If you have a Warn winch with an intergrated solenoid, you can disreguard this post. To the others: My winch, like any other without intergrated solenoids uses two support rods that run across the top. Although in an ideal world, the cable would always spool onto the drum perfectly, mine never does with a load on it, and the cable rubs against the support rods and it first loosened and removed one of the rods, and today, it broke the winch. I'm going to have to warranty my winch out and I've only used it three times. I'm seriously considering ditching this entire design of winch (it's not the brand name, it's the fact that it has too much cable for the size of the drum, but the big Warns are the same way). Has anyone else had this problem? If they will refund my money I'm going to just get an HS9500i as I don't really run mud anymore and a bigger winch won't do me much good. This sure pisses me off though! What a crappy design! Worst case scenario, I'm going to repair this one and remove about 20' of cable.
