I asked my mechanic to make up and fit a bracket so that I could fit a winch in the load area of my Navara in order to pull up the occasional Red.
I wanted to use the bolt holes used by the existing C channel and didn't want any other holes made. Plus I wanted the bracket to use the floor in some way as added insurance against any twisting.
Below photos show end result which looks great to me and it isn't going to move.
He bolted it to the floor utilising the C channel on the floor.
I've attached a winch which is rated at 3,500lb - will this be man enough for the job?
The mechanic is a tad worried that the stays holding the tailgate might snap when I winch a deer up using a ramp - any views please?
