This Jeep is(was?) for sale locally, thought I’d share a couple pics. I found the winch interesting. Just for curiosity sake, anyone have any info on this type of winch? And is it correct for it to be wound from the top?

Pretty common for Pto winches to run over the drum versus under.
I wish I had a better pic of this widened out Suburban on a garbage truck chassis. He explained the size of the PTO to me once. He hadn't spooled it up because he couldn't justify the money for the insane amount of 3/4" synthetic line he was going to put on it.

At about $10 a foot I bet he was having doubts. And people complain how much feed 3/8 is.

It was along the lines of "hey, you know folks, can you get me a price on 150 feet of 3/4" synthetic?" WTF are you trying to move that you need line that big? Whatever I want. What the hell has that much weight? My Suburban. No, they don't weigh that much. Mine does and then I went and looked at it. I think he said it was a 20,000 lb rated. Seems about right for the size.

Looking at one and it holds 220 feet of 9/16" steel cable. I'm not putting 1500 bucks in synthetic line on anything.
