    Put detroit up front or ARB in D60? ARB expensive and more moving parts. Detroit, near indestructible, must run with hubs unlocked on-road and rough to steer, but so is ARB when locked. Lets do a poll on detroit or ARB?
    Next, best winch (for my K5) for money and where at?

    I have the xd9000i myself and that's plenty winch for me. I'm going with a Detroit for the front after I get the 5.13s that I bought from Wayne.

    I would go with the Detroit up front.

    And, I would go with the 12,000 lbs. Warn, but that's the recommended winch for my trucks GVWR. [​IMG]
