  • hawse fairlead...upside down????

    Can I use this this upside down

    The reason I ask is that my bull bar has a curve in the lower part of my bar where the hawse needs to sit flat to bolt on, I have this type.

    I would say it all comes down to the mounting holes for the fairlead and height of the winch in the bar. A photo of the bar may help?

      As long as you have full support for the back of the fairlead go for it.

        Thanks guys I had my nephew over and worked through it I hope.
        It will be supported by 2 brackets that will be welded to the winch mount plate (got that idea from Gus's thread).
        It was just the angle that was looking bad, we mounted the fairlead but when I cut the center hole out for the rope I will gently persuade the alloy flat and with the 8mm thick flat bar behind it should be flatter.
        Any way this is what it looks like.
