Gary sent me these pictures of his new chute mount and asked me to post them a few weeks ago and I forgot, sorry Gary.  Here they are now. 

I'll let him comment on them,

Not knowing how strait it will pull I would think about a rubber pad above the tow line loop to protect it from chaffing on the sheet metal. Just a thought. :-D

Glen, this looks better than what you saw at World Finals, forged clevis. Do you agree?

That's for sure, looks strong and the spool is large enough to protect the loop. Good job. :-D
