The winch controller is from 12voltunlimited. He did the big panel
I had in the juggy, good guy and a good product.
The switch panel uses switches and actuators from Rocker Switch Pros.
The actuators are etched not just printed, so they won't wear off. Also good products and helpful tech support...

Got my trans temp gauge in, while I wait on my plate cooler/fan set up to get here.
Added snazzy billet knobs too...

Scored some scrap AR plate from my club's range. Decided to make a patch for the big hole in theR side of my heep. Previous owner cut it out for a gas fill or something...looks like crap so I thought I'd use the AR plate I have kicking around. It cut fine with the torch but I'm reading that it's difficult to weld. Any tips?

Artec makes some good stuff! Looking good and I still think the H2 wheels look awesome!

Question, is that the final resting spot for the cell? Only speaking from an experience I had; make sure there is enough space between the cell an the paper thin tailgate. I was in a situation with the jeep climbing at an fairly sharp angle and in the process of attempting and backing up, put the top of my tailgate slightly into a tree and bent the tail gate which is not a mere 1/4 inch from my cell.  My concern, for my situation is now one good wack and the tail gate could contact the cell and damage it causing a potential fuel leak. My solution was to bend the tailgate back best I could and weld some tube between the C pillars and between the tailgate and cell hopefully offering some protection.

Thanks, I never thought about smoking the tailgate and possibly damaging the cell. It's not mounted yet so I'll look at putting it behind the seat.

I've notice a lot of those cells mounted like you have it placed.  Mine are mounted the other way.  I never understood the logic with the way yours is placed. 

Going on the tailgate thing, my cell was originally right behind the seat, great for storage and safety from impacts but I was always concerned with a hose failure and getting soaked in fuel.  So last winter I moved it to by the tailgate.  Balanced weight better and is safer for me.   I'm not worried about hitting the tailgate cause my cage would protect that.  Just my 2cents

Just to add some clarity, I wasn't suggesting to put it right behind the seat, similar to what Matt said, my cell is still about 2" from the tail gate behind the rear seat, I added some tube to protect it.  Looking at the pictures which may not represent the space accurately, but if the cell is move forward enough to put a piece of tube between the cell and the tail gate at a height similar to the top of the cell would be way better in my opinion.
