Wench Installation's

Can anyone suggest some ideas and maybe pictures as to where and

how you have your "wench's" secured?

I'm sure the answers will be both educational and amusing!

I want a wench on each side of my bumper. I propose securing these beautiful wenches with rope padded with velvet covering so as not to leave any marks. I will untie them every evening and allow them to come in and sleep with me. After all you have to keep your wenches happy or else they may want to sit on someone else's bumper.

The mechanical ones!

Yea, bought a 6000lb and not sure what the best setup should be, I have plenty of 1/2 plate steel and angle iron to whittle something up with.

You can do like do once in while, go on line and look for bolt on winch brackets for your jeep , get the installation instructions and then make your own.......sometimes they even give you all the dimensions

Just watch craigslist or eBay. I picked up a 200.00 winch plate with mini bull bar locally on craigslist for 30.00 and it already had everything to bolt up to the factory bumper.
