SB50 or SB175? These are the 175s. For a 100% duty cycle they're technically not big enough for the 350A that the winch could draw, but the winch modular cables that even Warn uses are this...

And this is exactly why I don't like using third-party photo hosting sites. Eventually that third-party site closes up shop or changes their terms of service and then you're left with no photos.

Heh. All three Hardbody trucks I'd owned combined cost me $3200 to purchase. Cheapest was $450. Fortunately I never had a bad engine to deal with but I'd expected to with the $450 one.

Looking for suggestions on a mild lift of a D40

'15 Frontier SV crew cab long wheelbase 4x4. I've already gone to slightly larger tires and wheels, 255/75/17 on factory steel wheels that were the spares on certain years of Frontier, Xterra, and...

Vibration resolved through a bit of stress on the frame?

So as we're all aware, these trucks have a bit of a penchant for vibration. My crew cab longbed is no exception, and it usually manifested around 50 MPH.


Recently I bought a travel trailer and...

I've heard the argument that mounting outer-side down will lead to a valvestem being broken off when four wheeling. I find this unlikely though, at least when considering that the sidewall of the...
