Do it yourself Super Winch installation

Super Winch Do it yourself installation notes on how to mount and hook up

Step 1-Ratchet strap the winch while it's still in the box to a 2x4 stretcher.

Step 2-Team lift it across the creek and back to where the truck is stuck.

Step 3-Mount winch, unmount winch, remount winch, unmount winch.

The mounting plate is designed to slide into a hitch receiver. Our new Super Winch LP8500 lined up with the pre-existing holes on the mounting plate, but it looks like I'll need to grind a little off each handle for it to fit nice and tight.

I have always wanted a winch. Not just for getting unstuck, but for lifting stuff, dragging junk, moving things around.....oh I can think of reasons and make excuses all day long.

Mark's been lobbying for a winch for years. I finally gave in --- we'll see if it lives up to the hype. :-)
