Well this is not really an update on any build mods. That's actually the point. It's time to note the quality of engineering and work done by Bryce and Jim. Since June we've hit everything from the dunes for a week to 3-4 times at the Mounds to twice at OSTC to 3 trips to Canada. I've run the snot out of it and twisted it up pretty good with no problems save a couple loose bolts on the hydro assist that we found on the first outing.









Kudos to you both. Thanks again.

[shameless plug for me!]

ohh yeah, I'm "for hire" but not cheap. If you want something of this caliber done let me know and we can talk about options if you are serious.

Well, since I'm getting old and lazy, I got tired of using my winch for double duty as a front pull down. One of the biggest issues is that I had gotten in a precarious position with my front pulled down. When we decided to pull cable, I let up on the pull down and then it got really tippy. So, I decided to separate the 2 functions. I picked up a T-Max 2300 pound ATV winch from Ironman. It mounts to my front cross tube of the frame, directly underneath my 9000 pound winch.



The cable runs up and over a cross tube that is a frame stiffener in the steering area and doubles as the upper mount for the limiting strap. (note; limiting strap not mounted) I added a 2" diameter pulley on the back side of the tube for the cable. For the moment the end of the cable is mounted to the limiting strap tab. This will move.



Then the cable runs down to a snatch block mounted to the axle and then back up to the cross tube. For the moment I have a cheap snatch block from TSC on the axle. It's only rated at about 500 pounds and I don't think it's going to hold up so I will need to make my own snatch block. This one worked out pretty well though because when I sucked the front end down the thin side plates bent in the compound angle needed for everything to line up. This makes for a great template for a stiffer one.



So now I won't have to crawl underneath in the slop to be able to use my winch when needed.

Well, this thread has been quite for a while .

Do you still have the above pictures, without red x's? I am looking for some exhaust ideas on my build.
thanks

Sorry, just saw the reply. I had pulled the pics down to make room for new ones. I'll have to go back and look for the exhaust pics.
