    Not concerned that it will get soaked in water as you drive around?, seems like it would stay in the water so low.

    With the 30 tires and the majority of trails we end up on, its rarely underwater. It sat underwater for about an hour and still works great. No winch is sealed so maintenance is key.

    Alaskankid13, the tube between the frame members, did you add that? I dont recall mine having it, but it is an older model 2011. Is that to reinforce the frame? Curious, is that a problem spot? Im new to these 6xs.

    Here's mine, I love it.
    Someday someone may kill you with your own gun, but they should have to beat you to death with it because it is empty.
