Their Blazer winches with the two and three motor set up have some very fast empty line speeds!!!   Like a twin giggle pin motor 8274.    But the prices are comparable.    Just have to compare the quality and availability of parts I guess.....

Technical Discussions / comeup winches

There seems to be some interest and distribution lately in the US for what appear to be quality Taiwanese winches.

Guys have been happy with the price/performance of these, in comparison to Warn, specifically.

There had been earlier supply of mainland Chinese winches, such as the King One/Goodwinch, Keeper and a few others. I don't think there was much consensus that any of those were in the same market that Warn was. This may not be the case here, and Warn may have a competitor to be concerned about.

Anyone else think they catalog and organize their fasteners and go to put that part back on your truck and that well organized fastener is nowhere to be found? You put it in that spot you think you will remember but remembering never happens! Trying to organize well with labeling bags etc but wow it’s tricky to find some of the bits you put away for safe keeping!
I'm glad I'm not the only one that put parts away for safe keeping and not remember where safe keeping is.


Very nice job so far. 
When you get finished with your project do you want to come over and do mine?  I might have found all the parts I put away for safe keeping by then.  LOL
Thanks! Sure I’ll get right in yours! Mine seems to be taking an eternity!
I’m sure my bits will show up at the end :) after replacement.......

In August you shimmed the firewall to make it sit plumb.  How did you level the frame before adjusting the firewall?
I put the level on the frame rail then just used a jack to level the frame. Think I put the frame on a jack stand at one end. It was pretty close anyway. I leveled both rails.
Also had the sill rail handy to check square off. This is adjustable too so mostly used my level and a level frame but was good to see how the sill rail and bulkhead are sitting in relation to each other. My doors sent on yet so we will see how it works! I imagine I’m still going to have to shim the sill rail too....
