Is that a wench on your truck?

Nothing makes a boy happier than a new gadget and a Warn winch is right up there.

Note to Matt.....thanks for bringing to my attention..I hadn't posted the size...it's a VR12,000. A 12,000lb winching ability. Of course, using a couple snatch blocks increases that by leaps and bounds.

I had arranged for Sportsman Light Truck in Kamloops to do the install. Justin was the brother in the shop, for Saturday, and it all went smoothly.

He had to turn the motor, and this get a bit of wiggle room for the solenoid,  to get enough room at the top, to be able to fit in the winch and still be able to close the lid.

Justin had to turn the motor a tad...to make room for the solenoid.

 The hole in the bumper...especially designed by Aluminess to accommodate a winch.


Warn winches   www.warn.com    And..looking this morning on their website, looks like I am entitled to a $50.00 rebate too!!!!!

Now  have to learn to use the darned thing. Lots of good stuff on YouTube, but really..I need to get with someone that knows how to actually use a winch properly.
