Re: Opinions on light placement

No hood lights or roof lights EVER!!! Center lights are long distance pencil beam, outters are for pattern and aimed slightly toward the ditch. Perfect for my use. I do search and rescue with my truck.

I think VerdeSARdog has one, or one similar, on his hydraulic winch. Hopefully he jumps in to verify.

I tried the chalk test with nonsense results so I just go by the tire load chart.

Re: Cable comes off drum

Well of course! That little connection is just to get the rope started on the drum, when winching you need to keep at least 6 wraps on the drum!

Re: New rims and tires

I am going to cut the lower control arms off and install the lower thuren's to match the uppers already installed.

Rusty, what kind of blade did you use in your sawsall? Aren't those hardened bolts and sleeves? I think i can get 5" wheels for my angle grinder which should make fast work of it.

Re: WTB - winch mount for my 2006 mega

That's kind of what I thought after posting the photos. A power wagon winch mount will not work on a CDT, the intercooler takes up all the space necessary for that. I got that specific mount because I did not want to get a massive new bumper just to mount a winch!

Re: New rims and tires

Darn, you are correct,I was thinking positive caster was front lean but it is rear leaning of the suspension. I could only get 2* caster with the arms that were on the truck now it's probably close to zero :evil: Funny, I did a reference tilt measurement on the knuckle with one of those little magne...
