There is plenty of room for width but very little for depth (but, I did get the winch to extend only one inch past the frame with a lot of cutting). Also, are you going to build your own bumper, if so, it could be sweet. If you are going to get a store bought one, then you have gained nothing again. And lastly, the red would bug me. I'm a poser, I know.


The red would bug you but you have those chromy diamond plate interior accent pieces?

What up wiff dat?

I also have brushed AL floor panels and a $25 yellow steering wheel. But I draw the line at red!

I run a 9.5XP with 80' of plasma rope. Last summer I punished it severely and it held up fine. Half the time completely submersed in water. I've also seen the Ti worked hard all day and it's been reliable as well.
