This was the other winch I was looking at with a synthetic rope. Ultimately I felt more comfortable with Smittybilt because of reviews and familiarity- but honestly it looks like a great option as well and was my other top pick.! Thanks!You may want to check this link out:
I was just going to post the harbor freight sale. You beat me to itWinch is going on hopefully this morning so will post pics! Still determining if I will swap for a synthetic rope (harbor freight just sent a 10% off everything of course so I’m going to see what that would look like for a rope and hawse fairlead). Thanks everyone!
Make sure you have a fuse on the hot side near the battery. I wouldn't worry too much about 1 loop on the ground side. Too many loops will create an antenna which could screw with your electronics under heavy load.Installed my comeup winch with synthetic rope last weekend. Very satisfied with quality and look. Fit perfect with the ARB stubby.
I don’t want to highjack the thread but can you guys confirm if the wiring is good? I read somewhere that the cables should be as straight as possible and there shouldn’t be a loop like I have on my negative terminal. Thanks for the help!
While we're talking winches I actually got a good piece if advice from a salesman at a dealership. If you opted for the aux switch package, you can use one button for winch in and one for winch out. Unless, of course, you're adding ridiculous amounts of lights, then you'll need those buttons.
curious about wiring to the battery, that’s the step we stopped on. Which wire goes where?! The video we were watching provided zero help!Make sure you have a fuse on the hot side near the battery.
