  1. I am using this flip up license plate holder https://www.amazon.ca/dp/B01N4AKOEB/ref=cm_sw_em_r_mt_dp_KWZFX7FY8JVGWXVHZXCR?_encoding=UTF8&psc=1
  2. Didn’t like having to rely on a wireless winch controller. So had some time and extra beer and relocated the handheld control connector for my winch. Also had a helper today
  3. I haven’t even found the cord for my block heater yet
  4. Washed the salt off of it as well as cleaned the dash, cleaned the salt off the inside of the foot wells. Just looking forward to the spring so I can do a deep cleaning
  5. Not sure how to post videos? Do I need to upload them to YouTube? Tried to upload one in the post but the video dose t work
  6. Upgraded the lights on my Magnum Headache rack. Now they are all signal, stop, reverse, marker and also have an amber strobe function to them. Just need to synchronize them and I will be all set
  7. How are those step rails mounted. To the body or the frame of the truck? what company are they?
  8. I have a Bubba rope as well as a yellow snatch strap in my truck. As well as a couple soft shackles i avoid chains cause when they break they tend to go flying around. I’ve seen pieces of chain fly through windshields and tailgates.
  9. Once spring hits and it gets warmer I will most likely tear into this again and figure out a way to enable the clutch lever. But for right now it still works. Also goi g to be finding a new battery for the remote ( just in case)
  10. Your right. The one I have does come with a wireless remote. But some winches do not. As for the clutch lever I need to take a better look and see if I can fabricate something up
  11. The only down side to this is that I. Ant access the spool clutch to be able to free spool the line out unless I have the grill removed. And I would also recommend having a wireless controler set up as well
  12. I picked this winch specifically due to the synthetic line. The pros of synthetic is that it’s lighter and a bit safer if it snaps. In Canada the Costco sells this specific winch. So picked it up for $600 but it does come with steel cable
  13. Here is the link to the Rough Country website for the winch plate https://www.roughcountry.com/gm-hidden-winch-mounting-plate-11004.html?find=2017-chevy-silverado-1500-4wd-739399 and here are the other pics I took during the installation : as you can see below. You need to cut the tab off of the frame Ron then you attach the brackets i chose to attach the winch to the plate before mounting it to the truck
