So i installed a Tuff Stuff 12.5k winch in my allpro. I just wanted to post the pictures of the progress and type a little about my experience.
Take the bumper off, if you didnt install it yourself its 6 nuts on the front and 2 bolts underneath.
Here is the winch itself.
There are 4 bolts that hold the winch on. The holes were lined up perfect from allpro. I think we had to drill out the ones for the Roller just a little bit.
Here is the winch installed without any of the wiring hooked up yet.
The only real problem we ran into was the box for the controls goes on top of the winch and as you can see there isnt much room at all on top of it. So i found the spot with the most room and started cutting wires.
This is where we took the connector for the controls and extended it with about 6 feet of wire so we could mount it anywhere on the bumper we really wanted to.
I decided to put the connector here so, drilled out the hole and got ready to run the wires over to it.
Reconnected the wires, and mounted the connector.
Where i ended up installing the controller connector. That way if i need to use the winch i dont have to go around front and get into the mud or anything to bad, its just right there by the driver side door.
Vwalla All installed and working.
The installing the winch part was really easy, but putting it back on the truck was a 2 person job. After the winch it weighs a metric shit-ton.
I was pretty sceptical about buying the winch because its not very expensive at all for what you get. I didnt think it would last very long, but my buddy has had his for a 2 years on his dodge. We were at the beach one day pulling people out left and right and that thing never gave up or slipped. I got lucky and got to pull someone out of the ditch when it was raining a few days ago. Extremely happy with it, if you have been wondering about this winch or how i did anything let me know id be glad to help.
