I know, I know, I know :violent1: :violent1: :violent1:

We just got a nice snowfall here. I'll try to go bury it in a snowdrift & take pix of that in the next day or two! :geek:

If you use your imagination, what does my signature look like...:idea1:

Um, hmm, well, (blushing here...) that would be my Hi-Lift jack. I got it about a week before leaving for Moab & didn't come up with a better place to mount it. So I used tie-down straps & lashed it to the brush guard. Also, my pix don't show it (too ashamed...) but I also had a couple of 2.5 gallon plastic gas cans lashed on the upper area of the brush guard as well. It looked kinda' hokey but worked out quite well for our 100 mile trek around the White Rim Road (with family aboard) stock.

nice X! got any pics showing the lift? It seems like you dont have the lift in most of the pics and the ones you do have it with are in the snow bank so its hard to tell.
