Damn..

How much would a 9k winch be worth? I seen a 2k one for 80$ at Shucks.. I kinda want one.. [Coulda saved me a lot of time and bs a few times..]
 






Love the winch. Looks badass
 






looks great! i love the idea of sleeving the frame like that!
are you going to add any more protection to the front end or leave it as is?
 






That looks sweet. That front frame looks BEEFY. Love the shackle mounts.

$400-$950 depending on brand.
 






Here's a crappy daylight cell-phone pic.


Ordered the shackles today. Along with same 6" Pro Comp 130 watt lights to build the bumper around. :cool:

x2 -- ur going to mill down that hawse fairlead on an angled pull with that steel cable.
 






is the synthetic as strong as cable?

Lighter, no snap back when it breaks, easier to spool back on, no coiling/wrap problem.

Mucho better.
 






Is $270 about the going price for the 3/8" x 100'?
 






where did you get the winch plate thingy jobber?
 












thanks!! this is a wonderful time and age we live in, just saved me 50% of the work!

Winch mount is perfect Section....... I wish my BII had that much room up front!
 






How come it doesn't? You'd think it would.......
 






I have 3" between bumper and rock guard, then 1/4" to trans cooler behind that

I installed a big ass radiator thats why it doesnt and my bumper is right up against the FLAT grill, great approach angle bad for hiding winch.

I will be moving things around and hiding the winch anyways, I dont want to cut my grill!
 






I used to be like that... I didn't want to drill or cut a single thing on my truck......... that went out the window... lol
