Re-clocking a winch is a 5 minute job.

Someone dig through old photos of the submarine...All-Pro with HF winch...worked great till the all-pro ripped off the truck and had to be redesigned

It'll work but you know better....cool.

I don't know better, but I do have the reenforcement tabs on the AllPro bumper (on the back is stamped "Homedad Specials".

Wish I had 300 bux to buy a HF right now.

This was from the blue rm

Thanks for that reply Smalldog. I used to have a harbor freight winch for my 92 4runner and that winch worked for over 3 years without an issue (actually used it at least 30 times during that duration). So i'm pretty optimistic about this one.

I just just spoke to AP and they informed me that any 8000 - 9500 pound winch with a removable remote box can be mounted.

Also, the 9k winch is going for $199... pretty tempting.


Does that mean we can't fit the 12k winch? I'm fine with 9 if I have to

FYI...you can almost always find a coupon in a magazine to get that winch for 299.
I went to bookmans and went thru the 4WD mags until I found a $299 coupon, bought the mag, drove to HF and purchased my 12k winch.

I was thinking I had to wait for a sale also but guy at HF told me to go look in mags...he saved me $200!
