ORRRR... I could be a man, pick the **** up, slide that long shaft in the slot and be done with it!

I'm agreeing with this and it's not about to show how tough you are when you throw your back out lifting this thing. We have a saying at work as a steel worker, steel installer.. You can work hard or work smarter. I'd use the winch to lift itself kinda a no brainer and now it can be a one person job

this could be edited into so much gayness to represent what travis really meant, but i'm ok with his manlovin' ways, so i will let it be.

those 4 stars queer it up bad..,

15k is a dumb amount of weight to try and multi mopunt pull, yeah i know you built your own, but no, dumb and waiting for it to go ka bang.

i have to agree with shiny cop glasses mcgee. double reciever mounts will make it more stable in general for the sideloads all winches deal with, stronger cause duh, twice as much mount=twice-ish the strength.

you're just going to end up with a lot of bent frames amd broken mounts, if not some winches flying at the truck it's trying to pull.

just for gits and shiggles go get stupid burried and have one of these 5 trucks tether to a solid point and winch you a few times to test it and see if some doesmn't go wrong.it may not, either way get pics and come back with the results.

travis that's a nice looking bumper, but it doesn't seem to fit the truck or follow the lines at all. to be honest why bother with a bumper? i'd have just went with a receiver mount back there tied into the frame really damn good.

p.s. is that a ball of aluminium foil in the hitch hole?

Gotchya, never heard it called that before now. Must be a yankee thing.. But it's for show only, way to heavy to actually use. Wouldn't hook it there anyways. Badass d ring though.

Messed around a little in the pasture. Hearing is obviously much better, rides like it did on 44s and makes a butt ton more power.

we use them on cranes for lifting very heavy things where you need multiple cables, like large underground concrete structures used in sewers.
