    I honestly tried but couldn't figure out how to vote. Kept going in circles and got pretty frustrated, mainly because I have a pet peeve with all these different social media platforms and having to learn the nuances of each one. Guess I'm just an old curmudgeon lol You need younger friends!

    I don't know how any of this works. I am following you now though. However, when I see your icon at the top of the screen there is no red circle around it. :notsure: :tinfoilhat:

    What these guys said below. I also used some car wash to make that channel more slippery. I saw one instance where a guy cracked his windshield forcing a wire in there. I also used those plastic trim tools.

    The easiest grommet to get through the firewall is under the master cylinder so that side of the windshield was the choice on my other Taco.

    Hmm, I'd be interested in a channel for the new Taco. I didn't like jamming the wires for one light in that channel. I definitely don't want to jam the wires for 5 or more and an antenna.

    You're such a brute. You better start practicing now how to be more gentle and sensitive in your tasks.

    I'm surprised he didn't cut the ends off it and a screw driver and weld them together to make another specialty tool.

    :facepalm:

    Greetings...I was planning on going 4x4ing at Uwharrie for a week in March but that got rescheduled to September so I diverted by studies from off-roading to updating my knowledge of virology and cell physiology. A lot has happened since getting my DVM degree. I now have a much more up to date understanding of both areas plus the distribution and physiology of Coronavirus. I keep up on DNA research thru a friend that is an expert and that has kept me informed of the latest in vaccine development. I am a loner so this pandemic has not changed anything except wearing a mask and eye protection. I continue to go exploring with Taco, but my passion has always been science and engineering. I am much more interested in the forces involved in navigating rough terrain than the challenges involved. Thanks to @3pooches have I much better understanding of suspension design. My hang up now is understanding the interaction of roll center and center of gravity in 4x4 off roading.
    Everyone stay safe!

    It's fairly new in their lineup. Likely why the steel rope version is so much less. But after you add on the aluminum fairlead, and fat link hook, and replace the cable, your back up there.

    My second choice for the same amount of money is the Smittybilt XRC Gen 3 9.5k w/synth cable. The features of this are pretty damn good. The overload protection built into the controller is made for idiots like me.

    I have heard though (from my friends in here) that if you can, go with 12k over the 9.5k / 10k just because more is more and it will work less, and work your charging system less.

    They are both equally priced.

    If you have it though, Smitty does make a XRC Gen 3 12k w/Synth rope too. $742 with no deals.

    It looks massive though. However, it says the controller can be relocated. Then there's the whole deal with some places only rate their bumpers for up to 10k lb winches. I have no idea what drives that except maybe the physical size of the winch itself?
