    ARB bull bar & winch on a 7.3L Super Duty that's old enough to buy beer

    It can be a little tricky to source info on trucks as old as mine so I thought I'd throw this out there for anyone else rocking a first generation Super Duty. I wanted a winch on the diesel pig because it seems unlikely our buddy with a TJ is gonna pull our ass out of a snowbank. So I went...

    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...

    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...

    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

    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...
