Anyone ever seen one of these?!?

This is page 70 of my 1985 4WD Truck & 4 Runner owners manual.

Take a look at the winch capacity, pretty anemic I'd say.

I have a 1979 factory(or dealer item) warn 300 and bumper. Came out of Gilroy, California. Its rated at 1500 single line. My front crossmember had the nutserts to attach the bumper. Other than my truck, I have never seen that option, as for the 8 nutserts installed on the front crossmember. Interesting eh?

So there is at least one in existence! Can you post a pic of it? Can't figure why they would put such a low rated winch on a 4000lb vehicle <IMG SRC="smilies/confused.gif" border="0">

I like the part where they recommend killing the tree by wrapping CABLE around it. <IMG SRC="smilies/flipoff.gif" border="0"> <IMG SRC="smilies/pissed.gif" border="0">

Let's get some more trails closed by killing all of the trees <IMG SRC="smilies/idea.gif" border="0">

But at least you save your cable from being kinked by wrapping it around the tree and hookin it to its-self.</font>

correct me if im wrong but i think you can only get the winch option with a deisel which you could only get in a 4wd long bed reg cab. sorry but no winch option ever in a 4 runner, xtra cab or swb reg cab pick up.

<FONT COLOR="Red"> Yep, I've got the same factory manual and have had people look at me like I'm full of shit when I tell them there was an option for a factory winch....

But then again, people look at me like that regardless of what I say.

Remember, this was printed in 1985! And it says 'object' not tree. <IMG SRC="smilies/biggrin.gif" border="0"> <IMG SRC="smilies/eyemouth.gif" border="0">

C'mon, it could pull at least 2 tires that size! <IMG SRC="smilies/biggrin.gif" border="0"> <IMG SRC="smilies/biggrin.gif" border="0">

I just noticed that the winch in the pic doesn't look like the winch in the manual??
