what is the best winch to go in a TJM T15 bumper on my DII? something that doesn't cost two testicles would be nice!!!
Cause it gets in the way while wheeling. Receiver mounts are great if your using your winch on the farm to pull **** around, or to pull someone out of a ditch. But, running them off road like that, they will end up hurting you more than helping you.texasrover said:If you run a winch.. why not run it on a receiver. You can mod that bumper to accept it or tie to frame.
No point having a winch sitting out in the weather at the mall or 7-11 when not wheeling.
Not to mention... on a receiver... you can move it to the back if you just happen to have your ass facing the wrong direction. Which always happens.
Jesus freaking crist, Steve. Do I need to go open the freaking housing and take a few pic's of the inside of my Milemarker? Do you want me leave my truck with you for a few days so you can see that the winch drains the Yellow Top over night if left connected? Are you saying they are not slow as ****?Muddy Oval said:TMax and Milemarker winches (the same) don't have the problems Hank, Dan, whatever name he's using now is claiming. They are widely used in other countries but are fairly new to the USA. Do some searching on them on the web and you'll find a lot of rave reviews. Best bang for the buck.
I've heard a lot of complaints on Warn winches burning out lately... but they're the best, right?
You dont have to buy brand new. Good winches are listed all the time on 4x4 forums and Ebay.drum655 said:lets please not let this post get out of hand like the big blue spring thread. there seems to be a lot of tense threads on here recently. lets all calm down. i simply asked about a winch and i got answers, everyone has their own opinion and i appreciate all of them! and maybe i will come across some money and i can buy a "high end" winch but unfortunately, being a school teacher does not allow for a lot of extra funds for my rover. although maybe i will win the lottery soon!!! lets keep LRO the best damn site around!!! :clap: :wave:
