Next was winch. Installed Rough Country winch plate W/ a 12,000 Harbor freight winch.
Winch and plate went on easy for the most part, just time consuming.
only problem i had is, since i have an air dam, i have the thread and clip where just a hole should be for the third bolt for the winch plate. Couldn't get the threaded rod out of the clip so i ended up just using that instead of the proper grade 8 bolt they include with the plate and the flag nuts they include. Hopefully itll hold, but realistically its not rated for anywhere near the same weight as the stuff they include. Still should do great for my uses, though.
As for wiring, had a problem getting it to fit with the fancy terminals our trucks use. Managed to rig it to just barely fit. Put plastidip on it just in case somehow the breaker touches my frame, to possibly avoid a short. So far hasnt moved at all and i did test the winch a few feet to ensure it works. When i get some straps and stuff i'm going to actually test it with a real load.
Last thing i did so far was harley heads and tails. One of the tails was defective so they are sending me a replacement set but i love the look.
NOTE: I know the bumper pads are missing, lol. I Broke two of the clips on one side so i ordered replacements and i got them a while back but am kinda liking the look of the bumper without em. Gives it that nice rough look. Gona probably put em back on once i have the smittybilt light bar mounted, but for now they are off to give me more room to get my hands in there and tighten bolts and such when installing. Just waiting to get my angle grinder back so i can shave down the fairlead plate thingy so the smittybilt fits.
