    Adding Winch To Trailer

    Small list of parts and an evening at home.
    Winch
    Battery quick connects
    Battery cables
    Battery
    Battery tray
    Battery tie downs
    4" hitch for reciever on back of trailer
    3/4 tab with 1/2 hole
    Shackle
    Some 1/4 plate

    Ok, positioned winch on trailer in desired location, drilled holes through deck boards, removed deck boards, welded plate below deck boards and drilled holes to mount winch in position.

    Next up put battery tray into tool box on trailer and secured.

    Then turn reciever upside down, weld tab to top of reciever.

    This setup will alow me to pull a dead vehicle onto the trailer.
    Then insert the modified reciever with the tab and shackle, put my snatch block to shackle and pull vehicle off trailer.

    and there you have it.
    Will be adding a solar charger to outside of tool box to charge battery when not in use.

    Cheers,
    Vince
