HELL YEA! Excellent Tazmann. Glad they sent you the upgrade!

tazmann910 you would have thought that i was reading the book "1001 dirty words".

Plus the fact it was like 95 degrees out and there was a thunderstorm coming. Oh and it was 10:30 at night.

Smeghead LOL i can just imagine that moment when you realised.
Thats the kind of crap that happens to me all the time.

tazmann910 Well according to the spec manual i got with the winch...it has.....the ......5.5 hp motor on it..WHOO HOO.

I installed it on Friday night. WORD OF WARNING: IF YOU GET THIS WINCH, HOOK UP THE GROUND WIRES TO THE WINCH BEFORE INSTALLING THE WINCH!!!!SOB/BAST*RD

Nothing like installing a winch, getting everything bolted in, and then figuring out that ground bolt you need to get to is on the frigging bottom of the winch...damn it...

tazmann910 I ordered it from 4 Wheel Parts. I just checked my order form and the part number is the same.

What company did you order it from?

How can i check the winch itself to know if it has the 5.5 motor or the 4.1 motor?

UOTE='[TheYJGuy];235325']Did you get the re-released version with the 5.5hp motor? or the original with the 4.1?

The 4.1 is a magnetic motor (miserably slow, prone to breakdown). The 5.5 is a series wound motor, which is more reliable and faster.

Apparently there were alot of complaints about the 4.1 In the XRC8, so they re-released the XRC8 with the motor from the XRC10.

If you got the 4.1 and want to return it and get the 5.5, it is part number SB97281 in 4Wheel Parts







PS. I hope I didn't ruin your Christmas in June, I'll feel bad [/QUOTE]

MOz For the most part, it's been awesome. However, the creek is a mixed blessing sometimes. It can be very intense when we get a lot of rain. We've experienced class 5 rapids on a few occasions.

Ripcord You have a creek in your yard?!?!?!

Man how awsome is that! :-P
06-05-2008 12:19 PM
tazmann910 That is a good idea..a tick mark for each rig pulled out.
06-05-2008 10:48 AM
MOz First opportunity I had with my winch, I had the pleasure of dragging my mother-in-law's boyfriend's Chevy Silverado out of my yard when he got it stuck in my creek......

I painted a red Chevy bowtie on the solenoid cover....
