    :cough: I believe I was involved in calling you a fire hazard also..... I feel so left out.... :sniff:

    AND I disagree with your above statement!

    You're not stubborn!

    You're just a cheapskate... Errr... A cost effective person. Yeah that's it. :)

    See I just stood up for you! You can thank me for that also...

    You're welcome.

    Lol

    I thought about putting a rear winch cradle in for the idea of it being better in the back to get out of a situation if I was by myself,
    but also so I could easily remove the winch if I was not going to use it.
    But all the good points become bad points i.e
    being out the back in a cradle, is goingto really drag when going offroad,
    when you in a position to need the winch, there is a good chance you didn't install it yet (see above)
    and it will probably really suck to get it into the receiver when you are stuck.
    Proper wire and quick disconnects are going to be real expensive or a fire hazard for the properly rated winch.
    And running the wire to the front neatly and safely is going to be a pain in the ass.

    Then after all that work and $$ it looks like you "took the cheap and quick way" .

    Not even against a rear winch, although I feel it's not necessary if you want it thats fine. Just don't cheap out on wiring and create a fire hazard :thumbsup:


    If you lived closer I'd help wire it etc but you're far bruhhh

    I was having a hard time keeping up with everyone that was telling me to stop being cheap and do it right.

    :bananadead:

    I read all your input, it helped in pushing me to just put it in the bumper.

    One of the reasons I love you guys is you dont stop. If I am doing it wrong you tell me over and over and over. I really need that as I am stubborn to a point of no good.:cheers:


    I try real hard to listen to those who know wtf they are talking about, that was why I asked for assistance. :thumbsup:

    For shits and giggles I looked at hydraulic winches. Unfortunately adding a 3000-5000 psi hydraulic system to power it along with the control valves would be significantly more expensive than 0-ga cable. :laugh: It's more appropriate for farm tractors and construction equipment that already has a hydraulic system for other functions.

    Then I could run a snow plow, or bush hog, or core drill....endless possibilities with hydraulics

    A friend of mine built a hydraulic which for his Land Rover. Its crazy powerful but cost a tonne, is very heavy and was expensive.

    There is a system you connect to the power steering pump lines which lets you use it as the pump for the winch. ;)

    No idea if it would work on a Tacoma's system though, and probably by the time you're done screwing around....

    Oh No,

    You're not accusing me of; knowing what I am talking about....
    I won't take credit for that....

    I just wanted credit for being an asshole and giving you a hard time... Don't worry I won't stop.

    I have a quota you know.

    @Joe23 @daks I’m seeking wiring advice. Looking to add a 400W Power invertor and a CKSA12 ARB compressor (max draw rated 9amps) roughly 20ft away from the battery. Can you recommend a proper wire size for the circuit?
