Life is good.........8274

Just had to show some pics of it. I've wanted one forever. Got it from a guy that had " just some old 1960's looking thing of a winch". [img]images/graemlins/tongue.gif[/img]
I got to test it bofore I bought it too. [img]images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]
After a little hammerite paint and building the winchplate....here she is.
I feel like a proud papa. [img]images/graemlins/laugh.gif[/img]

Re: Life is good.........8274

Those behemoths are cool. No hiding them is there! Congrats too on the fact that every one of your drunk four wheeler friends now will make it an obligation to call and wake you up in the middle of the night to winch them out!

Re: Life is good.........8274

What a nice birthay gift for me, you really shouldn't have...oh you didn't. Good looking winch but why put it on yours you don't break and you don't get stuck from what I hear. I have a much better mounting postition in mind...

Re: Life is good.........8274

Goldtoybox, it did make a difference in cooling. (5-10 deg) I'm still fine......but must test further. [img]images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]

And John, don't forget that I took a winch off of mine that needs to find a new home. [img]images/graemlins/beach.gif[/img]
