Finished up the winch late last night ( gave up on finding the controller and picked up a wireless one). Then hit up some trails this afternoon to try out the new toy. Lol

I had to do the same thing this past fall. Both of my shackles broke in half.

But while I was working I found this

Nice, it's a joyful experience ain't it? Haha. And yea, I uncovered some cancer when I tore into mine to; rear crossmember looked like Swiss cheese.

The winch and cradle are harbor freight specials that I got a few years back for my old truck; finally got around to mounting them. Haha

Oh yes haha. My spare tire carrier is rotting away also. The PO towed a boat so the back foot or so is rusted real bad. I had to replace my rear diff cover after I did the shackles and hangers. A little hole rusted through.

Ah ok. I was looking at the harbor freight winches but wasn't sure how good they are

The joys of living in the rust belt. Haha

I've only played around with the winch a few times, but so far I'm pretty impressed. We'll see how it holds up when I actually need it, but I don't foresee any issues.

Yep. Lol. So much fun..not!

I'll look into the winch some more. How big is it? 9,000lbs?

Haha

The one I have is a 6,000lb, but I believe they only carry the 9,000lb and 12,000lb now.

The 9,000 is probably about right for our trucks. I'm afraid the 6,000 may be a bit under powered. I plan on stepping up to a 9,000 eventually (once this one burns up of course. Haha)

Yeah that makes sense. Better to be overpowered than underpowered...wait, there's no such thing as overpowered

Went for a little Sunday drive and stopped off at a few spots along the river.
