  5. Radio no sound

    Just had the same problem. But am and fixed it. Crazy thing I found is when I hit the Mute Button a then unmute sometime the rear camera comes on. I can repeat it multiple times. try muting and unmuting. Sometime I have to mute for 2 or 3 seconds and then unmute. Edit: I have a Taser and it’s...

  7. Which winch for JL Wrangler

    Yeah it looks like a great Winch. I was actually going to buy it but the switch on it hits the bumper and would have to be cut down a little.
  8. XRC Gen 3 Fairlead Warn Filler Plate

    Thanks buddy!!! I just spooled the line under a pretty good load and it didn’t shift. If it were to shift; it’s possible that the line would be running across the winch and bumper opening and it’s a 90° angle, not sharp but I wouldn’t want it rubbing on it under a heavy load. Will have to try a...
  9. Which winch for JL Wrangler

    I got the 9.5k after researching and listening to the guys in the know on here. I went with the Warn Winch Plate that Mopar uses. If you need the item number I can look it up for you. Everything is pretty straight forward. I did have to elongate the two rear holes on the skid plate that a lot...
  10. Smittybilt Gen2 X20 Comp 12K with Factory Steel Bumper?

    Hey guys, just installed the XRC Gen 3. Any of you guys notice that the Fairlead and filler plate moved a lot? Once it’s tight it doesn’t move but I’m thinking if you are recovering a vehicle on a slope, the downward force is going to push the Fairlead down and then the rope is going to be...

  12. Do you really have to do this with a winch?

    Thanks!! Was just wondering if there was something different about the gearing when winching out.
  13. Do you really have to do this with a winch?

    Just installed the SmittyBuilt XRC Gen 3. In the instructions it says if you need to power out the Winch you have to do it 2 feet at a time and let it rest for 5 minutes in between bumps to break it in. Really? I know under load you need to let the motor rest if it gets hot. Is there something...
  14. XRC GEN 3 Winch Drum Still moves from Controller in Free Spool Mode?

    Ok I guess this was a dumb question but I’m new to winches. Anyway just talked to SmittyBuilt and they said it’s normal.
  15. XRC Gen 3 Fairlead Warn Filler Plate

    I just realized that in the instructions it shows holes in the Filler Plate that aren’t on my filler plate?
  16. XRC Gen 3 Fairlead Warn Filler Plate

    I just installed the XRC Gen 3 and used the Warn Winch Plate that’s used by Mopar. The SmittyBuilt Fairlead and Warn Filler Plate have a lot of play up and down until you tighten the bolts down due to the larger holes in the Winch Plate. The concern I have is if the winch is recovering a...
  17. XRC GEN 3 Winch Drum Still moves from Controller in Free Spool Mode?

    Hey Guys, just installed the new XRC Gen 3 and I noticed that the drum still moves when in Free Spool Mode using the controller. I thought that the gears get disengaged when in free spool mode? Thank you!
