The way a stock Ural is built I just could never see how this could be done, on my rig it proved to be possible.
Sounds kinda like this Ralph Gerkins blooper a few years ago. Good place for the tree in this case

The only thing diferent I looking into was putting mounts on the front & rear so I only needed one winch that could br hooked up when needed..Nothern tool sells ATV winches so I haven't ruled that out yet...

As to education, K-12, two year VoTech, many years as an apprentice in the metal trades before becoming a Journeyman Machinist and Certified welder, in an effort to keep me employed the VA sent me to collage where I received a Degree in Manufacturing Technology two weeks before their decision to take me out of the work force.

I know what I am doing, just can't function in a normal work setting any more, my memory is completely shot, I can be doing something that I have done for years and my mind will go completely blank and its like I have no idea of what the heck is going on. I can't concentrate, I don't deal well with others so being gainfully employed is something I haven't been able to do for years. I can work at my own pace, walk away when I need to, but its getting harder all the time.
Thank you for your candor, I know of what you speak.

Howdy Melrone,

I am only using ONE winch, I explained all this in the build thread that I posted on Soviet Steeds, the winch can be switched from front to rear and used as needed, its normal carry position will be in the rear where it is protected and its weigh will contribute to traction.

Howdy YOUNZ,

No problem, I am known as a straight shooter and plain talker.

Yes, that is what we have done too. Using a receiver type hookup works very well. I did see one mounted in the rear once and there was a pully to reverse the direction if needed. Didn't really make sense to me as the angle of pull would have had to have been just right. Darn posers....lol.

A little off topic but "Maasdam Pow'R Pull A-20 3/4 Ton Capacity Rope Puller with 20' of 1/2" dia. Rope" is on sale at Amazon so I ordered one to try out. I have several cable comealongs but always wanted to try the rope type.

Not to continue the derailment, but 20' of rope seems a little short.

The obvious solutions are always the best.

Sweet!!

I just looked through your build, GREAT WORK!

You're gonna get into so much shit now! Have a ball! Great idea putting a winch on a Ural, it's a wonder they don't offer one.

I really need to start welding again, I always enjoyed just making whatever. Some of you guys on here are inspirational, whether you know it or not.

Howdy slowpoke69,

I am now in the process of "interviewing" folks to do a complete rewire job on the Predator, when I get the wiring done I plan to take the rig out and take some videos of using the winch, when I get them made I'll post them up.
