love it! winch should be first on the list. coming from someone who installed a light bar maybe 6-7 years ago I think I have used it once. i am not in the desert and in groups it just blinds people. It looks like you have done your research and put money towards quality parts. I worked in an offroad shop for 8 years and after seeing many others and building my own I have no doubt that yours will get you where you want to go. Focus on function over form and your money will go farther.
Happy trails!

Thanks...winch is definitely the next purchase.

Light bar is very low on the list but it’s there because it gets DARK in the Michigan woods at night.

All looks great; however why would on board air not be the next to be prioritised

Of everyone I know who has a winch majority very rarely (if ever) require it. Granted, the terrain in the Middle East will be alot different to the woods of Michigan. However inflating and deflating tyres is something that is surely required on almost every outing!
