    Ahhh, good move on the bar makers part!

    I would have loved to have fitted the 6hp to my XD9000. Some said that by putting the endcap from a 2.5 (no heat sink, plain bearing) that it may fit, but I think the parts didn't actually go together when I tried. I wasn't sure if you flipped it or something which I don't think I tried. Never the less the 6hp is on a highmount now and the ol' XD9000 still chugs on.

    a mate has an old Thomas worm gear winch. is that the same as your unit? If so its about 400:1 ratio. well engineered bit of kit. will pull the moon out of orbit but will take a light year to do it. Heavy as sin too.

    with the Runva range do your measurements. Their high HP motors are long and if the winch is centred on your bull bar can foul the chassis rail. I am in the process of offsetting the mounting holes and fairlead on my bull bar to fit the larger motor of the Runva range. Will need some cosmetic patching and welding in a plate to cover the old holes and end of fairlead hole.

    Yes thatís the one. I bought it in pieces and have rebuilt it. Itís a really well made replacements being readily available over the counter at most places. Iíd really like it to fit, in just not sure how thatís going to work. Sad face. I know nothing is actually impossible, I just donít want to spend many thousands on a solution.

    I think that this bumper might work, itís just not available in Australia as far as I can see.
