Connect to either one. I chose the RHS one because it was a shorter run for the cables.
That is one mighty fine looking truck! What do you store in the net across the hood? I've been trying to figure out what to do with all that real estate!
I used the search function and ended up on this thread. Like the OP it's winch buying time soon and i've no idea, I know more of wenching than winching and I discovered this thing:
I am not going to be off roading, It's for an overland rig and hopefully will never have to use it to the point I would wrap the thing in plastic shrink wrap and then mount it.
Has anyone had one, got one or have any advice ?
I dont think the the shrink wrap is a good idea, unless you were joking HW, it will rust away in no time if you do IMO.
It looks OK, but I have no idea from experience. The solenoids are the first thing to fail usually, but you'd have to use it for that to happen, so if you don't use it....
After all, it's fairly cheep insurance when you're overlanding...
I still recommend Goodwinch tds as they are waterproof but if you do go down another route. I’d run it regularly. It will keep the grease moving around to keep things lubricated and stop things seizing up. Good grease on all your electrical contacts to help keep moisture out. Keep a cover on it when it is not in use.
Cheers for the tip Roy.
I realised my bumper doesn't have a winch tray as such so I need to have one laser cut and folded up. Have just had no success at all getting some 3" tube bend for the A bar so I've gone in an entirely different direction. I'll have a "Bullbar" so I'll need a winch to remain on the right side of the law.
Hmmmm I may have a look at a good winch, I've not been skimping on quality parts but I just can't justify a fifth of the purchase price on a Warn.
Have a look at the Come-up winch you won't go wrong with one of them, good quality bit of kit, I have one on my 80 and one in the 70, I will be fitting there twin motor setup to my Patrol once it's finished
