failed, I soldered the connection. The moment it got power I saw it spark and it doesn't work anymore. Going to rip it apart tomorrow I guess...while I was working in the parking lot 2 ass hats blatantly drove over my brand new synthetic winch cable. rather ticked off, it's bright orange and pretty apparent I was doing something there. hate people >
on a side note, I have a million other things I need to do this week. If I never get around to dealing with the winch do they sell warn winches without cable?? just so I can save money since I've already purchased my synthetic rope?
