And you can tell Keri it was on sale and you saved a bunch of money :D


Ahh, another guy for Cheesman to go on a run with.

The main reason for selling it is so I can put a tire rack on my camo '40 for CM '08. Here is a picture of my son in FJ40 nirvana. I will be selling the Red '40 in the near future. :thumb:

2nd in line if Matt doesn't want it...After the snow run I'm thinking my XD9000 is a tad small for "The Whale" :D

I can't believe Matt was that fast...He always seems to show up late on stuff like this :hill:

Jeff,

After reading your commentary about Damien I thought you might be interested.

Hey Jeff, that 9000 is a tad light, but double line it is better than nuttin'. Replace the solenoids and see what she does! Back in the day, an 8000 winch was regarded as top of the line...

You can always sell it to a minitruck guy once you fix it and it still is too small for the whale, ya know.

That's the plan...Not sure I'll ever take "The Whale" on another snow run in its current condition (wouldn't mind co-piloting for you though :thumb:) so the XD9000 doubled is probably fine for most things where the rig isn't stuck dead.

As for fixing the winch, Warn suspects the problem is either the remote control (which might be true since my control wouldn't work on the other person's winch :confused:) or within the female plug...I'll start there but probably still replace the solenoids as well anyway.

The remote seems unlikely since the thing kept going even when the remote was unplugged. You could have some major cupric sulfate inside the plug though... Whatever it did, it made both the + and ground for the solenoids, essentially 'latching' them. Teardown advised, but no need to fix what ain't broke.

I does work well, a bit slow but it kept on ticking. I can buy 2-3 of those for the price of a Warn. Before I bought it I did some research on them and they came recommended by a bunch of people. Most complained about the speed and some other little things but nothing that kept me from buying it. Still I have to wonder how strong they really are. I did winch Jeff's "Whale" out several times with it. Two times on a single line and the last time doubled up. Doing all that winching did pull my bumper forward about 1/2". Because of that I can now open and close my hood without hitting the winch, thanks Jeff!!

Matt, you can isntall that without eremoving your bumper. Takes two people for a bit though.

I used a 3 ton floor jack and jacked it up while manuvering it into position. Had someone else help hold it whil I got a couple of bolts in.

Be careful in making sure you do the fairlead right as I recall other holes need to be drilled.

Again....just to help....pull out the 40#'s of cable to make it a 1 person job! ;)

Good idea. How much weight would I save if I go to the blue cord?

3/8" Amsteel Blue weighs 3.7# per 100'
3/8" 7x7 steel cable weighs 28.4# per 100'

Matt, I am also available to help if you want to save some time and leave the cable in for now. Thinking since this is used, the Fair lead may already be drilled. Thats the key item and after that it is all easy. Needs to be drilled so the pins on the top of the rollers fit up through the holes on the bumper and the rollers are tight against it. Then the holes on the fairlead line up with the bumper. Don't drill the bumper.

Ken/UB,

Does Matt need spacers with the M12000? I needed those on my XD9000 but can't recall if the M12000 fits without them. Easier to get those now rather than figuring out you need them while in the middle or trying to get that bugger on there :)

Matt, let me know if you need any help with the install :thumb: - I'm pretty good at using straps from the rafters to hold stuff in position :hill:

Romer

I didn't use spacers. Just had to drill the fair lead to match the ARB bumper.

Uncle Ben

I had to space out my 12.5k T-Max. I used 3/8" plate and used it to secure my Aluminum fairlead higher than the factory hole by drilling new holes and tapping threads into the spacer plates.

No spacing required. I did drill the fairlead. Mucho thanks to Corsair23 for giving me a bunch of spare parts that made the install go smoothly! All that's left is to get some different battery terminals that will allow me to hook up more accessories. Pics:

Glad that my aversion to throwing stuff out finally paid dividends Matt :thumb:

If I ever end up with a M12000 though some parts may go missing from your 80 :lmao:

Remind next time I see you to see where that little finger shaped piece goes...I'm still perplexed about that piece but glad I held on to it and the other stuff :cheers:
