    yea when I came across it I knew right away I had to share it here

    definitely a legit piece for a stealth winch

    Good to know. I love my FJ, but more space is always nice. Can't say I don't constantly have my eye on ih8mud classifieds. Though has would be killer on my ~ 80-100 mile round trip commute.

    There's lots and lots of guys on there that have had much better experiences with their 100's because they did their due diligence before their purchase.
    I will say, my gas milage is actually slightly better than it was in my Tacoma. It ends up being a little more costly per fill up because it's a larger 22gal tank, but I get more out of it between fillups than I did before.

    Lol, so I just looked up the winch plate to see what it costs new and it only 154 shipped brand new, so I guess its not as smokin of a deal as I thought. There are other brands of the same thing and those are 400 so big question is why the huge price difference?

    well since 2011 TJM started production for some of their parts here state side, so maybe that has helped cut costs on a bunch of items avoiding the entire importation time and expense

    yea the inconvenient truth... I wasn't sure how china made its was into this convo, I didn't know TJM was manufacturing there.


    I was under the impression TJM was manufacturing their stuff both over in Australia and now here in the states...

    i was saying that, my guess was USA made would be cheaper than Aussie made.

    for sure China beats both...

    Forgot to add last week's upgrade, but about 6 months after replacing the passenger side seat leather I finally got around to redoing the driver side!
