I ran the transmission speed sensor output wire to a dakota digital box and connected that to my speedo input and then adjusted the dakota digital to get me close to the right reading. I have a 242hd with a sye and no speed sensor output so wiring the dakota digital box off my tranny sensor was my simplest option.

My wife was raised in arkansas, she's the hogs fan. She bought that shirt for me but it was to small so now its her favorite shirt.

Thanks, I didnt have a real plan when i started but I'm happy with how it turned out. Im about to start the front but i dont have a plan again, just want it to match the rear somewhat and hold my winch, so i will see how that goes.

I just bought sched 80 1.5" i.d. pipe for the front. I will probably use more pipe than i bought. I have a warn 8274 to go in it but i think it might restrict air flow to much. What do you guys think? Its a huge winch. My other option would be a 12000# badlands from harbor freight, its smaller but probably not as reliable as the 8274. I havnt thought much about tucking it but thats a good idea.

That 8274 is huge. Absolutely huge. But it's an awesome winch. You can cut the front and tuck it in, but yeah it will restrict air flow a lot.
