Re: Starting to prep for my Mile Marker 10,000lb winch
I guess I messed up with the post title. I'm actually getting a Smittybuilt 10,000 5.5hp, 218:1 ratio winch.
I will be getting it in just under a month and I found a shop for steel. The base support will be 1/2 inch thick 6" wide steel since i can get it for under $10 a foot. I'll weld up the tortional support and roller assembly support out of the 3/8". I need to wait to buy the winch first so I have the footprint and total mockup setup for fitment. Then I can start cutting and welding.
Seems there isn't much interest in winching, or at least in my direction with it. Just not interested in some big bulky bumper or having the winch out in the open. It'll make me money where I'm moving next year. North Dakota has tons of people end up in the ditch after the first snow. That and my farm work will make good use of it.
