The winch comment was a joke. It's a 4-wheeler fairlead held in place with sheet metal screws. :) A couple buddies of mine did it on our last trip w/out me knowing until later on.

Most of the guys I wheel with all have winches but me...hence the joke.

Thanks for the compliments though.

Ahhh... got it. Was thinking unless you'd be winching out Barbie's Jeep... it's a bit under-kill!!

Way to go whoever wrote the info. Unless he mated a I-6 tranny to his V8 the model is wrong. The 5.2L tranny is a 46RH.

Nothing special. Just a set of hood vents I pulled from the j/y. I cut the hood, painted the vents an riveted them in on the hood.

they are sweet looking. Thats a mod i would eventually like to do. I might try to do that while i have the hood off doing a engine swap.

No, they are a hard plastic.

Thanks...it would be easier to do if the hood is already off.

congrats!! sweet rig! For running 36's your Jeep is still very clean looking, not all banged or cut up. The rear 44 is it an iron from a waggy or is it the HD?

I was wondering what kind of tranny i had cus it got jarbled in my brain with 22re and etc etc..

but if i have a 93 Zj with 5.2 then for sure i have the 46rh???

Not "stealing thunder", yes the 46rh is a decent trans in my opinion. I'm just getting to the point of considering swapping my trans after 174k and thats only b/c the torque converter is slipping.

But, what's your real question...where's this question leading, etc. Start a new thread about it and not in this thread.
