Since we first learned of the issue, we've added more space underneath, however, that doesn't explain why it only happens occasionally.
I still maintain the clutch handle should be on the drivers side. That's how we originally designed them to work. Flip it and rotate the clutch.
When I'm winching or have somebody winching I'd like them to be on the drivers sides with the driver in the vehicle. That's why we set it up that way. Still, seems that shouldn't make a difference but without trying it both ways with no other changes...

I think I was one of the first few to get one. I have had it for several years.
So I went through some pics I had saved. It looks like I trimmed the driver side rail but the passenger side was fine. I did drop in the winch from the top. However I don't have the gussets on it. Why? I'm not sure.

I don't think I had to cut anything on my m12000

To my knowledge, wingnut3k's experience is an anomaly. We worked together to try and figure out what was different but never did come up with a solid answer.
You shouldn't need to trim anything to fit an M12000. If anybody else has, I'd like to know.

|wingnut3k||Yeah it is quite snug and I haven't heard of anybody else putting one in or making modifications to fit a winch, but it says on diy it was designed with the 8274 and 12000 in mind. Wish i took some before pictures so you could see exactly what was removed.|

|kayjef||holy crap that is tight|

on the drivers side i had to cut out a section of the top of the frame about 4" long for the motor to fit and some on top where it ties the front to the sides above the motor and clutch had to have some removed.

|kayjef||wow I didn't know that it could fit a m12000, what mods other than clearancing the grill did you have to make?|

I've got one with a m12000 in it, while I did have to make modifications to it to fit the winch in general it goes in and out with the grill off. Just takes a little wedging.
Odds are you will have to end up clearancing the grill some too

DIY4X A-Bomb Bumper Center Question
I am looking to purchase the A-Bomb bumper center from DIY4x, but I have a question I need answered before I do so. Does anyone know if you can install a winch after the abomb has already been installed on the truck? I don't have a winch yet (though I plan to run a laydown anywhere from 8000lbs - 10000lbs when funds permit). I don't want to have to remove the entire bumper later just to install a winch, but i also don't want to wait to install the bumper until i get a winch. I already emailed Kert about this, and he said he has never tried so he doesn't know for sure. If there is anyone on here who has the abomb that can asnwer this for me, that would be great. Just for everyones info, I plan on getting the normal abomb (no modifications) and it will be going on an 86 K5. Thanks in advance!
