Conner from Utah ordered one of our winch mounts for his 2015 TRD Offroad Tacoma a few weeks ago. We had inventory and were able to ship it out the next day so he could get his Taco ready to help support the race. He’s running a WARN M8000 winch with the solenoid pack on top center with ‘room to spare’ even after he mounted a couple of Baja Designs Squadron Pros on the light tabs we provide. He writes….
This weekend, we used my truck to staff the east recovery team for the Bonneville Offroad Race in Knolls, UT. We had everything from 9 cars and razor classes up to full 7100 and 8100 trucks.
About noon, we got a call from a 7100 truck was stuck in a sandy dune area of the track. They were in a blind saddle between 2 dunes with no passing zone. When we rolled up, they threw a snatch strap and shackle on one of your recovery points. As I was closing my door to start the snatch, you could hear the motor of the next truck coming up on us.
After a few stiff snatches due to weight difference, we got them out of the dune and onto the shoulder of the track safely. (The picture is right as they were able to get back under their own power.) No more than a minute later, the next truck came mobbing through the area.
Thanks to your product, we were able to recover a truck safely and make sure everyone had a great race.
Thank you for your business Conner! Great experience and photos.
