Re: Pre-Production Sneak Peak at Boostwerks Comp Mount

Cool. I haven't installed those brackets on mine yet because... well I am lazy and didn't want to move the steering box. So I have mine in the garage patiently waiting for when I put the new Steering box spacer in. But if you can't find yours let me know. As you know, I love my OEM skid plate and tow hooks and don't like the idea of getting rid of them. Especially since I flat tow my rig often.

I would get this in a heartbeat. Gave up searching for a hidden winch or a bumper that doesn't stick out a foot.

It's all about the sleeper winch. Not only more visually appealing, but it helps keep the COG low and more towards the center of the rig.

Re: Pre-Production Sneak Peak at Boostwerks Comp Mount

Can you hide that behind a stock bumper?

Re: Pre-Production Sneak Peak at Boostwerks Comp Mount

Really like this idea...wondering if those of use that already have invested in nice aftermarket bumpers could mount a second fairlead in said bumper? Would keep winch hidden and not waste the previous investment. How low would the fairlead sit? Mind taking a measurement for those of us pondering this.

Like this:




To be fair, there is not yet an opening in the bumper for the fairlead. I am still working on that. I will probably have to cut out the bottom third of the bumper in the center, about the width of the license plate. We will see how well the license plate hides it.

The plastic valence is necessary in order to hide the mount. It hangs lower than the bottom of the bumper. The valence will require some trimming and some different mounting holes. I have that planned out in my mind. I will post up pics as progress occurs.

Re: Pre-Production Sneak Peak at Boostwerks Comp Mount

LOL!

I think the line started over two years ago.

I am pretty sure some Colorado folks got spots ahead of me. It makes more sense to work on prototyping with local rigs than it does with someone a thousand miles away.
