    Bijan I have the Superwinch tiger shark 9500 and it’s been a great winch so far. Before you go winching your truck off anything lemme upgrade your frame horns before they get cracked to pieces. I’ll weld some 3/16” plate to the front and upgrade those crappy little bolts that hold the bumper on with some 1/2” grade 8 bolts.

    Also, I read you needed some new bolts for your rear bumper. I have a huge bucket of bolts that might have some of those in there if you need them. Unless you already ordered them. Knowing you you probably already did lol

    Dude after a few times winching my truck hard I went to go repaint my bumper and I was like holy crap!! How is my bumper still attached???

    I welded in some reinforcements, cut those terrible little frame horn bolts off, welded in some stout 1/2” grade 8 bolts and my bumper feels like the front end of a tank now! Sooo solid

    Sorry I totally forgot to respond to your text!

    I haven’t bought anything yet. I was actually looking today on frame supports for the front as I remember you telling me to do them. I’ll send you a text tomorrow morning, kinda hoping you don’t get booked for a show for another 3 weeks so you have 2 days free :D

    You should see the gigantic stash of parts I have. I’m almost at the point where the HF Vulcan would be worth it so I can start welding. I actually was welding tonight at my buddies shop and not gonna lie, I wasn’t nearly as bad as I remember haha.

    Yeah for the price you can’t go wrong. I’ve been searching for a used prinsu and it’s impossible to find.

    Yeah thats why I gave up. And $700+ is too much for me for a roof rack...They’re cool but not at that price.

    Even used they’re ~$575-600

    I should also add I’ll gladly spend $700 on a tent but I find it hard to justify that on a Prinsu.

    Although they look so much better than whatever China crap I just bought hahaha.

    You may want to look into the Martin Rack, very VERY similar to the prinsu not sure if he’s still making them his thread was locked but here it is. Worth a shot to pm him see what the deal is, I really enjoy mine.

    Not to sure if he does or not.
    its not a prinsu but that’s the reason thread was stopped because it was to similar. It’s a quality piece for the price I just swapped out the hardware only part that was cheaped out on.

    enough to have fun
    @SoCalTacoTruck get this done! With the bumper off, I was able to bend the frame horns with a small flat head.

    Some before and after of mine:
