Ian's Thing...

Post by Peter Connan » 17 Jul 2013 18:00

When Ian T bought his GQ, he asked me to make him a winch mount. By the time we were through with speccing it, it had become a winch mount, recovery points, hi-lift jack points and bash plate all in one.

It fits between the chassis legs and can work with the standard bumper, and should fit most of the large low-profile winches. I would however recommend using a rope rather than a cable, as access will be difficult.

Unfortunately by the time I had built it, Ian had bought a GU and is now selling the GQ, and the GU comes with a winch bar.

So this device is now for sale. It will fit a GQ, and may well fit GU 4.5, 4.2D and 3lD, but not the 4.8, but I am not entirely sure about that.

This is what it looks like:

It is available for R1500 or make Ian T an offer he can't refuse?

Peter,
Is there any way you would be willing to share the CAD model with me. :pray: :pray:
I have a 4.8 GRX and intend to do my bumper designs (including winch bracket).
Seen that I am actually an electronic guy and tought myself Solidworks it takes quite a long while to even get close to what you have.
It would propably save me at leasts a years worth of swearing to start from such a solid base and addapt where applicable.
Thanks man. :thumbup:
