I'd purchased it from Lippert Components just after getting my trailer, but got busy with other projects.. I finally got around to installing it about four years ago, I had to weld in a couple of short pieces of angle iron to make a suitable mounting bracket.. The winch is operated by a piece of 1/2" steel tubing that I welded a 1/2" bolt with a 3/4" head in one end of, this allows me to use the same ratcheting wrench that I use on my BAL leveler.. The end of the tube is just forward of the rear bumper and can be easily reached from above or below the bumper.. There are also a pair of 1" square tube "snubbers" for the tire to be snugged up against..
