    Did you ever do this?

    I never got around to buying or finding someone with a truck to work with me. Just knowing what I do know about these winches a feet forward mount is the best. I have had customers break the winch casting by not having equal pressure on the mounting bolts thus cracking the casting. I have thought about mounting the winch under the frame and using the guts from 2 snatch blocks to direct the cables to the front or rear of the truck. If anyone with a truck near Greenville SC wants me to work on this just let me know. I am pretty sure I can fabricate just about anything that can direct the cables.
