Bought her in Sept. 2017, an Arizona truck. I hope to do some amazing things with her once the warranty runs out. Between this forum and the actual facebook pages dealing with PWs, I have learned alot, and hope to continue learning!

So far so good, everything seems to work as advertised, the previous owner took good care of her. It initially had 21,000 miles on it, and I have put another 12,000 since September 17.

Used the winch to pull a little 2wd patriot out of the southern Idaho mud, winch pulled it out with no issues, except having to keep rpms up. My first winching, so lesson learned.

I got her before hunting season last year, so off we go to near the Oregon border, about a 3 hour drive from Boise, and a 21ft toyhauler with my 2 quads. ( For reference, I used my 03 H2 for this run in previous years, burned half a tank for the trip, 6.0 vortec) It pulls like a champ....figure 4750lbs of trailer and add 1200lbs of quads, gear, and water...not heavy, but not bad. I come out using just under half a tank, and since ive drawn cow elk and turkey, ill be heading that way again this year. It snowed early last season, so, for fun I locked it up and used the disconnect for the swaybar to climb into a few areas I havent been before...everything worked perfectly.

All in all, I am glad my wife talked me into getting this beast, and hope to learn even more!

I assume you bolted the receivers to the mounting plate that the factory rings were bolted to? If so, beware, that factory mount is not as strong as you might hope. They will likely bend and deform if you use one of your hooks as a sole recovery point.

If you beefed up the factory ring mount, please share what you did. :wink:

Thanks for the tip, no, I did not beef them up, but...now I know and have another project, besides, I dont think I want to use them as a sole recovery point, but as an additional. Appreciate the feedback!
