    Fark that's cheap. Wouldn't trust it on a 4wd but would be perfect for a trailer.

    Still don't know what to do about getting a dead rolla onto it. Don't want an electric winch as it apparently triggers the hwy patrol. Might make a trailer hitch to drop on a hand operated boat winch

    Stick it in a tool box. Small slot for the cable to go through.

    From most reports the dominator winches are good things

    Why?
    Suspicion of being an un-authoruised tow truck?

    Its not a crime to own a tilt tray with a winch to tow your own cars, if you cave because you might get asked some questions then you let them win; Would you not own a car trailer with a winch>?
    If your rolling around with a car you own on the back they cant do squat, if your rolling around with a just a winch they cant do squat and if its your mates car then it aint going to be hard to prove its not commercial.

    Tow ball on the tray and a winch with a trailer hitch bolted to it. Drop winch on ball, use then take off and hide.

    Surely a privately rego’d truck used for race car transport can’t be touched by hwp if you’re not breaking any laws or moonlighting as a towie. Unless you look like a Swede?

    In all seriousness, put a “not for hire” sticker on the back of the tray.

    Next door neighbour has an electric winch on his banana back F truck, never been pulled over on the way to multiple racetracks (Commodore Cup and IPRA).

    Just bolt the winch under the tray up front with a small lid to pop up to run the cable through, might work?

    I think the winch will need to be in the middle with a couple of pulleys at the front. It'll be a bit tight up there

    Put a 2" hitch receiver on the headboard and use a hitch mount winch plate, remove when not needed.

    Headboard? The front bumper will be about 3 inches off the cab

    That will work, I've seen guys who mount the winch so they can run the cable out the front or rear.

    Willall in Adelaide has a truck like this which carrys the R35, he's driven it all over Aus year after year with no issues, I don't see what the concern is. It's painted plain white with no branding on it.

    I reckon it's got around 300kg to spare. I'll add some tool/e85 storage on the other side once I confirm weights

    I know you don't want to waste money on vanity number plates for it, but if you were going to get them I'd be going for SLUF. Short Little Ugly Fucker.

    Quick question, is there enough length under the cab for an LS to be completely under it? I've seen a couple of these things with V8s and they're usually got the last 2 cylinders behind the cab.

    Tray would need to be cut for Ls, which isn't going to happen anyway

    This is obviously assuming all your AUX outputs are doing something. Ie idle control, and the other does water spray, and the other updates your Instagram automatically etc.

    You are going to add a front to that tray yeah? getting squashed from two sides in an accident would suck twice as much!
