New winch!

Well i ordered me a smittybilt xrc8 winch last week. It came in on thursday (i had time to open the box, admire, and then leave for florida) :( Im goin back home tomorrow though and ill take some pics of it and ill aslo take some pics of the front bumper my buddy gave me off an older yota. I have to re-work the bumper a little and put some fresh paint on it. Its has lots of surface rust on it and ill have to weld up some mounting brackets for a ranger frame. Cant wait to mount it and go get stuck! lol

Well i got the winch on. Truck is a little dirty, but i couldnt help myself. I had to go test it out.

This is the truck how it sits now.


And the winch.


And a good pic of the bumper.


And the console i threw together for the t-case shifter. and yes, that the bottom of gatorade bottles for cupholders. lol
