The ones I've been looking at are rated for 9-12K, that sounds like one meant for a smaller capacity winch, which I've seen all over in my search.

I bought the Boostworks sector shaft support kit and it's super nice. I just need to cut, drill, tap some 5/8" plate for full sector overkill.

You should look at the ironman4x4fab one if you haven't already. Does more than just brace the sector shaft.

I have looked at that one actually. What more does it do, I must be missing it? Are you referring to the straps going around the gear body itself?

Yes I am. When you brace the sector shaft, play has to go somewhere so it goes to the box, then the box moves against lovely aged unibody. There will be a noticeable difference with out the clamp, but its not all gone. The clamp fixes that issue.

Mind you, you need make sure the box spacer isn't broken, thats sort of important lol.

What did we learn about supporting sponsors?
Just about any of our vendors can get you the same deal

Good info to know, thanks for the breakdown. I'll check there's out. Seems like it would be easier to make something like that...

I'd support any vendor that can get me a Warn M8000 for $500. Who is it that you have in mind? I'll place the order today with them and cancel my order with 4WD. I'm weird and like supporting those on these forums and local guys. I bought a recovery rope from a guy 2 miles from my house, same as a Bubba rope. I'd rather put money in my neighbors pocket all day.

Quadratec price matches and am pretty sure Daves does also. Some of the other vendors more than likely will also.

I agree 100% on keeping your money local when you can.

Well the deal I got wasn't a everyday price, they were having 10% off Warn and then 10% off site wide over the weekend, so I'm not sure how that would happen. If you have a member here I can PM then I'll do the leg work but I've been on the phone all morning, so I'm a little tuckered out.

With the sitewide 10% thing they may not match but here is a post from
Quadratec http://www.naxja.org/forum/member.php?u=47373

"The majority of our Web Department own XJ's. They really push for any new XJ parts in the catalog and on the web.

We do price shop our competition now, and if a price is less elsewhere we do price match.

Also: We offer a forum discount to members! For a discounted quote you can go about it 3 ways:

1) PM me with your first & last name, address, zip and the part numbers you would like to order. I'll reply back with a discounted quote if applicable. This takes 1-2 business days (or less) on average depending on PM volume.

2) E-mail my sales rep Rob at: RobW@quadratec.com Tell him you're a Forum user and would like a discounted quote. He'll get that going for you. He typically responds within hours if it's Mon-Fri 8am-5pm Eastern.

3) Call my sales line at 1-800-745-2348. Tell them you're a Forum user and would like to place an order with your Forum discount. Their hours are Mon-Thurs 8am-Midnight, Friday 8am-9pm, Saturday 9am-5pm.

Whichever you prefer works for us.

Thanks & have a great day!

-Rick"

Then there is DavesOffroadSupply http://www.naxja.org/forum/member.php?u=68839
Not sure if he price matches but doesn't hurt to ask.

Aren't quadratech and 4WD one in the same? They pissed me off so bad I've never bought anything from them ever again.
