Recovered my account, i won't be posting as sneakyninja any longer. Getting hyped up for the Sierra Nevada Challenge in August so here's some pics. These are from Fordyce Creek in '16, I'll post up some more over the next few days. Feel free to share if you have any cool photos from the Sierras!

The Black 1996 has almost the same setup except 37's, 4.90 diffs and custom steel skid plates. It did get an SAS before the last Sierra Challenge, Wagoneer D44 with Reid knuckles, ARB air locker and chromoly shafts on leaf springs. These pics are from the 2016 Challenge.

Has there ever been any issues with Kevin's winch with that being open like it is?

Like getting stolen? None of us have really ever had any winch issues, I guess the sunlight would cook a synthetic line eventually being exposed like that. Then he'd need a neoprene cover like the Jeep guys use, it is super handy having easy access to your winch like we do though. The few guys i know that have them mounted under an ARB (Gen 3) when there is a winch issue like a
cable birdnest or Rainier had a ground issue it's a little tougher to remedy. Although you can't really get birdnesting with synthetic line which most of us run now.

Sorry, no wasn't talking about getting stolen. Being covered for water and mud. Well, mostly mud. That's what I was referring to.

On the subject of that, did you put a tube in the frame where the bumper bolts thru?

We don't really do mud or have much here, but winches get wet all the time without issues. They are quite low, i think mud might be a problem if you were pushing through it enough to pack it solid. His bumper doesn't have tube sleeves and it should, instead i made new frame horns out of thicker material. 1/8" frame tube with sleeved bolt holes would have been adequate and much lighter.

We also don't pull from our bumpers, especially at the height his is. We all pull from the frame centerline.

Great pics, thanks for sharing! This flat-lander is a little jealous for sure.

Keep up the consistent Mitsu 4x4 awesomeness :grinpimp:
