    biggray71 - that is actually the NorthSky standard program that they give to us on our free sites.........I used the template for the automotive enthusiast group I think. Funny thing, my old template wasn't available anymore, seems NorthSky is doing some "improvement" activity (they have video capability now!), so I had to change it to fix my formatting problem.

    Mudhog - main reasons I got the winch were for the hunting - either to get the elk out or keep the truck from getting stuck in the swamp. Plus peace of mind wherever I go (Sand Lake) if I get stuck I now can get out (as soon as I get a Pull Pal! LOL)

    Looks great. Hope you don't mind if I make a suggestion but I would find a used lower trim (the painted part that hangs over the bumper) and cut it so it doesn't come close to the bumper. By using a different one, you can always put the good painted one back on if you ever need to. You can also just take it off but it may support some of the grill. When your Blazer starts to flex, that bumper will be kissing the trim and will dent both the bumper and trim. I also tried to raise mine up past the trim but it didn't help under extreme flex. I finally removed the trim.

    Wow - I'm surprised you were missing only one - thought for sure I took out more than that

    I don't know if I can make it to Sand lake or not - is there a lot of CK5ers going?

    Shawn, suggestions are what's great about this site - learning from someone who's "been there, done that". I much appreciate your insight, and can definitely see how the bumper and trim can hit. Didn't think about it.............probably wouldn't have till it was crunched. Thanks, think I'll try your suggestion about "creative trimming".

    I see how it starts...............a little trim here, next thing you know I'm hacking my fenders like you and Steve!!!!!!![​IMG]
