Re: Winch rope extension question

Damndest thing: clicked the link for kicks and was able to get 40 feet. Do some splicing and it will be a nice winch extension.

Last time it was on sale I got 40 feet to make soft shackles. Must have been lucky.

Re: Morimoto fx’rs

I did my own work also. Fortunately on Gen 3 trucks it's super easy to get the lights off the truck to work on them. the one gripe I had was the poor quality of the resistors included with the wiring harness from The Retrofit Source. They were big, poorly made and failed (melted) early. I bought som...

Re: Lockers in 4HI

Probably better to use low power wires from the switches to relays, then bigger wire from the relays to the lockers. The switches should be powered by a source that only comes on with the ignition and you should have a way of cutting power to the relays(eg: pulling a fuse) to avoid activating the lo...

Re: Anyone care to guess?

Installed mine on Tuesday. Bit of a pain in the ass because I did not have a box end wrench big enough to fit so I had to use an adjustable wrench and a 24mm socket. Do yourself a favor and buy 2 1/4" long bolts and save yourself some turns tightening the stover lock nuts. Probably really could use ...

Re: What's your upgrade?

If you are looking for an onboard air compressor then I'd suggest the ARB dual motor / dual cylinder 13 volt compressor. It produces 90 PSI and is a 100% duty cycle compressor. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk How long does it take to air up from 20 to 60psi? I am leaning towards these guys with ...

"It just would not lock up"
Kind of Sh*tty that the lockers don't work when you need them.
Hardwire them, they work any time near instantly
