Amsteel supplier? Custom winch cables/accessories?

Well so far I have been striking out. Any ideas?

I contacted 3 places for raw 9/16" Amsteel. The first two referred me to the third and no-can-do. It looks like 1/2" is about all I can get - in...

That is a good idea, if you are content with keeping the winch in one spot. In my case, the winch needs to be able to go on the front and rear of the truck, and I also have several uses for it that...

I measured the space in the bumper this evening. It looks like I could squeeze in a 4" square cross bar.

I didn't realize it, but the bumper mounts are directly welded to the top of the tow...

I understand the electrical side of it - voltage drop from cable length, current through, and wire gage. Im also aware of the spool layers vs. load capacity. The first and second spool layers are...

Yep. I know what you mean. I remember calculating vector forces in physics class. The idea is to make a "triangle" where the third point is where the winch attaches to. By having 2 sides of the...

I am checking on the feasibility of getting the hitch fabricated. I got a source that may be able to help with it. We're tossing ideas around right now. Looking at smoky_diesel's mount is a good...

Thanks for the pictures. That is what I want to avoid. The brackets hanging down on the sides (middle picture shows it, but hard to see) is going to be an issue = too easy to hang up on. The air dam...

This one?







That would certainly do the trick. The hard part - it isn't a manufactured bracket and, as much as I like to fabricate stuff, I don't have the resources right now to do so. I...

Is that the Curt receiver? If so, it has flanges that stick down pretty low. If you get the camera level with the underside of the truck the brackets are below the air dam. I don't want to eat up any...

I got some other input and seem to have favorable reviews. The only negative I have heard is they may wear a bit quicker than some others. For the price they seem like a good option. Order in.
