sounds about the same as the blowing version before - fairly meaty 1298cc of raw power

hte previous one was made upof about 5 different bits welded together and welded to the chassis - the rear view mirror doesn't vibrate like mad now ! :lol:

Is that Winchmax going in the front or the rear?

Please can you post some detailed photos of your rear winch tray as I'm interested in this and could not get to Tong to paw all over your truck then!

I've only seen 2 examples thus far:

forums.offipalsta.com/showthread.php?t=48063&page=6

and

www.suzuki4x4products.com/nieuwe_site/pr.../photos/photo11.html

so I'd like to see how yours is done.

Cheers

asked quite a lot of people about them ( made myself a bit of a nuisance :whistle: )
every one who had one rated them and one guy went on to say it was faster than his warn 9.5 and another said he used his every day in his business and had had no problems
so at £350 with a 11mm plasma rope and albright style solenoids it seemed a good buy :)

winch now fitted by the wonderful guys at Staffordshire 4x4

Attachment winch8.jpg not found



apparently modifying the bumper to fit the winch required cutting off the strengthener fillets for a warn 8274 was a pig - took a plasma torch in the end :ohmy:



Attachment winch5.jpg not found



the solenoid box is mounted neatly under the bonnet

Attachment winch6.jpg not found



isolator switch behind the passenger seat



the electrics from the old winch was a bit dubious too so they were all replaced with cables at twice as thick :huh:



stealth winch! :)
