Me too!

And 100' of synth rope from Viking offroad. Plus Jon just replaced the motor bearings and rebuilt it all with better grease. Should work great for me I think.

Might get a 10,000lb one at some point but for a first winch I'm super stoked.

Now I'm not so worried about doing intense stuff alone with my little bro.

Should be sweet

Very kool on the synth rope. Only way to roll.

The only trouble I had was with the thr free spool lever. It isn't the best design. SB sent me a free replacement when mine wouldn't disengage.

Main battery. Only way to connect it. It's closest to the alternator which is most important. Everything I found for dual batteries always says main battery to be close to the alternator.

I'm gonna put a hand throttle in too for crawling and winching to keep the alternator at a steady 140 amps. Then link the batteries and ill be good.

Correct!

Well I still have my lf240s hooked up there just cause the wire harness is just made to go there. Probably won't move it as they don't go on a lot anyways.

But yes. Fridge and freez for sure second battery as its isolated and then the fridge can run all night and drain it but your starter stays strong to start the truck in the morning.
