Nice set up. I'm rockin' the fastback too. Looks like we have similar bumpers. I went with the XRC gen II for the full width. My winch is a 9500 with synthetic line. Wanted the x20, but ended up with the 9500. Anyway, nice rig.

I like the recessed winch plate on the gen 2 bumpers. They came out like 2 weeks after I got the stubby hehehe ah well.

Thanks much

Thanks,

I forgot to mention that I also regeared to 4.88s.
That's next for me as budget allows. I'm running 4:10's right now. Haven't put 35's on yet because I'm worried about the gearing. When I have the gears done, I'm going to have lockers installed as well. Might as well do it all at once.

I like it a lot. It's a bit of a pain in the ass to put on, especially the spare tire gate, but once it's all on and adjusted works great. I have been tempted to look at the ones that you can get that attach to your tailgate though. So you open the tailgate and everything swings out for you. Sometimes it is a fight to open the Atlas, especially after a long day of trail riding.

Haven't updated this in a while but mainly because I haven't had anything to really post, I have some new gear to put on Moro very soon:

Quick disconnects for the front sway bar (get more travel then just the electronic disconnect)
Joying Radio
Fender Deletes
New hood latches
New wheels, the steel beadlocks are just too heavy
Cowl for the hood to help with heat reduction (needs to be painted first)
New Grill (also needs to be painted)
Need to cut my rock sliders about an inch - an inch and half in the rear (Tires rub when they get stuffed)

Hoping to get started on this list this weekend.

Thanks guys. Yeah I'm really happy how she's turning out. Right now I'm planning a trip out to the Sierra Nevadas for next year. So this winter I'll be deep into that as well. :)
