I will be using it 3-4 times a year. Smitty?Engo? Quadratec?
Tell me more about this connector set. I hope to be adding a Q9500is soon myself.That's roughly the number of times I expect to use my winch, which is why I went with the Quadratec Q9500i. It's worked good so far, with the only problem being corrosion on the plug for the remote. I'll be taking care of that with a weather proof connector set for the remote.
$1000 for a Warn M8000?I had a warn on my last jeep. $1000.00 + winch. Worked perfect. If I could afford another one I would. I will be using the winch maybe 3-4 times a year. Not sure if I want to spend. $1k on a warn.
You don't need to spend $1000 to buy an American made Warn winch. https://www.google.com/search?hl=en...2.products-cc..2.4.646.KJDnAS71NDo&gws_rd=sslNot sure if I want to spend. $1k on a warn.
This is the one I bought. It's plastic, but seems to be decent quality. Cheap, weather proof (sealed with silicone o-rings) and looks to be a decent fit.Tell me more about this connector set. I hope to be adding a Q9500is soon myself.
All the more reason to pony the few extra hundy & get a warn. I'm no stranger to harbor freight or CL, but IMO there are certain areas one shouldn't skimp out. Sure it may foot the bill short term, but long term support, resale value, & confidence in a winch actually working the 3-4 times a year should be taken into consideration.I will be using it 3-4 times a year?
Where would be a good place to put the solenoid box under the hood? I haven't received my winch yet and haven't really looked under the hood but I'm lost as to where would be a safe place. Also what would be a good way to waterproof it? For instance, silicone caulk around the lip?If it really could and hold up long-term too, Warn and all of the more expensive winch manufacturers would long be out of business. It doesn't.
