Late update. I blew one of the Rubicon Express front shocks earlier this year at Grumpy's place. I replaced them with some Billys and added a set of Teraflex BPEs. I've been having some trouble with the old Warn winch so we just replaced it with a Superwinch Tigershark 9500 with synthetic line.

If you're looking to do some light wheeling close to home just to test things out you're welcome to at our place anytime Mike.

Sounds good. It would be cool to try it on the ramp and check brake hose length and clearances on everything.
