Forgive my ignorance, but why is it a big deal that the drum rotates in a different direction?

I don't think it is, personally. But what made it a big deal is Dodge/Ram wanted one made to "their specs". That way, you have to go to them for service....at least I think that's what they were thinking. Many of the specs on our winches, are the same as the M15000. Some speculate it is just rated lower for liability reasons. Ours do have a LVI (low voltage interupt) and a TPS (thermal protection shutdown) circuits on them. That is also a Dodge/Ram thing---not on the M15000. Liberals, trying to save us from ourselves ? :lol: Or someones idea on how to gouge the customer for more $$$$$ when it fails, later down the road ?

4Runner was a GREAT vehicle but could not even tow our 6x10 enclosed utility trailer comfortably, even when it was empty-ish.

It was time. Truck was still leaking BADLY every time it rained or snowed & melted. It was leaking at every single gasket (rear window, front window, all 4 doors). You could sit inside & watch it run down the inside of windshield, rear window & drip off the upper side door beams. It was molding on the inside & starting to stink. Needed new steering gearbox, shocks, new upgraded T-style steering, tires, brake lines, d/s manifold bolts that are barely recognizable due to rust-removed & replaced. Everyone around here would not even touch em once they looked at them.

So, say what you will. PW turned into a money pit. Was no longer a joy to drive. Hoping that this downsized 4x4 with lockers will fill the bill & have minimal problems, but..... As long as manufacturers keep making engineers design things that fail soon after warranty is up, we are going nowhere fast. Regardless of what you buy. :rockon:

It's not a big deal, it's done out of necessity so that the cable feeds from the top of the drum rather than the bottom for correct clearance and positioning behind the front bumper for the application. (I think) :run:

Factory Transfer Case Shift Linkage

Mopar Part # 55366066AB

Or you can make your own set up using a turnbuckle that is closed on both ends & adding your own jam nuts, bolts, washers, nuts & bushings. Like seen here, in the top left corner: https://www.google.com/search?biw=1440& ... cDvJ4gBgVM:

Front locker/CAD wire for 2014+ trucks. $40 replacement cost.

This is what happens when you break the connector lock tab and don't remove the pushpins for clearance.

And the newer style connector lock tab (red) whereas the stock was gray and completely disintegrated the first time I tried to remove it. This one's been removed 3-4 times no problem.

Defiant is closed, unfortunately. Can I take his spot? Lol
I got a light bar and some light brackets from Defiant when my truck was new, and the quality is as good as anything I have ever seen. When I checked with the guys at Wilco Offroad, they told me they had Defiant's production drawings and could fab at least some of the Defiant products if you need them.
