Works well







Wiring:
Y/gr +12
Blk grnd
Br out
Bl in

It supplies +12 when triggered. Run-on is maybe 100-200ms. Well less than a half second. Totally useable.

If I had a hard wired winch, I would want a switch on the +12 to the wireless receiver if it was wired like I did mine. wouldn't want any chance of interference triggering it while not in intentional use.

Probably pirated their design and put different stickers on it

I got one side torn down today and that's it. Far cry from finishing suspension. Didn't even get to the welding part. So much for finishing before the rain :(

Hoping to pick up spring bushings from Brad's today, they're shot too and bolts are too sloppy to bother reassembling without.

Front hanger holes are egged out, going to try to do a lil fill-n-drill before welding washers over to reinforce. Hopefully that works out well. Otherwise I could just cut out new hangers....

Going to pull hubs too. Brake issues need checking. Rear brakes sound like something is broken in the drum.

I'm half tempted to overnight bushings and a disc conversion for Sunday install but I think I'll do one more go-around on these stupid electric drums. I hate trailer brakes.

Fucking pain in the dick.

Driver side is all done. Haven't looked at brakes at all.

At least it's mobile until I tear into the px side. Will be easier now that I know what not to do and now to make less scrap. Need extra brutality.

With lessons learned on the left I did the right side in 2.5 hours including setting up and tearing down shade and cleaning up. It was in very slightly better shape to begin with; one fewer wollowed hole.

Fuck me. Calipers don't clear the trailer/ suspension. Axle would probably need to be 1-1.5" wider. on. each. side.

So! So much for great brakes upgrade. Guess I'll check into Southwest Wheel return policy. Of course I paid about $150 in shipping an have already packed all 8 bearings :-/

This is the only clocking where bolts lines up but that's not a big deal at all. The caliper hits the springs or frame no matter where it is.

I'd be okay it it was spring over or had a narrower frame. I'm short at least an inch of clearance. Shitty!
