That's good! The guys in the 4x4 club were telling me I was slipping last week.
There is a way to make this work...I was pleased to discover today that the GPS receiver/dongle for Streets & Trips will work with GoogleEarth's GPS function. However, it won't work with both Streets & Trips & GoogleEarth simultaneously.
The winch is operational, but I'm going to take the opportunity to rebuild it in my spare time.Warn Series-9 12V DC Electric Winch (PN: 30283) - $700

Warn Series-9 12V DC Electric Winch (PN: 30283) | $700 OBO
Start 2010 off right! This winch has never been mounted or used. I am selling it because it is too big to fit on my winch bumper. What you get: the winch, the winch remote control and at no cost to you I will throw in the pictured painting. That's right, you'll be the proud owner of the winch AND this incredible painting. You must act fast because my wife doesn't exactly know it is part of the deal. This painting would look great about your fireplace where you will see it day after day after day when you come home from work or perhaps after a day of vehicle recovery with your new Warn Series-9 12V DC Electric Winch.

Warn sells this winch on their website for $1,966.88. I have found it for as low as $1,243.99. I Google'd the winch and took the five lowest prices to determine the average price: $1,454.41
Check my math!
AVERAGE---------$7,272.07 / 5 = $1,454.41

interesting. will that fit somehow on your hanson bumper? I thought those were forward mounting? (looks like it)Below is the Craigslist add for a winch I had been trying to off-load for a a couple months. I dropped the price from $900 to $700. Yesterday a guy asked if I would be willing to trade straight across for a used Warn 8274... I bit. And here's the new winch!
The winch is operational, but I'm going to take the opportunity to rebuild it in my spare time.
Maybe try this one:I just downloaded the Xport thingy. It looks cool, but when I go to launch it, it gives me an "Error: You do not have the proper rights" message. I'm gonna Google another similar thingy.
That may very well fit the bill, thanks for finding that and saving me another google search!
Well, I already have the Smittybilt XCR10 winch on my XJ. But as fate would have it, Hanson makes their "Hanson Offroad Fairlead Mount" specifically designed for the 8274:interesting. will that fit somehow on your hanson bumper? I thought those were forward mounting? (looks like it)
Logans actually makes their own version of a 8274 winch plate. Theirs is a less expensive and looks beefier. I came across their winch plate when I was Google'n 8274 winch plates. Check 'em out!Do you think I could use that on my logans metal bumper? just a standard 4" x 10" mounting pattern?

Here's a question for you. Do you have close up pics of your awning and how it mounts to your roof rack? I've always been interested the "how" of the mounting system.
