    Winch wired

    Here are some pics of how I wired the winch, I took it through the grill mount for the BL then up the inside of the front fender. I located the winch control under the hood after having second thoughts about putting it in the cab.

    WELL Know what you got left when you are grinding the rust of a YJ?

    The fender is so fkd I'd be better off witha new one. But I have a nice piece of steel that will fit, so I am now fabing about half a fender. Will post pics soon.

    So this is what my fender looks like now

    Just a little rust, few holes and bondo. Knew it was bad when I hit it with a grinder, but didn't realize it was that bad! Oh well, will put a sheet of steel over it for this season, then mudterror has agreed to make me a set of tube fenders for the beast. Still have some cuttin and grinding to go yet.
