Thats the one I'm thinking about. I just need a little more clearance, I don't hang on my belly too often. I have a 1.25 BL and manual so it should be easier for me to install..emphasis on 'should be'

I think theres a difference on the skid too since you have an 02' mine is 03'

That should be enough for the UHC without modding the tub according to the website. Even more so if you add a LOPRO.

It is different for an auto. The lopro also requires a lot of modification to the skid because of the shape of the transmission.

Huh. You would think they would make that clear on their website (The clearence part, I've heard about the LOPRO before). Maybe I overlooked something.

There is no integrated winch plate. Just some holes drilled on the top. It would be better wording if it said "no winch plate needed" IMO. I'm sure it will be fine as is, but if a pull was upwards on the winch, it would sure want to stretch the metal around the two rear bolts.

Well I figure thats what they mean. As thick as the metal is, I'm sure it will be fine. I don't hardly ever have to run line where I wheel. Last time was to pull an ATV back on the trail that rolled off the ledge and down the hill. If you think its a concern, you could always add a steel backing plate with longer hardware. Or a flat plate on top bolted to the frame mounts.

Yesterday I changed the plugs.
Would I get worse mileage with the previous ones gaped out to .05?
That was the average gap for them.

I installed new LED taillights, which I got from a Peterbuilt parts dealer. They look like the stock taillights but 10x brighter. The lights do not have a license plate light so I bought a additional white LED and installed into the housing. They turned out great but I expierenced the same problem that everyone does, The rapid flash blinkers. I tried to order the Trico EP-26 LED Flasher but the Autozone and Napa kept getting the standard one. I did the Stock Flasher mod that I found by way of a google search and worked like a charm and at no cost.

I spoke with matson and he said to use synthetic rope. Alo they are developing a new fairlead that will strengthen the winch mounting for use with steel cable extreme pulls.

For normal pulls, the existing mount will be fine.
