Had and an old Warn winch drum laying around so I decided to machine it down and weld it my new winch drum. Had to cut and extend the internal drive shaft as well as build new bars for the top and bottom.

This winch mod is the best! it is so handy. I have it mounted to my rear frame and with the front winch out I have over 170 feet of useable rope!

Here is the result.

Yep.
Here is the mounted position. The relay is on a switch so you can run the winch without the key.

125 foot! That is a little insane dont ya think haha. I think your battery would give up around 80 foot or so. But all is good because your like me. There is no such thing as to much! Man i wish I had that winch on my old Polais when I went to the hatfield and mccoy trails. I had a belt go when I made it down the bottom of a black and red trail. Needless to say it was pure hell making it back up and that winch you have would of saved me alot of potty mouth
