Yeah, thanks. I'll probably put a cover on it to keep it dry as I think water is the number one thing that causes these cheap winches to fail. I didn't find a whole lot of negative reviews on them, so we'll see how it holds up.You got that for $254? nice, hope it works, because that’s a steal.
I put my warn under water a few times, and neglect it only to hope it works when I need it. It’s never let me down yet.Yeah, thanks.

My buddy has the 12000lb version and seems to like it with one complaint. The switch in the controller gets hot and self destructs after a few uses replace it with a better rocker or you be holding two wires together on the trail. Build looks awesomeI started trying to fit the front Bumper, but I decided it will need some customizing to make me happy. One of them is raising it. As in the MC Thread I redrilled the main bolt holes an 1" lower. I also plan to raise the upper section as well.
As it sits, there is almost 2 3/4" from the grill with the 1" Body Lift.
Redrilled an 1" lower.
I also had a super coupon, so I picked up a $254 Winch. If it claps out I'll rethink my decision. Like always there were 5 different part numbers for the same thing. I hope I picked the right one.
It looks pretty decent I read a few threads about pulling it apart and re greasing and trying to waterproof it.
Yeah, even this one, which is pretty basic, was pretty expensive. I think shipping alone was $100.I like the DIY bumper concept and wish he made one for a 3rd gen 4runner. Granted the price IMO is too steep over some fully built bumpers out there
Do it! Yes it's expensive, but TC makes some badass shit, and you won't have to replace it ever againI’ll check it out tomorrow. I see that it has one of those crappy single sheer aftermarket idlers. I don’t feel anything in the steering wheel, so I figured it wasn’t steering related.
I don’t think this front end has seen any love in a while, so I was going to replace everything with OEM stuff. I read 4crawlers page about idler arms, so I think I’m leaning towards Total Chaos, but man it’s expensive
