Wow, talk about bling. I have the old fashioned prop rod. You have the cool hydaulic struts, AND now they are covered in carbon fiber. That is over the top!. I own 3 carbon fiber bikes. Huge weight savings. I have carbon parts on my motorcycle, weight savings and bling. I love CF, but you have taken it to another level.I received and installed Carbon sleeves for the @Redline Tuning, struts on my JL....... Real nice. Install took about 4 mins. on each side ....
If interested in Carbon sleeves ......Look at your Redline Tuning Struts. There are numbers on them.. Mine were marked 180.
With that number in mind, I went here and ordered the one's for QL-180.
IF in doubt which to order, be sure to reach out to @Redline Tuning before you order.
It comes with power cutoff switch in the box and super easy to install to ensure winch only has power when you want it to.Not my Jeep, but helped my bud replace his winch and rotate his tires.
He had the Badlands winch and added the rope and a wireless controller to it. Well the wireless controller failed and sometime during the night it turned the winch on and tried pulling rope in. The rope did not break as it was rated for over the 12,000 pound pull of the winch. The winch just kept pulling and pulling, tweaking the winch mounting plate a little bit and while it did not great the rope, It did damage it. The winch got hot enough that it melted the negative power cable until It broke and cut the power to the winch.
While I tried to talk him out of putting another badlands winch back on...... He had bought the free replacement warranty, so we put his new badlands winch back on. This is like the 5th one I have seen fail. I think he is lucky that it did not catch on fire and burn his Jeep down.
Only a Jeep owner. $60,000 vehicle, hand me the grinder and a can of flat black spray paint. Note: I have said this myself....
So just a quick breakdown of buying a Badlands winch.
$300 for the initial winch
$180 for the "best" warranty
$129 for the synthetic rope.
$39 for the wireless remote
$20 for the Fairlead
Then another $180 for the warranty on the free winch.
Total price for running a Badlands winch on his Jeep $848+ tax $898. But at least he has a new Badlands winch.
At least Harbor Freight is easy to deal with, they just handed him a new winch and out the store we went.
I also think he is lucky that he had a high quality Poison Spyder bumper that did not collapse in on itself. While it did bend the winch mounting place a little bit it was still usable.
Hey come on man, you don’t have to judge him/her on the choices they make for their rig.SAD DAY FOR JEEPERS
I can’t believe this is a real product. None of us Jeepers would actually do this, right? Please tell me no.
i love it and it's the cleanest set up. you do need to tap the existing hole on the roll bar but that's very simple to do.What was involved in fastening the bracket for the fire extinguisher to your roll bar? Was there any drilling required? Is this bracket worth 77.00? Please advise. Thanks.
Currently overlanding in Michigan UP. Sorry for the overly simply response. I built it similar to the Goose Gear. The lip that fits under the plate secures the side opposite the compression latches. GG used aluminum plates and mine are 1/8 manufactured fiberglass that I had on hand.Brilliant! what did you use for hinges on those doors? pics please?
