    tonight... got my 3/0 cable in... wired it to the winch... ran the lines...
    but now it is dark and family time...

    so tomorrow going to mount the wireless module... ground the unit..... zip tie the lines out of the way... solder the ends... and clean her up......oh yeah bolt the bed back down.....


    may just yet get to test the winch out this weekend..... need a front d60 breather first....

    even closer now....

    both positive and negatives are ran.. soldered ends...
    all tied up on the frame nice and neat....

    control unit mounted and grounded.. antennea on the cab.....


    started hacking up my bumper... need to stop at the steel shop on Wednesday.. cant tommorrow as doctors appt....

    I cut my double tube bumper up and going to weld in some black diamond plate in and weld the roller fairlead in.. so it will only stick out a tad for the side rollers to stick out....


    may have to still cut under the bed more... as it seems the cable may hit the bed.. need to get bumper done and in and see if it is any better.....

    cant wait....
