Got the winch installed. Like many others here went with the badlands Apex. Fitment is tight with this bumper and the winch housing does make contact with part of the grill. I had to relocate the power cable to the side of the control box like others have done. Other than that, it works great. Measured front end sag. Ended up being about 1/4" so very minimal overall and pleased with it.

Winch weights about 60 lbs

Remaining payload= 613.5lbs

Seeing this is cool. That being said makes me lean toward a trailer and just try to keep the tongue weight low. LoL

Upgraded to 35's today. Went with Toyo Open Country 3s in 35x11.50. Decided to do 11.50s so I could keep the stock wheels and from what I read they won't rub without a lift, they should also be lighter than 12.50s.

Factory tires= 63lbs
New Tires= 61lbs

Netting me a savings of 10lbs (over all 5 tires)

Remaining payload= 623.5 lbs

Old tires are for sale as well with 10,700 miles on them.

This is the way the Rubicon should have come from the factory!
Congrats!
