I'll give you a grand for the trailer and winch. You ain't using it anyway.I bought that badlands and the HF wireless controller when I got the new trailer in ....May?
Surprisingly I thought the lead kit with the badlands was actually better than the lead kit we got with the smittybuilt - longer and better insulation quality.
This has sat 100% outside for 6 months and you are free to check it out.
I will say this...that $50 HD wireless winch controller ...I screwed up and left it stuck to the side of my trailer (it has a magnetic base) when I pulled the neighbors "truck" for him to concord and it stayed there the whole way despite numerous rough roads...so it got kudos there
Awesome, thanks! I've also been contemplating their 12k winch, which is only $10 more, but I figure the 9k will have less amp draw.
When I bought the 9k it was one of their regular sales and was ..... $249.Awesome, thanks! I've also been contemplating their 12k winch, which is only $10 more, but I figure the 9k will have less amp draw.
You're half right. Found a good deal on a Warn XD9000i. 2 years from now it should be working and powered off of the wind turbine I'm designing for the truck that'll charge it while I drive.I've got a traveller 9k from tsc on the gooseneck trailer a 12k badlands on 24' bumper pull and a 9k in the back of the hummer. You not going to beat badlands, get one on sale, get the wireless controller like ron said and run a circuit breaker and small charge wire to the trailer battery. Or buy some Anderson connectors and run power to the back of the truck.
Or, knowing you, you'll find a 16k hydraulic winch on Craigslist "for only $400!" That just needs a little work and then spend 2 years fixing it and building a cheap 5hp hpu to mount to the trailer to run it.
Anytime my brother.Found a decent price on an XD9000i from some chick on Facebook Marketplace. Sent her a lowball offer last night and got a strong counter offer for the same price plus some nuts. Picked it up this afternoon. Went to the hood west of Gastonia known as Kangs Mountain and picked it up. Shoulda lowballed even harder, turns out it was @Susan5679 selling it for @Paul Good to see y'all!
