One ton rear shaft
D60 Front with 4.88 and ARB

Everything was custom and Nick at Extreme did a great job make my Bronco in my head reality! Thanks!

Nick @ Extreme Eng. put in countless hours making sure I got exactly what I wanted! His fab skills are second to none, as you can see! My painting skill on the other hand, well.............still needs some work! enjoy! cuz, I'm gonna!!

Looks great! Only one question, are those tabs in the front for the winch? It looks like they are in a later picture. Is that going to work if you're trying to pull all that weight? I'm sure they've done it before, but I'm just wondering, because if that works, people can easily save 20 lbs. w/o a winch plate in there.

The winch on the front is a suck winch to pull the front down.......I is no engineer and wouldn't say yes if I was, but for me this will work perfect.....

if you look at it with the body on it, at no point will it be pulling straight forward it has to loop under a bar and come out the bottom to pull forward so even if it was to come lose (which it won't) it would have to blow thru the front frame which will never happen.

I hope this side stepped your question completely.........:cool:

How does the "Oh shit handle" that sits in front of the passenger mount? Seems there is a sleeve in the dash which the bar slides into.

Is it permanently mounted, or is there some sort of quick release on it?
