      winch problems

      Careful, you probably know, but those of us that did the install on our own know there are two spacers used to get the 16.5 in the bumper. They are basically a thick washer.

      You got the winch out without removing bumper? Damn son! (Never would have happened with a CTD truck.).

        Late night long day and I wasnt going to let it beat me. Yes on the washers. A plate tack welded inside of bumper instead of the washer would be great. I guess there is one benefit of the 6.4. I cant imagine doing this with an inter cooler right behind it. Wound my new line this morning. took some to get it to catch on the drum but it looks great in there. Had Jim at Bubba rope make it. 1/2" ( more like 3/4") safety red with the integrated eye. Also a 80' extention line eye each end and two gator jaw's. Nice stuff. Test it in WV in a couple weeks.

          What winch rope did you end up with? The ones on his website say they're rated for 9-10k winches.

          You have a 16.5Ti right? Does he offer different rope for the heavier duty winches?

            I called and talked with James Flowers, he owns bubba rope, He had built this rope as a prototype for a show. 31K breaking. He can build any size, any color, any length.
