If your in Perth go to somewhere like Rudds in Kewdale Rd. If that's not convenient, there are heaps of other industrial fastener outlets around. Use proper certified quality bolts. And yes, 8.8 is close to gr5. Just imperial and metric classifications.

Cheers all, I'll get some 8.8 bolts.

I'm Perth SoR, so Kewdale is easy.

Why are you needing to add the spacer for the fairlead?

Same issue as Jimmy, the ARB bars are designed for roller fairleads, which are held in place by 4 bolts that go straight through the bar to the holes that hold the winch to the bar. The hawse fairleads have 2 bolts that sit in the middle that would hit the winch if you drilled new holes in the bar.

The alternative would be to fab up a bracket as Jimmy did, which IMO looks much cleaner.

Grade 5 is for SAE and 8.8 is for metric. Same thing. Grade 5 bolts are fine. No need to spend money unnecessarily.

Possible way to fix the problem with the hawse bolts hitting the winch is to drill and countersink the 2 holes for the hawse from the inside of the bar and use countersunk allen head bolts and fit your hawse before the winch, in my case i have 10 mm thick steel that i had tapped to fit my hawse.

The adapter you have used does look neat though, although as you say welding the studs in sits everything back a tad cleaner.

Hey all, I have the same bar as Dissociative, (ARB) and I'm also going to pick up one of these winches. I just have a couple of questions, hoping people from this thread can assist, even though it goes back a little while.

1) Do I have to take the bar off to mount the winch? (probably yes)
2) If I use the standard roller style fairlead, will this just slot in? I don't want to drill any holes in the bar if I can avoid it and I don't have a problem with the way the roller fairleads look.
3) Is the cabling/wiring incredibly complicated? How would you rate on a scale of 1-10, 10 being "do NOT try this at home".
