Need a better thread title. Far out. Winches are always mounted behind the bullbar and attached to the bullbar. Unless your a capitalist and have two then you mount one to the rear as well.

You can buy a winch cradle and cut a whole in the bar. Tigerz11 sell some cheap cradles.

I'm changing the thread title because it's a **** title that means nothing

thanks to those who have helped.

Just a FYI, if my internet was not still in the dark ages in regards to speed, i would have searched but unfortunately they have no intention in the future to up our speed with the rest of the nation

Personally if it's an alloy bar I would use a proper alloy winch bar and a cradle supplied by the bar manufacturer so you don't have any problems. It's too late if you're in the bush and a standard alloy bar fails where the winch bar doesn't because it "may" have some extra reinforcing built in.

For the amount of messing around just get a factory steel bar. They can go pretty cheap, and if you live in Karratha the benefits of protection from an animal strikes are clear.

Jff45 did a fantastic write up about it, was neat as they come! I'd post a link here but unfortunately all photos in said link have been removed. :(

Probably due to an altercation he had with a few mods a while ago. Shame really.

Thanks for your positive comment on the work I did.

There was no altercation with any moderator, in fact, I received supporting private messages from mods.

My mistake was in allowing myself to be ripped off by the principal Admin's best mate.
I was unjustly banned.

I tried my best to be a productive member of this forum with different illustrated threads I did.
I removed all images from my threads when I found out from a friend that I had been publicly branded a "Twit" by the forum administration.

Hi Jff45,

Don't mention it mate! It's good to hear from you again!

Yeah I did hear about it! Sorry to hear what you went through. Hopefully it's water under the bridge now and we can all move on!

Happy days 8)
