1) How heavy would you say your bumper is and 2) do you have steel cable or synthetic line on your winch? These coils are actually a little on the tall side of what I'm looking for, especially given how light and stripped down my Jeep is...

Altogether, I'm around 120lbs I guess. Warn puts the winch (steel cable) at 85 lbs, plus add in the fairlead, bumper frame, hoop, end caps, and steering skid...and I'm pretty certain you're in there. Metalcloak doesn't indicate the weights of individual products (on mobile anyhow), so for the most part I'm guessing... Except for the bumper frame, which is listed at 8.5lbs (Al).

I've tried to keep my rig light as well... Be glad to pm you if you have any other questions about how I'm set up, or want any pics..

Great way to start off the morning. NOT. Stuck before 7 AM. Checking out the trails after last nights rain and caught te rut wrong on the road and it slid me down the hill. Never been so close to flipping! Self recovered myself after about 45 mins. Thank God for my in cab winch control.

Wow looks really snotty there, I bet that was a wild ride to the bottom. Where I live it's dirt, sand, and rocks, looks like a fun place to wheel.

Ordered one of these, except with 8 switch slots and no switches. Will be ordering 8 Contura V switches from OTRATTW soon. Already have applications for each switch.

Used PB Blaster to get out the screws for old mirrors so I could install new mirrors. Laid door flat, juiced her up, 3 beers later they came out like nobody's bidness. Now they look all purty

I didn't need switches, so it was a lot cheaper. An Spod is way more expensive and wouldn't work for my applications. Plus it only has 6 switches.

Left alumi-wallet and phone on hood and pulled out of home depot, noticed just as they were sliding off. Phone survived but alumi-wallet did not perform "as seen on TV".
