    Black Offset Hawse Fairlead With Liner

    [​IMG][​IMG]

    Shackles til I can afford a Factor 55 Pro Link. BLACK

    [​IMG][​IMG]

    Installation was easy - simple as removing the lower 2 bolts and screwing it in. If you had installed 4 bolts in your original rollers, then they will need to be removed.

    Also, I got the one with the lip/ liner on her. Gave the surface a quick "Finger Test" to check for burrs and made sure my bolts were long enough. Mine were not, so I made a trip to Home Depot to get some longer bolts.

    The Liner version takes the guess work out of scraping on the lip of your custom plate bumper. or if you did a discrete install in your stock bumper, the Liner/ lip of the hawse is long enough to safely protect the line from any stray cuts in the bumper/ burrs.

    Black sharpie, and the writing was gone from the fairlead too.

    This is one incredible build meng! Those uca's are legit and I love the color matched ARB.

    Its all about having the right tools. I know kind of what its like to have tools stolen.. I had a snap-on rolling tool cart stolen from my storage garage when I was in between selling my house. I know the storage company took it but I couldnt prove it.
