    I thought someone mentioned the plate the winch sits on flexing or something like that. How thick was the steel??

    Oh yeah, I forgot about that, I welded on a few plates right there any way to mount my 2" hitch, so I dont have that problem.

    I've got a problem with my front plate that the winch mounts to flexing. It flexes to the point that the winch will rest against the front plate that the roller mounts to. I've addressed a way to fix it, I just haven't taken the time to do it yet.
