    Winch Mount

    I fabbed a winch mount for my daughters race car trailer . Made out of stuff I had laying around the shop . I also helped her install bed tie down rings using my plunge router to route out the pockets . Tore up my yard dragging the trailer around with the tractor . We are still saturated from last weeks storms .

    Ron, are those tie downs bolted through the framing members too? If they are just in the floorboards then they are not safe to use for a car-the floorboards are probably just screwed down with Tek screws.

    Romjca- i used these type tie downs in my first trailer i had, just a small trailer. but i used a flat piece of aluminium and used the cross member., as the pulling against. at least it was better than just the wood. but now i never would of used a chain and binder to tighten down some 5 thousand pound cargo. a normal fella would have that sense-i hope. they worked great as long as u kept the dirt out of them, and sprayed them regularly.

    Judging by the fact that there are no screws in the boards next to the board with recessed d ring, I doubt it is bolted to a frame member. Otherwise we would see a line of screws in the wood, holding the wood to the frame of the trailer.

    Many people don't realize strapping down your cargo is important to not only keep it from shifting around, but also to keep it on the trailer in case of an accident. Don't want anything coming off and causing additional damage. Most strapping/securing cargo I see is fine for cruising down the road but in an emergency situation with heavy breaking involved, or sudden stopping, most cargo would come flying off. You are responsible for anything flying off your trailer.

    Romjca please be careful and mindful of forces that may occur. Of course there is certain amount of force that no matter what your load is strapped to, it could come loose. Not saying your half a$$ing it. Just want others that may see this to know that a recessed d ring should be secured to a frame member some how.(not shown in pics)

    Nice winch mount btw!

    These are not attached to the frame , only a piece of plate on the bottom side . She has already purchased weld on d rings for install at later date . She was in a hurry to finish as car is going to chassis shop next week for roll cage upgrade .

    Whoops...Whoops!

    But seriously take a good look at that, especially if you tow a tractor or other heavy items. The WLL (working load limit) on most of them is only 1000 or 2000 pounds, so that's to small for most tractors anyway if you factor in shock loads and g-forces in a panic/emergency stop.
