Home-made track bar mount

Rather than spend the $$ on adjustable bars, or even bolt on extensions I went this route, much beefier than original.









This has my rear end "spot on" as far as centered after lift.
(now how to keep my pants up with-out suspenders)

I was thinking the same thing, , this was easier and I was running short of time. Still may do that though.

looks good, (but) your fair lead is to high! in relation to the lower part of the drum. you will be pulling your winch in an upward force while spooling under load.

the bottom of the drum should be center of the fair lead.

You know i noticed that is was high after i painted it up but that can be changed in about a week or so i don't have the time right now but i'm going to lower the fairlead to where it should be.

I noticed that mine seems to be like this on my Currie with the fairlead (---0). The hole in the mount is big enough that I should be able to drill lower although I feel like I shouldn't have to. Guess I should have waited for one better to have come out a couple of months later.
