    Are the mounts welded on or bolted? If they were bolted on you could possibly swap from either side and add a spacer plate or shim etc. Should bring it close.

    I welded up some brackets to day and got it mounted. Still need to figure out how to mount my turn signals. It's not ready for any winching yet I need to add a few gussets for strength. I think with a little bit of tweaking I can straighten it up. It definitely wasn't built straight but I'll make it work.

    A tweak or 2 and a couple of hits with a mallet with bring it into shape. Have mercy on any fool that ends up on the receiving end of that bumper. Jeez this thing is lethal...

    It looked the the po hit something with it on the drivers side. The center section is solid but the outside is kinda flimsy.

    Haven't been driving it much lately since I've got a company truck I figured I'd better start it up an clear the snow off. It started right up it was a little cold natured til the choke opened but ran fine after that.

    A decent come a long would pull one of these trucks out of anything
    A couple of pulleys and strops and you should be set up for most anything.

    I have ideas for a rear mounted winch. Or maybe actually just keep a come a long under the tray with some tools

    Haha I was in a raffle for a winch from a local 4x4 shop I was hoping to win. But probably gonna get a harbor freight special. Probably after the holidays I'll get it. And may have a chance to go test it out while clearing old logging roads on the farm.

    A good quality used gadget will always trump a cheap new one Might be worth your while to rebuild an old one...

    You plan on using your truck for rescue retrievals? That is some serious gear

    Some jackass in an SUV is going to back into it and take out their rear window I'd opt for function over form any day of the week...

    It sticks out a little bit. I definitely get a lot of funny looks going down the roaroad.

    A bit like a reverse tow truck!
    Run some cordage from the hoop up to your headache bar. It'll lift up any tree limbs on the trail as you drive through

    Got a chance to do a wheeling in the woods. This little truck did awesome. Sloppy mud all the way up the hill dodging ruts (2 foot deep) the whole way. Just wish I had a little more clearance tagged a rock with the lower a arm. Center skid plates are already in the works. I'm definitely going to be installing an electric fan. Never pegged the gauge but to high for comfort.

    Still having some issues with timing. Especially when its cold. Seems like I'm having some kind of issue with vacuum advance.

    Try disconnecting the vacuum advance and watch with a timing light as you rev the engine. Cold weather is here, maybe they used a heavy grease when lubing the fly weights in the distributor and it's sticking? Once warmed up things will move a bit easier. A handheld vacuum pump to check the vacuum advance will let you do the same thing.
