Added a small HF hoist to my new-to-me pickup.

Added a boat winch to the top, and a snatch block to the end, like the bigger HF hoist has.

Bracing I added to the angles it came with. Rear is on the left, it angles down to a hitch mount on the frame.

Like so.

The forward brace goes straight across, with one welded on chunk of angle to drop to a large hole next to the spring mount.

The far end is about amidships, and bolts to the crossmember and the spare tire hoist mounting plate. Stopped just short of the access tube for lowering the spare. While I have that out I am brushing off the rust and repainting it.

Also got two quad outlets installed over my garage workbench, now I have plenty for chargers and such.

Thought the pump I put on died but it was just the ground wire pulled off! Anyway the loader developed a massive fuel leak and ended up being the suction hose from the tank to the pump.
That was fun to replace since its way down in the deep dark canyons and you can only work with 1 hand in there due to no room to even see what you are doing!

My Mini-Hoe very rarely comes off an Idle. I keep it bumped up just enough for the governor to do it's job.
