    Haha. Yes, it lights up blue led. My mom, who passed this month at 90, gave that to me YEARS ago. It's been in every car I've owned since.

    That'll work on a cop too if you get pulled over.

    It's gad dang snowing.

    My RAM mount and arm showed up today, can't do much with it until the DMM gets here next week (hopefully) but sure does seem solid! Be nice to know what the rubber thing and the glue are for, but hey... anyone wants to send me free glue, I guess I'll just accept my free glue.

    Installed a GMRS radio and integrated the plug into the dash. Just need to get the flush screws.

    some people are adding a marine high amperage cut off switch at the battery on the positive side. There are several ways of doing this. Some think it is unnecessary but, I come from industry and any machinery I am around has an e-stop or a kill switch of some sort. I like the idea that the winch is only going to be energized when it is ready to be used and I can kill it if something goes wrong. Here is the switch I bought. It’s from blue sea systems.

    Cool thanks. I also like the idea of being able to kill the power to the winch if something goes wrong, but I'm also trying to limit how much I need to open my hood. Maybe that's unavoidable with our trucks, but I was hoping to find a bumper with access holes so I could manage the winch through those without ever having to pop the hood. If I can make that happen, maybe I can mount a switch like the one you posted somewhere I can reach it from those access holes as well.

    @MountainManGuy the SSO slimline with access holes does a pretty great job of this. I love mine! Never had to lift my hood to use it. That being said there’s a ton of great options. 252E5266-4DF7-4A6A-B335-3B67D1BE37D2.jpg

    This is perfect man thanks for sharing. I should have no problem squeezing my clown hands in there.

    I personally wanted the opposite - a bumper with no cutouts so that it matched the "stock" bumper, and was secure enough to keep someone from free-spooling my winch to steal the rope... :notsure: I'll grab the snatch strap if I need to pull someone out in a hurry...:ohsnap:

    Hmm, you have a point there. Stupid thieves! I'll have to give this some thought. Need to order that bumper asap with the lead times these guys have right now. Which one did you put on your truck? Is it the SSO without the access holes?

    I'm not saying stealing winch rope is a thang, but you never know. I paid $678 for:
    2016+ Tacoma Slimline Hybrid front bumper – CUSTOMIZE YOUR OWN
    Model: OEM+ (winch line opening only)
    Bull Bar: No
    Lighting: Plain Face or Light Bar cut out ONLY
    Finish: Matte Black Powder Coat
    Backordered: 1
    Light Bar Cut Out ONLY Options: Plain Face (No light bar cut out)
    Shipping Insurance: none

    A 10" lightbar fits in there between the clutch lever and control box for the X20 as seen in my album over here

    Been busy so a bit behind on posting here. First off, I put on some Cali Raised 25deg sliders a month or so back.






    Also put in some rock lights more recently. Ended up doing 8x LightForce Rok9 lights. A lot of work (not in mounting, but in wiring, routing the wiring and protecting the wiring) but I think it was worth it. They are super helpful around camp and light up exactly where I need to see for tire placement.



    For the middle 2x light on each side, I made a little bracket for the lights that mounted to where the sliders mount. They have been on 3x off road trips and are solid and recessed enough to stay pretty clean.

    @RyanDCLB @MountainManGuy i get the concern but I’ve never heard of it happening. Your average joe doesn’t know how to operate a winch and is probably not looking to steal your line if they do. Check out used winch rope prices. They’re not a hot commodity. That being said I can’t knock a guy for being extra safe! You’ll decide what is best and most functional for you. Either way SSO makes rad stuff and has top notch customer service. :thumbsup:
