I would want to be very stock suspension height and geometry if I was towing with a scrambler...everything about lifted jeeps (soft springs; big tires) is really bad for towing... My hitch only gets used for recovery.
I tow with the Trailhotness :)
Back before my engine swap; I had exhaust manifold issues. I found one in a local JY and took it to my machine shop and had it machined perfect before installing (only $40). Saying that; I'd just have cut a new piece in after the cast iron portion and have a bung welded in...
Not sure if its necessary; depends on that one day that you're wheeling where it's extra slippery and you can't make it to the top of a trail you normally knock out...... do you lock-it and give it a little more?
The price for that with all chromo seems decent.
Only $5 difference... why would someone go internal vs external?
Can you show how the warn hub engages this?
What is the difference between intenally and externally splined hubs?
I have superwinch hubs; I know what those look like (I seem to break the little springs)
I went with ARP studs and ultra high end locking washers...
