wood working tools on steel fabrication
keep up the good work
I took the little rubber pads off the clamp feet at least
Just hoping I'll still be able to find them when I'm done...
Last one for now. The angled pieces are the cutoffs from the end of the bumper.
Mock your winch up on that and make sure your through the bumper "tube" clears the rope at both ends of the spool!!!! Don't ask me how I know that.
Well, i hope it fits but didnt think about that. Just figuring the mounting plate has the right location for it.
Looks great, almost ready to wind on the rope! Good idea to check that now
Got it mounted finally
Now, looking at it mounted, is there any kind of bushing that goes between the drum and the end support piece? Lools like a pretty good gap

When i had it sitting on the ground didnt even look like it needed anything. Now that i have it on there i can definitely tell something doesnt look right.
Thats what I really want to do with my 8274 but unfortunately my sagi-swap is an inch too wide! I used a 72-75 steering box bracket that pushes it towards center quite a bit. Looks good btw!
Bumper looks good. I like how you boxed in the cutout for the fairlead. I keep wanting to mount my 8274 to the front bumper like this, but my TDK frame has a tubular cross member immediately behind the C-channel bumper. I'd have to cut out the cross member to install the winch.
One more picture since i finally got the fender painted to match
now winch looks good
fenders look good
windshield wipers wacky
you know we look at all things around here
One thing at a time
Wipers are probably next in line. Gotta wire in the winch then mount the motor for wipers
We don't need no stinkin wipers. Jeep looks good
