And any winch is better than no winch.
ISO 9001 companies have less then 3 defects per 1 million parts. there are some other requirements but that is the big one. its not easy for them to get.

emilior Finally got my winch plate this weekend. All holes lined up perfectly--no drilling required. I had also ordered 2 tow hooks from Ebay, which was delivered Friday. The only other items I needed were 2 bolts to replace the ones connected to the front sway bar brackets. I had to insert 3 washers to get the plate leveled. I got the bolts from Menards -- 10mm x 1.5 x 50mm allen head, which matches the tow hook bolts real well. They were a little longer than what I needed, and it was tight getting them in, but they work.

All in all, the installation was straightforward, and relatively easy.

Here are some pics:




I routed the wires under the grill, and up by the radiator

emilior The pre-existing holes in the plate were in the way. I don't have tools to elongate the holes, and using a hand drill to do it is just asking for a big pita. I figure $38 to save me from the aggravation is a good deal.

Maybe I can sell the plate at Ebay?

ookxtreme same here... i'd like one for the emergecy....
seems like a pretty good deal....

why did you buy another winch plate?... why couldn't you just drill 4 holes to match the frame rail holes... why spend another $38? or was the one that came with to short?

thanks

Noah Plz keep us informed on the quality as you go-I also need a winch,but dont have a ton o' $

emilior The universal mount plate that came with the winch don't have any holes that line up on the frame rails. I ordered the Jeep winch mount from Harborfreight. For $38 bucks, it should simplify the installation for me. I'll post picks of the install as I go along.

emilior Got my new winch today. I'll post pics once I get it installed.

AzTJ Those solenoids look exactly like some off old Ford trucks. Easy replacements right at the auto parts store

My thought exactly! The Warns or Superwinches were too much money for someone like me who goes out wheelin once a month. I try to pick conservative trails, but sometimes, I do get stuck (specially in mud), and I just want to avoid that nasty, sinking feeeling that you are helpless and need someone to bail you out.

Atlas 9500 lb winch

I just ordered the Atlas 9500 lb winch. I needed one to get myself out of trouble, and I was trying to decide between this and the smittybuilt. The Atlas included the mounting plate, and looked like a better deal. Anyone have experience with this winch?
