    So after speaking with Warn (they have been awesome so far), I was informed the style i have now is the new style and they dont use nuts in them. I was told not to leave it loose, that it needs to be tightened down. So I was asked to tighten down on it. If it strips the threads, they will send me a new motor (the side that stripped). My concern is that this is the second one that its happened at the same location. But ill see what happens tonight when i take their advice.

    Mine didn't have the rod either and I noticed in the Install instructions it said that it may not be there to remove.

    Will probably do something along those lines and keep it as a spare.

    Good guess on the pitch. Thats kinda pricey for one thread size, but i like that design better than helicoil.


    Looking at the bolt after it came out, im thinking I can get a little longer bolt. I upped the size from what was supplied from 20mm to 25mm. Im thinking i can go 30mm and not bottom out in the winch.

    Call around to local automotive machine shops, they might stock the time serts. could probably have both holes on that 1/2 done for under $20ish.
    Some days I wonder why I don't go to McMaster first! Can you drill/tap to 1/2"-13?
    I am SO ordering these to put in my trail kit.
