Fingers crossed that the legs didn’t warp while welding them up

I don’t see why people hate snake blinders so much. I had them on my 87 4Runner. And all but 2 clips on my snake blinders on my 60 were busted so I ordered all new male and female clips.

The 60 is still completely covered with grinding dust. Going to wash it after the bumper is on.

Oh yeah my @TRAIL TAILOR bumper arrived. It’s some serious bling.

It got the rustoleum treatment and hopefully I can get the frame rivets out tomorrow to get it mounted up.

the fairlead is so freaking nice. It is a flush mount into the bumper. Kinda a shame that a little Warn M8-s is going to be behind it but whatever.

That is a sweet bumper.

Does it have any up/down adjustability like the later ARB does? It looks like it could be moved up a bit and close up the gap to the headlights and gain a bit of approach angle.

There’s no up down adjustability, but there is some front and back adjustability. The holes are about 1 inch or so long so you can tuck the winch in pretty close

I have one of those Warren Wenches and it’s plenty stout.

you’ve used the warren 8,000 on a 60? I was worried it would be underpowered. Most people use the 9.5 or 8274 from what I was seeing. I got the 8000 with synthetic rope for a price I couldn’t turn down from a jeeple here in town

I agree with Nolen. Unless you sink the 60 in mud up to its floor pan, 8K will be fine. Once you eliminate any air gap between the bottom of the rig and the mud, you might as well call for help.

Yes. It’s fine. Just stay out of them Wolf River

that makes me feel a ton better. The guy I bought the 8k from replaced it with an 8274 on his TJ. So basically no mud boggin in the swamps here in Memphis


If 8k worries you, carry a snatch block. 8k becomes 16k with this small magical device.

That was my emergency plan so far. Figured the double line pull is a little more work but should work anywhere I’m doing single line

Met up with a pretty cool guy from Chicago today. He works for an airline and just flew in for free and I met him at the departures lane of the airport. He picked up my front bumper and tow hook and hardware that i put in a box, and he turned around and flew right back. What a great way to get around paying for shipping!

Any of you guys using the Quadratec center console in the 60? Im looking at those and the tuffy boxes. The quadratec looks a little more comfortable and it looks like its got a spot where you can add switches to the front if i ever get seat heaters from cameron
