Now looking at a winch. The tilt I used had one mounted like yours.
I got mine from Best Trailers & Supply in Macon Georgia.
Mine is the 20 foot heavy duty, I had them do everything winch, spare tire carrier, matching spare, e track by Mack's tie downs, and the best option power tilt.

Sorry to hijack thread and talk about trailers.

Very nice and YES, you nailed it with everything. The one I used in July didn't have electric tilt so wouldn't touch the ground due to the winch weight unless you stood on it. How do you mount E-Track steel to aluminum? I'll be ordering a set of Macs next week but was going to use the regular tie downs and I've already got ZL1 addons mounted to the car for tie downs.

Just looked over Best again and it's exactly the same distance as BG from me but didn't have the Anniversary Edition. I really like those bed lights and storage box up front.

This is the actual one.

Nice,
Yea I had to have them order mine as they do not stock they anniversary models. I ordered mine March 16th my birthday and picked it up on June 16th.
The lights really make loading at night easier and the look is really cool.
I ordered mine with the e tracks they are aluminum and are welded on at the factory.
When I ordered my straps from Phil at macs he told me to look at the tracks for there name as they supply aluma with the e tracks.
Any other questions please feel free to ask.
John

Never thought they would do this at the factory and looked all over and couldn't find Aluminum E-track... only A-track. MACs is awesome too!!

After LS Fest is over and we are done bumping this thread I may move the trailer posts to one of those threads so others can benefit from posts like this too.

Yea you dont know till you ask. I had the insight to ask as this is my 5th and hopefully last trailer. The wife said get exactly what you want as she didnt want to go through this again lol. I will not buy anything but macs stuff they are pricey but best by far and customer service is second to none.

Yes sir it will be nice to put this information in a trailer thread so everyone can see for sure.

I had a wedding to go to today so I missed LS Fest also and I'm only an hour and a half away. There is always next year. I will be at camaro fest and ls fest 2020 for sure no matter what even if I have to walk lol.

If I had known you could order the Macs aluminum e-track from the factory I think I would have gone that way. Trailer places don't like to weld this stuff since every little spark that hits the aluminum leaves black spots.

I'm still trying to figure out how the winch mounting will go.

See you at CFest next year again for sure.

That's a really nice, simple setup.

I've never been a fan of stone guards because it blocks your view of the trailer rear. But your see though one will be perfect.

Drive it on. Seems a lot safer to me. Unless the car dies. Then you get 10 guys and push it up. Been there !

I use a Warn VRX 45-S (4,500lb) in an aluminum box mounted in the floor. Pulls the ZLE up fine.

Can't really drive it up on my trailer that easily. I switched to an enclosed that doesn't have an escape door...
