Winching and Wrenching

Put the Warn to work straightening out a bent radiator support. It was bent like the red line.

Post some of your odd projects where the winch came in handy.

I have used mine to keep a tree from falling in my pool and to close my garage door when a spring broke...

Apparently we have twin SIII's. Even our avatars are similar.

I used my winch to pull a trailer out of the woods and to put a dead VW on a Uhaul trailer.

Yeah, minus the black door tops and bumpers on yours they look very similar, I have been thinking about the black bumpers though...
Maybe one day they will meet up, ill probably take it down to one of this VA meets once i get some of the leaks sorted and a set of tires.
Is your winch a PTO one?

Mine is an 8274 and the door tops match now.

I have also used my winch to straighten the Series bumper ends.

They're overrated as off road tools.
