I may know where I can get ahold of a winch off a 5-ton. How hard is it to mount it on a m35a2? I know there is a member that has done this but I can't remember who it is. I just need to know if it will bolt up without major modification.

I have fabed winches on the back of big rigs so I know I can do it I guess I was really wanting to know how it would look if you had to do a bunch of fab work. Massm35a2 I think answered that. Looks like it sticks out alot further than a duece winch. Am I right?acetomatoco said:Better to get the winch and trade it for the Deuce one...however, anyone with a load of scrap metal, and torches and drills can mount the winch on a Deuce... it will not be pretty....
I have a hydraulic motor hooked to my winch where the PTO shaft would be, I think it is this way because the deuce PTO is on the drivers side and the 5 ton is on the passengers side, so the shaft would not work.acetomatoco said:All that extra weight further out front is not going to make the life of the steering components very happy. I question comment "hook up the hydraulics".. As these were driven by shaft and pto in their original config.
If you wanted to follow ACE's advice and swap for a duece winch, I have one that I would love to trade for a five ton winch... The more I look at my M35A2C and how I use it, the less that I want one on the duece...acetomatoco said:Better to get the winch and trade it for the Deuce one...
