are tight, then go to the rear and strap it down.

Vette Racer,

I think the WW I am getting only has 2k flushmount tie downs.

Is there anyway I could talk you out of a couple pictures please.

Also are the J hooks like the tow truck type? I take it you use the winch on the Jeep?

Thank You

No, I use the winch under the cabinet that was an option on the 2003 WW, the warn 3500. The mounts are the 5k option in 2002 also. The J-hooks are the same as the wrecker uses except they are the long ones, about 12". Makes you wish WW would stay the same doesn't it.

I don't know if I'd buy the same again depending on what the options were. Have to have a talk with WW, that's for sure.

Luck on your choice.

By the way, if you install the 5k tiedowns make sure you tie them into the frame for support. Gotta have the strength.

You're not into S&M by any chance, Tom, are you? Only kidding, bud.
