could be bad design, could be bad manufacturing or bad luck. Either way, my past experience with them is that they are responsive and provided excellent customer support.
Good luck with getting it fixed. And thanks for the heads up.
I think most winch have the square nuts the same way. Usually a little tape will keep them in place.
I just watched a video on clocking the handle. I might clock mine to the rear and relocate the controller since I'm planning on using the wireless remote.
Do you know if that $30 off will stack with the discounted price?
I submitted my email and have been waiting for the coupon. If it doesnt stack, if just as well order it now.
That being said, liftkits4less had a sale and it was $571 last night. This morning, back to full price.
Try chasing or re tapping the threads. Much better than fighting cross threads.
Could even tap it out wider and insert helical insert if needed.
Or just leave it be if you never plan on touching it again . Hahah
Last time I drove through Indiana... I mean drove through (it was a sunday and I tried to buy some beer at a walmart. hahaha), I remember it being relatively flat. But yes, here on the West Coast, we've got national parks up the wazoo and there's lots of down(forward) shifting on those roads. :)
You have to set it up that way on an aftermarket switch panel.
Either a physical flip cover on a toggle switch or a primary power switch that allows the locker switch(es) to activate.
Nothing will prevent it from engaging when you press the switch if you direct wire it.
On the factory aux, there...
Just like my 2013 JKU. 👍
But yeah, when I'm sitting on my couch and pointing my remote at the tv, when I press forward, I expect the volume to decrease cause BMW does it that way. Completely natural to me.
I think it has a bit to do with visual direction. Looking at the shifter, forward is up and back is down.
The old shifter was left down and right up. Similar to how we read in the US.
So maybe not based on mechanics, but on patterned behavior.
That's my thought.
I shift into 4lo the same way I did with my JKU AT. Come to a stop, put it in neutral, shift to 4lo and then back into drive.
That being said, there have been times when I didn't put it in drive all the way and started to slide back while releasing the brakes. It's alway a WTF moment. hahaha...
