Default Shade

I ordered a shade that needed a windshield channel - used it twice.

Now I have the spiderwebshade

Smittybilt gear bags and Smittybilt Safari top. Both are of poor quality. My gear bags faded after only 3 weeks with no top. The safari top ripped on the second time using it at the seam where the windshield channel slides in. Contacted them for both issues and they never got back to me. Don't think I will be purchasing anything else from them.

Rugged Ridge side step/rock sliders. They've done what they're supposed to, but the tubing is lightweight, so they really dented and gouged when I landed on them. The mount really bent up so I'm going to have to cut them off when I upgrade.
I try to buy American made armor and parts when I can now.

Any details on this? Definitely the winch and not the wiring?
