    Sherpa Winches

    I've been doing my research on a winch and had just about settled on biting the bullet on a Warn Zeon 10K, but then Sherpa winches showed up. They are an Australian based company, but is now distributing in the US. The attractive thing that set it apart for me is that Uses cut steel gears...

    Winch battery safety

    When using a winch, has it ever become a runaway, due to an electrical short? Have you done anything to minimize this from happening? As this poses a dangerous and destructive situation to your vehicle, has anyone installed a safety switch? or installed one separate from the battery. First...

    What type of winch is everyone using?

    What winch do you prefer? Hand winch or electric? Why? I use a 8000lb hand winch that is used on the farm. My reasons being its light, cheap, will fit under my rear seat with other recovery gear and can be used anywhere

    Come-a-long for 4Runner?

    Looking for opinions on the use of a comealong with my '16 T4R Trail until I decide which bumper & winch combo I want. I know comealongs are not rated for overhead lifting, but is it possible to use it as a manual/hand-operated winch out on the trail? I don't plan on any serious...

    Wanting to switch from cable to synthetic winch rope

    Ok guys/gals, I've been looking into making a switch to synthetic line, but have been getting mixed opinions. A couple of months ago I jumped on a deal I found on a Superwinch TS9500 steel cable winch, the price was too go to pass up at the time and I figured I could switch out the cable later...

    TUNDRA OWNERS: C4 Fabrication needs a '14+ Tundra for bumper fitment.

    Long story short: I really like the look and general build quality of the C4 Fab stuff, particularly their lo-pro winch bumpers they have for both the 4 runner and Taco. I've got a Tundra, and emailed them to ask if they would build a Tundra version- they said they'd like to, but they need a...

    OB Approved Warn XD9000i Winch Solenoid Replacement

    One of the great things about Warn winches is their serviceability. When I first got my XD9000i it wouldn't go into freespool. The entire planetary gear assembly was removed, cleaned and got a fresh coating of grease and hasn't had an issue in over 7 years of ownership. Late last Fall there...

    Winch Damper Video

    Hello, thought I would share the usefulness or lack thereof of a winch damper video that I came across shortly after purchasing my winch dampers for recovery situations. I did return them after watching this video though. Let me know what you guys think? Should I have kept them?

    5/8" Hitch pins

    Has anyone got a recommendation for a fail-safe hitch pin? I have front and rear receivers, and picked up a winch on a cradle recently. I don't want to find myself the subject in one of those sheared hitch pin horror stories I hear about every so often (though, I've never seen photos). Can...
