Limb lifters

Nothing really new or different with the limb lifters I installed, but I did use a unique way to attach the cables to the roll cage and brush guard. I used black PVC coated nylon straps sandwiched between stainless screws and fender washers. I couldn't find a clamp I liked and really didn't want the bars to get scratched. I could hang on these with all my weight and they didn't deform or stretch.

They are quite snug and grippy. I have the cables torqued down pretty taught and the straps don't moved when I pull on the cables.

I got them through Amazon. They came in a roll of 5 yds.

I used pruning shears to cut it and punch holes in them for the screws.

Hardware is all stainless with aluminum and stainless turnbuckles. Lowes should have it all.
