Flopped my 60 at the Ramble, resulting in a crooked windshield frame.

This shows where it impacted when it flopped over (past horizontal). You can see the gap where the windshield popped out. This was after we had started working on it - the gap started out 2 to 3 times that size. I don't have a picture of the driver's side, but there was a matching gap there.

This shows the entire setup, with the winch cable running from the Dodge, to the big strap, back to the Dodge, then to the smaller strap, then back to the Dodge.

Here's how we did the straps on the truck. Part of the time we used 2x4 blocks as well, and at one point also had the big strap on the horizontal part up top (running across the top of the truck, not on windshield).

Every time we pulled it, the truck leaned way over, but after a certain point (and with the bumper strapped to that tree) it did bend the windshield posts back. We actually went too far to start with, and had to turn the 60 around to go back some and fine-tune it.
