Just changed up the suspension in the singer sewing machine. Pulled out the spring spacers and put in an AE" full suspension lift. Better travel, better ride.20190814_145118 (1).jpg20190814_145049 (4).jpg New brakes, exhaust, fuel tank, springs, struts and shocks, new track bars, 3rd member and diff drop brackets. new lights wired in, back up lights, etc. Got to love the retired life.

That's one of those fancy new bluetooth spare tires?

I've got a couple options, an '85 bw200:


Or this one, a 92 4runner, that I built bumpers and sliders for, and put a hot rod warn 8274 in, and a solid steel front skid plate, and upgraded rad, cut off the rotten rear suspension and put in heavier leafs to carry all my camping gear comfortably, a rear locker, and a few other doodads and thingies to make it more comfortable. Still an underpowered 4cylinder slushbox with over 500,000km on it though.

That spare on the back isn't going to do you much good.

Upgraded motor and contactor instead of solenoids. I got the motor from a local electrical shop, stock is I believe 2hp, I run a 4.5, there is also a....maybe 8hp motor available. Whatever the highest one is, it is stupid fast, but after you let off the trigger it still sucks in another 5 or 6 feet of line...even with a 6500lb rig hanging from it.
The contactor was from Canadawinch.com. Eliminates the solenoid pack, and is a smaller package, easier to remote mount. Mine is on the inner fender, and the plug for the controller is in the grill.
