    Those are good winches.
    The only negative I can mention, if they haven't changed motors, is that they will 'run on' for a short time after releasing the control switch. It shows more when there isn't a load, like when you're winding by hand. Be especially careful if you're rewinding the cable outside the vehicle and signaling the guy inside the vehicle who has the control.

    A tight cable will dig into loose lays/winds on the drum. This is the cause of binding when unspooling. It can be so bad at times that you need to hook to a tree or other anchor, and drive in reverse with the winch in free spool mode, jerking it free.

    Rarely are things perfect during recovery, but if the vehicle gets ahead of the winch and is winding loose cable, it's always best to stop when possible, unspool and rewind by hand. This is when you can get mashed and kinked cable.

    It got it's first body damage about 30 minutes after that picture. A tree took a liking to my door and gave it a kiss. Now I have rubicon rock rails with custom tubing guards to keep those pesky trees at bay.

    Here it is towards the end of that ride.

    That is a stellar example of how not to wheel. Or better yet, who not to go wheeling with. :asshat

    Ended up like this.

    resulting in this

    I was right behind Greg next up for the obstacle. Two rigs in our group had already made it. Greg had his front lockers on, I do not use my front lockers on off camber situations. Greg was mostly on the upper shelf of this obstacle when he started to hop. A little gas and two hops later he ended up like this.

    I've got a cable on him here pulling him back over.

    You can see that he not only fell off the obstacle he actually inverted himself a bit into a pit of sorts.

    We had 2 lines on him, me in the rear and another in front

    Pictures don't do justice and weve been by this obstacle a few times since.
    There is a bypass and we choose the bypass now.
    Gregs Jeep is back better than ever with lessons learned from that day.

    On this day my U Joint on the right front was broken.
    Just unlocked the right front hub and ran with it.
    Made for the need to winch a couple times.
