GT, thx. I wasn't sure if the winch mounted in toward the radiator or on the opposite side. The pics were very helpful.

If you take the grill off and weld 2 angle iron to the front bumper and bolt your fairhead to them then cut a square hole the grill big enouth to go over the fair head it works good. I don't know how to post pics on here but send me your e-mail and i'll send some
