Theres a shop in Monrovia accross the street from the high scho there. The guys a bit of a douche, but he works for beer and pizza. Woody's been there.......maybe he can chime in.

He's not so bad once you get past his collection of Harbor Freight tools and his kids soaking you his there squirt guns.  Father of the Year material there.  ;D

Lol.. Super soakers are great...
And that would be amazing, Monrovia isn't too far and the payment is perfect... Even if it doesn't work out I appreciate the input!

I started laying out the drawings and cardboard for a custom built Gen2 hidden winch mount that will allow you to use your OEM bumper (minor trimming of plastic required), and will include 2 front recovery points.  ;D

My other vehicle is an X-WING

Some good research and maybe a direction to move in.

Excellent! I Checked em out. They have some good ideas.

Im going to develop something similar but costs far less than the cost of a winch to produce. Anyone else interested? Once I get it fabbed up, I'll post some pics. I already have a Fabricator on board to produce in small numbers.

Completly bolt on, minor trimming required, Roller or Hawse Compatible. Now if only I could stuff an ARB PowerPlant Dual Force in there somewhere..... ;D

I liked this one from FrontRunner for the LR3. Small strong and functional.

I have a set of 1/4" steel mounting brackets from a shrock bumper if your interested. You can have them for what I paid for them. They kind of look like this.

Point C, from Moab to Cali.

I have other pictures of Chris' rear end/diff filling party, but they are definitely NSFW.

Seriously, something about that just does not sound right.  I really don't think we need those pictures here.
