I had Carl StClair at Outback Offroad Gear build me a winch mount bumper. It looks tough even though it needs a winch badly. I think I will be going with a Atlas 12,000 # unit, they are series wound and only cost $450.00. Seeing as how I finally got around to doing some mods on my 80 I did a few others. I herculined the fender flairs and below the molding around the bottom. I also built a set of drawers in the back. The drawers were a real pain in the :ban: . They may not of been so bad but I didn't want to get rid of my subwoofer, and I wanted them to be level with the second row seats when folded. Thus the problem Sub box (which was perfect air space for sub) was 11", second row seats 9". For a little added strength I used oak faced 3/4 inch plywood, probably didn't really do anything more than cost a lot. Anyways here's a few pics If you would like any of a certain angle or whatever let me know and I'll snap it.

note lights are not hooked up in these pics, I just hooked them up today. By the way how do you aim your lights?

More pics of project. Your keen eyes will probably notice that the tailgate release handle is missing. How much are they and where can I get one.

so you need to open both drawers at the same time since the jack is bolted to both faces? Would have been easier to just make one drawer rather than two with two sets of slides if that's the case.

Other than that, bumper and stuff looks good.

Looks great! Could you post some more pictures of the drawers, especially the subwoofer location?
Thanks

Here are the dimensions of the speaker box. I would take an 1/8th off the widthe if I was to build it again, it just barely fit between the wheel wells. Sorry for the shoddy diagram I did it in Paint and I'm no pro.
