    That's a blacksmith's vice. They were made rugged so that you can bash the hell out of them. I also have one and definitely agree about the handle - got my fingers pinched in there a few times.

    Unlikely a new switch is faulty - but not impossible.
    Just disconnect (at least) one wire from the pressure switch and the pump should stop. If so, it means the problem will likely be the pressure...

    With a new vehicle, batteries seem to last 4 to 5 years. Buy a new battery and you are lucky to get 3 years. Now why would that be?

    You might want to investigate the truck seat option. There are quite a few shock absorbing seats available these days and almost all trucks use them. I can vouch for their effectiveness. I know they...

    Steel winch cable - unused

    I have an unused steel winch cable (replaced mine with dyneema when new).
    It is from a 12,000 lb winch.
    Anyone still use these and need a new/spare?

    Started cleaning it after returning from the Cape last night. It was a lot more fun getting it dirty than it is getting it clean again - that red dust gets everywhere and is not easy to get rid of.

    They are only for use with soft shackles of course. I also have concerns about abrasion and friction as well as how (or if) they will remain aligned with the haul line.
