View Full Version : Fairlead for cable winch

05-24-2009, 11:34 PM
I don't have a mounting point on my new bumper for a license plate. I was going to go ahead and make one that clips to the fairlead using the maglight flashlight clips. Only problem is I don't have a winch, nor do I have a fairlead. I was wonding if anyone had one they don't need and would be interested in selling cheap.

I say cheap, because I don't have much money, and I'll get a new one when I buy my winch, but with this economy who knows when that will be.

I guess I need to give a size? Measurement between the mounting holes or something?

Well don't do what I did and mount your tag on the roof rack. DPS stopped me and said I had to move it to the front bumper. So I sanwiched mine between the bumper and the roller fairlead.

Spanky do you have a solution to rusting on the rollers. My roller fairlead's rollers have some cable scratching and are starting to rust a little. They still roll just fine but the surface is a little rusty.
