I am glad you are amazed by it.

I have the 10A bumper and live in a state that requires front license plates. My challenge is fitting the tow bar on the bottom of the bumper, license plate and winch in the remaining space.

Old Scout I agree that 95% or more of must Jeepís donít need a winch and a lot of folks buy a lot of fancy add ons that do nothing but empty their pockets but it makes them happy so whoís to judge. I think that goes with a lot of things and hobbies. In my case I use my Jeep about 50% off road mostly what I would call mild trails but and the winch on my Jeep has been primarily used to help others but I have had to use it to move obstacles just as blown down trees. Mine is an insurance policy that I hope I donít need but will continue to carry in the event it does.

In years past on my younger days I winched my self out and others many times so I will continue to pack it as long as I travel off road.

There's only 2 places I've seen horns on vehicles. The pickups of Bubbas in Texas and the Cadillac pimpmobiles in Harlem.
