:) Great !! This winch... is it underneath in the middle, so you can choose in the front or back to the rear?

Probably - as that was where LR put the factory mounted winches on all FCs - not just the 101" ;)

now theres no point in telling her she just lets me get on with it,,,,,,

 

well just an up date, :blink: ,,been very busy,,the chassis is completely stripped down and i have started to clean it and stip all the black army bitumin off,,but it seems to be doing a good job so i think im going to leave it on and just paint over it, :rolleyes: ,,i have only found 2 bits of rust on it,,,the rear cross member where they all go and one of the nokken pullys where it meets the chassis had rusted badly so i have cut it out and plated it,,,hopefully i will post some more pics this week,, B)B)B) ,,tug,,,,
