Where the existing lifting bracket is, would be a good place to mount them. Just a thought.
    Solved. Two toolboxes now. Had that 916 box laying in the grass for years.

    Winch mount installed. Try to get the holes drilled for the 5 ton winch tomorrow. The winch will sit down in the hole on the platform, instead of being up in the air like the 45k winches. It will have a roller on the trailer neck for it move over.

    Going to also fashion a spare tire carrier in there somewhere next to the pony motor yanmar L70 and the 15gal hydraulic tank.


    Also diagnosed a non working blower motor as no powe to the blower switch.

    Also installed a rear window guard it didnt have

    Better do some measuring with that, I had the exact same plan, put a 916 winch platform on a 915, found out the trailer will hit it . . . had to abandon the plan.

    Looks to clear with an RGN with the narrow neck. If not I can cut the end caps off the platform down some in the middle. Some pics that Red posted show alot of room with an RGN and one behind a 915 on gov deals as well shows it coming up to right where the fender flares at the top so it will be tight. But it wont be as tall as the 916 winch with the 20k winch between the frame on the platform.

    It is also a 916A2 platform which is different than the normal 916 and 920 platforms which are taller by 3 inches on how it mounted to the truck

    Not much on Detroit's period. One reason I fall short of wanting a HET or HEMTT. Not just your's James. I atleast called looking for a 915 series truck though but you didn't have any on the sales lot.

    Looks like that trailer will work. I know with a van trailer it would not work on mine.
