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 ?

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:
