    Sorry can't help you with the winch mount. Thought I would throw a few pics out for reference.

    Anyone remember this feature? I don't think I ever saw it, or was too young to notice.

    That is a Warn Combo Kit - Warn no longer makes it for that style rig - but you might be able to still find one

    Yes I remember the door *old fart 45 yrs old* they put some gear it on a few episodes and I think a bail jummper once. I like it always thought it was neat. However the roll bar wouldn't help much like that would it.

    You gotta find some old episodes. Ever seen Simon & Simon, similar show only they ran around in a Power Wagon.

    I always remember that shot of the Fall Guy truck making that jump and the beginning of the theme song.

    If you ever get to watch it again, look closely as the truck lands and you can watch the front axle snap like a toothpick on re-entry. :laugh:

    I just listened to the theme song to that show for the first time in years. I never realized how sexually frusterated the Fall Guy really was. That song makes him sound pathetic.

    Thanks, I haven't seen that in years. Still gets a :thumb: from me.

    :what: Which jump are you referring to? The first one, you can see both axles are trussed and it takes it well. The last one coming over the guardrail, there are no trusses and the dr. front tire bows down, but if you pause it, the axle isn't snapped. Maybe a ball joint? :dunno:

    The jump over the bus was funny angle.

    The Charger running into the train and blowing up was funny, too. What a waste of a Dukes car.

    I agree on the Charger, but they went through what, 18 cars, per Dukes episode?
