That best clamp is a pipe clamp that has a bolt that you can pull most of the extra clamp through lock the bolt down and then tighten it like a regular pipe clamp . Then to open it just flip the bolt up and the clamp opens. Try to stay away from the standard pipe clamp where you have about a 4 inches of slack that you have to twist with a flat head... in one hand and a 70 pound Jack pushed and resting on ur shoulder and balancing it. Trust me I've learned from experience

Pulled drivers outside door handle apart and fixed the slipped roll pin so that it opens the way it should. Drilled out a broken screw for the drivers side door stop strap and put in two new screws so my door won't swing open so far and knock my mirror out of adjustment. Spent a half hour with a rag and simple green cleaning stuff under the hood. I'm kinda anal about keeping my vehicles clean, and being as this one is new to me I get lots of time to tinker and clean. Makes it so much better when you go to work on something and it isn't grunged up and nasty.

Installed a spartan locker in my d35 to hold me over until I can afford an upgrade. Realized exactly how much undercarriage rust there was...sad days. I think I'm going to have to take the body off and sand, do some welding, and paint the frame.

This I'm sure is the wrong thread to post this but I need some opinions I have decided to upgrade to a winch But really can't justify the cost of the major "name brand" winches so are there any off brand winches that are any good ? I'm thinking an 8 or 9k lb winch what do you guys think ?
