PBB definitely has some weirdos running around in it. But that is half of what makes the forum haha

I go to pirate quite a bit and lurk. Mostly just bug the vendors and get some good deals actually. I find the OT threads pretty funny, and a lot of the fab work pretty inspiring. I just can not relate to most of the people, or their goals with their rigs. So I don't post much.

After almost 4 years this is the only part I've replaced on this little guy.... countless pulls. Never a hiccup. One of those few time's where I feel like I got more than I paid for.

For vanities sake.... the California sun has taken it's toll on my solenoid cover.



I thought about moving the solenoid under hood, since I rarely use the controller.... now that I have an in cab switch. But this will do for another few years I'm sure. haha.... pretty exciting install tonight! Does look a lot better.

Lots of amazing talent over there , you either need to be on the same level or have thick skin .

4 years, that's awesome. I always get the: "Oh, you bought a Smittybilt winch...." It hasn't failed me yet. Every winch brand has their problems, mine hasn't stopped pulling yet....even though it's usually pulling someone else out.

The key with any winch I think, and the Warn brand may be the BEST at being able to withstand a lack of this is to actually USE them. It's when you don't that they seem to not want to work.

I agree. I am going to start wheeling a lot harder soon.....my car is being sold and I am buying a truck/tow pig....so the winch will get a workout

Go to those sand dunes north west of you.... take a bunch of pics. I've always wondered if they are anything like the ones over here. Size wise.... Next time I visit Michigan, I plan to go there maybe in a rental Jeep.

My Rubicon wasn't geared well for the sand, I had a horrible time there this past summer, I might try it again this year, who knows.

I'm pretty sure your the King of the under dogs here on JF.
-4 cylinder, check.
-dana 35 with 35's, check.
-BFG KM2's, check.
-Smitty built winch, check.
-TeraLow 4 to 1, check.
By the JF standard your Jeep should be the worst in history, yet you probably out wheel most people here. What are people doing wrong?

Key to the sand is low air pressure.... 6psi range. I usually just put around or haul *** in 2wd up some major dunes over here. You just gotta stay on top of it.

What can I say??..... I'm obviously not compensating for a lack of anything else.

I get a kick out of doing what I do with it, knowing it was born a runt and I've done little to actually change that fact.
