Thank you. Ok, so I decided not to cut my grill out until I had something figured out for replacing it. In the meantime I was tired of it, and the bumpers matching the body, so I went ahead and sprayed them with some flat black. I also hit up the LHS in hopes that they would have some HPI stock car wheels, and a couple pair of Pro-Line 1.9 Flat Irons. Well they had one pair of Flat Irons, and no stock car wheels. Since I was there though, and had already planned on spending some money, I went ahead and grabbed myself this.



In order to mount it I had to make a small L bracket and attach it to the inside of the body, and then mark and drill the holes for the winch to bolt to. So anyhow I got all that done, got it all wired up, and now I'm just waiting for the epoxy to set up so that I can put it to the test. I did do a small test after I got it mounted, and hooked the winch around the leg of a chair in my work shop, and it reeled the truck right in without breaking a sweat. I'm looking forward to tomorrow when I can really work it, and get some vid of it in action. For now though here a few updated pics.

Thanks. I'm pretty stoked to see it with some 1.9's as well. I think it will look a whole lot better.

Are you gonna run shorter hexes too?

Cliff Climbers seem to be dominating this section lately, bet the cheap price has something to do with that.

I might, I haven't quite decided yet. I want to see how the new wheels and tires look with the stock width, and go from there. Yeah they must be selling like hot cakes at the current price.
