And on the cooler, here's how I plan to manage it. The thing will pretty much stay put where it is located. I will place another smaller cooler next to it, another roto-molded thing that will hold drinks so that we are not going into/out of the big guy very often

So I attached a section of hose to the drain and a simple valve to the other end. I'll just drain water every once in awhile and top over with more ice as necessary

Had to sand down and repaint these three wheels once again. I got too much trash in the paint last time I sprayed. Need to mount the tires, so it's go time

Then on to front bumper work

First up, I pulled it and welded in the top mounts

Next I made a reinforcing plate for the bumper wings. Basically I am making more of a "C" channel out of the setup Brian came up with.

After cutting out a section of 10 gage, I shaped it like a quorkie Gurka knife, then fitted and welded it in to the bottom of each wing

Next I loosely installed the winch to the mounting plate Brian had made up and slid that onto the four studs welded to the bumper.

Looking at it I removed the allen head screws on the clutch handle end and rotated it 90 degrees, then tightened that down.

We picked it up and tried to mount it to the truck, but it won't fit

The winch or the radiator core support, that's my choices, one or the other, not both

No, I'm not very happy

After all the stuff I had to go through on the rear bumper, to find out my winch bumper cannot mount a winch is not good news.

So I guess I'll just redo things myself again. This time, I'll just send the da__ed thing in and have it coated and get it bolted up to the frame. Then I guess I'll take some of the time I was saving by not having to build the bumpers myself and fabricate up some sort of a cradle to hang the winch in the space just below the radiator and create some way of guiding the rope through the hole so that it doesn't get destroyed, or maybe I'll just go buy the ARB bumper I was going to buy in the beginning.

That sucks about the winch.

Any update on the third member?

What’s on the punch list to finish?

I'll be able to sort the winch. I'll just create a cradle for it, like Dodge does on that rock crawlin truck of theirs

No word on the axle. At the shop, in queue... Had one or two ahead of me

Punch: Get axle and build up with new parts
Install
Measure for driveshaft (hoping to get lucky)
Paint and install all the new rear suspension stuff
Run rear brake lines, bleed system
Mount remaining tires on wheels
Install wheels
Install F bumper when it is Line-X complete...Thursday???
Install aux battery
Run bat cables, switch, connect both
Build winch cradle/wire in winch
Drop roof top tent on, bolt down
Install new 2-din receiver/better speakers
Drive it, align the front end, drive some more
Pull recording for BlackBear/re-tune and install
Fix whatever i found goobered up
Install some more lighting
Load with kids and hit the road!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Why can’t you have the winch sit up like normal? Is it a air block issue? Trying to keep it hidden to maintain a low profile?

Cut the top of that bumper open a little wider and mount it in

Shrinkage issue during the build caused the up top winch spot to be too small, so he cut and modified and moved, hoping it would all fit. Check out post 15 in the suburban bumper build thread. Was an unaccounted for whoops.

Or atleast that’s how I understood it

It's a depth issue. The bumper does not allow enough space to place anything behind it and still clear the radiator support

I'm not worried about it.

Its small potatoes, I'll figure it out.

I'm much more concerned about Andrew, the man who contacted me who is dying of cancer. He is the guy in the faith section I posted a thread on. He is in a bad way...

I feel really wrong thinking I have any problems worthy of note in view of his titanic suffering...

This winch has all that built in. Its a nice design

I have only two choices. Get another bumper,
or
Build a cradle beneath the back of the bumper and make it work

I think door number two is the right approach. I think the bumper is well built, fits well for a non-winch bumper and is here. I'll use it and make the winch work, that's the decision.

No actual work on the Burb today, but I did get the front bumper dropped off to have sprayed and dropped off the rest of the tires/wheels to be mounted.

Today, my favorite lawn care hobby (Not) spreading mulch. 20 yards of the stuff plus 10 bags of pine bark nuggets around some of the conifers.

The Curt hitch came in along with the new mount for the cable plug.

Moving right along!

Looking at a 270 degree awning thing, really cool!

If that control box was remote would that solve the issue? A new winch might be simpler answer.

Curt is a Class IV with square tubing. Chevy part in background. Curt hitch weighs more for sure

Also Curt hitch is more compact. Notice how far Chevy places the hitch receptacle below the center mount

The Chevy hardware was of a larger diameter and was still in great condition, so I elected to reuse it, but also added two of the curt grade 8 bolts to the front points

Notice how tightly it tucks up to the bumper. That is a ground clearance/departure angle improvement that I had not bargained for.

Knowing I'll be "Scrapin' tail" probably at Moab, I mounted the receptacle to the rear face where it could face downward for protection

I drilled holes, then used two 1/4" nutserts to complete the installation

Next up, I modified the license plate light to connect it to the LED's Brian supplied

I just taped one of the bulb sockets, minus the bulb to the main harness to limit the impact of the modification as much as I could. Then I zipped and taped the harnesses up and out of harms way

The hitch fit so tightly to the bumper that tightening the center bolts pinched and slid some of the Line-X coating uphill:

Next up. I pulled the newly created crossmember for the sway bar and welded that all up, then went on and welded up the panhard bar frame mount. I triangulated and gusseted the living heck out of the thing. Unnecessary, but I don't want problems years from now

So, except for mounting the vehicle tag, the rear bumper business is now complete.

The front bumper is sprayed and will pick up tomorrow and maybe get that thing installed as well.

I also Line-X'd the grill too! Not sure what that will look like, but it won't be shiny chrome anymore. I plan to remove everything that shines except for the pretty paint. Think I'll leave that just as it is!

Oh, also had the tires all mounted, so before the clock chimes midnight Sunday, I want the truck resting on its front suspension, with bumper installed. Winch cradle will come next week...

I know you had issues, but from the rear, that bumper looks uptight and out of sight. (Looks great)

Ken is right. Did I just say that. The bumper looks good for sure.
Like the hitch.

You’re gonna love the grill all line x’d up.
Seen a few and like them.
I just don't want to wind up missing a digit or limb.  I can sometimes get in a hurry to get results.

Yep, looks good. Surprised you didn't do the combo plug for the hitch though.

Surprised hitch wasn’t designed / built into rear bumper.

It’s for the folks in the inner city who like to follow to close.  Makes the sudden stop less on your vehicle
