It's actually in development right now. It's a bit easier to work on that one because our normal resources are maxed out and this project is being done at another shop albeit long distance, so it will be a bit slower.

That's what I had thought. Great rig, hopefully one day I can get my LJ built like that one.

That's a nice clean design. Great work gentlemen!

Wait a minute, I was all bummed out that the bumper wouldn't work for me because of how the Warn 8274 mounts with the feet forward. The plate mounts in all the stock holes so, is there any reason why I couldn't just mount the Warn plate on top of the bumper?

Well, it's on it's way. Things got off to a slower start due to an issue I never considered. Essentially, I designed the latch to go with my concept of a dual rate bar. Whilst browsing the 'net one day, I stumbled upon a patent with drawings that had been granted to another company besides ORO.

In a nutshell, what it looks like is someone took a pic of the ORO set up, made a drawing of it and then got it patented and the wording of the patent precludes any use of my sliding latch design. So now I can't ethically use a design I developed so I'm developing another method similar to a locking clutch.

That is so sweet...

I was curious how the backside looked after seeing pics of the recovery tabs. I guess the it's all about the way the load is applied? I thought there may be some kind of backing plate.

Are you saying someone stole your idea and pattened it after it was on the market?

While I'm not a fan of the stock swaybar purely because if you run it and go offroad, you disconnect it and that's not really very conducive to performance of your rig offroad, I do recognize that not every rig grows at the same rate.

We always strive for a mechanism for folks to take advantage of our products in the short term and as their rig matures and skill levels increase, the products will be able to grow with them.

As with the tank skid that lets you raise it up later when you figure out the value of a body lift, the winch can be mounted with the stock swaybar even though I much prefer it slid back to keep the fairlead out of the rocks and whatnot.

You could, but I suspect you'd have to remove the down turned flange across the back and then bolt it to the bumper across the back to to achieve the same resistance to deflection.
