I needed to mount the winch before I made the front bumper and other connecting bars.

I had to cut back that bottom front clip support to make room for the winch, then boogered some 14 gauge to it, ground the boogers down. I got some rusty piece of 2x2 .120 wall square tube from a friend to make the other mounting point for the winch.

The main frame is 2x3x.188, so I probably could have just drilled the 3/8th holes through the frame but I decided to sleeve them and weld the sleeves in. Probably unnecessary, but whats wrong with a little overkill.

Started to work on the stinger and other supporting bars. I need to get, or make, an anti-spring back device for the bender. bending that much of an angle with DOM by hand is rough
