So your Rockwood 8288 SS DID NOT come with a factory Sidewinder?

I am the 2nd owner. The original owner stated that the Sidewinder was purchased and added. The original pin-box which I was also provided is what is shown in my previous post.

NMWILDCAT, you are correct, the sidewinder pin box is only 10" wide framed in. Without someone coming up with some bushings on the sides it will not fit most standard pin boxes. For the comment for Bob Caldwell he lives very close to me but shipping to WA. would cost you over 200.00 dollars not pesos. Has to be shipped by truck on a pallet.... PS: Bob if you want it I could pick it up and drop it off at a shipping Company for you, just sent your credit card. OCE probably still has those spacers he made for you. MAYBE...

Well Dang. I was looking for my buddy who has a Leland 7920 pin box. The width and the bolt holes won't match the Lippert 1621.

So he would have to buy a new turret (top part) for the sidewinder with the correct mount for his rig. Thanks for the info!
