It's mainly for trail use but I've been using it like my main vise.

Thanks Louie!

Now there's something I want that I didn't know I wanted two days ago

Back when my jeep was stock, I put my dads 8274 on it, and the old saggy front springs hated me!

I imagine mine will drop some once I put that beast on.


On a side note. Does anyone have a spare winch remote they want to part with?

I didn't get one with this winch. I plan on putting a switch in the cab but I still want a remote for times when I'm not in the vehicle. I usually am braced against a tree winching someone else if I'm outside the jeep.

I just got a hoist control from work and put an end on it.

I may go to Northern Tool and see if I can find something like that.

I think the Harbor Freight wireless winch remote works with our Warn winches.

This guy has a HF 10 mintues away.

Thanks!

Oh, I forgot to throw this on there but I started cleaning up the bumper and bracket. Thought I would just touch up where I cut but that was going to look crappy.

A guy in our jeep club posted that he used one of their controls on his M8000. I noticed they were $28 (I think). With the 25% coupon they always mail, that's a $21 wireless controller.

If you do it, I'll be curious to see how it works.

I almost traded my M8000 for one of your winches straight up. I only didn't due to the mount. They look fun to work on.

I met a guy at a club event that had one on his warn. He had used several dozen times with no issue.

I will let you know how it does as I plan on getting one. The great thing about the one I bought is the mount it came with. I've been able to make it work with my existing bumper or soon to be.

That's what I like to hear. I'll hardwire a switch in the cab at some point but this will get me by for a bit.

Thanks man! I'm glad you have enjoyed the build thus far. It's not flashy at all and I try to be crafty and thrifty about some things. It's a passion and a hobby.

Well I got the bumper and mount primed still hanging in the garage. I will go over it with some 220 grit sandpaper, wash them down, and put some semi-flat black enamel on both.

I'll have to do this on next week as I'm visiting the folks in Athens for the next couple of days. My mom's birthday is tomorrow so it was a good reason to come down.

Well I got the mount and bumper painted. I put a couple coats on then waited 45 minutes and put two more on. I went with the semi flat black over the gloss. I think I like it pretty well.



I also started to finally repair my frame from the seized nut inside that holds the steering box up. I put a tack on the nut and filled in some of the cuts the disc made. I will grind it down with a flap disk and put a patch over it.

Well I am one step closer to having my new winch on.

Got the frame patched (and what a hack job is looks to be) and primed.





After letting the primer set up I lightly sanded it and washed it off. Then shot the black on there.





Now the waiting game begins...because I'm off to Raleigh for the next several days to buy a house.

I meant to mention this, but I forgot. I have noticed an odd side effect of the 8274 (actually, I'm guessing it has more to do with the mount). In still conditions, my temp pops up to just under my "fan on" temp (I'm using the Beck Arnley switch with a Ford 2 speed fan) starting at 60 mph and going back to normal at around 70. Below 60, cool as a cucumber, over 70, same deal. It's creating a dead air pocket (or a slight vaccum ) behind the winch in that speed range.

Any cross breeze completely negates the effect and I haven't noticed it in either head or tail winds, though it would make sense that it should still occur. I never noticed it before I put the e-fan in, but I was watching a bit more closely right after the fan install. Initially, I thought I had the beginning of a problem until I put 2 and 2 together. The total increase in temp is 5-10 degrees. It was just the deviation from the dead steady temp that made me notice it.

This is more of a heads up so that you don't start thinking you have a cooling problem "if" it even happens on your Jeep. To my knowledge, my fan has never kicked on at speed due to this and I've driven at those speeds on several 100+ days, but as I said, it does run a few degrees hotter when this happens. I'd also go out on a limb and say that my CJ grill isn't helping...

The front end looks to be coming along nicely. Good work!

Grant, thanks for the heads up. I too have the Beck Arnley switch and Taurus electric fan so I'll keep my eye on it. I still need to modify my setup so that the high speed can run at it's highest speed. Right now the temp switch will send power to both low and high speed relays causing a speed in between. It still shouldn't be a problem though.
