Whoa, whoa, whoa.... that was supposed to be our secret!  :D

Well I guess Greg from PRG did me right when he recommended the 650s (I told him I was already running a winch and that a bumper was in my future). I honestly didn't think they were too stiff before the bumper, and they're much softer now (although still very acceptable) with the bumper but no winch mounted yet. I probably would have liked the ride of 700# more, but the 650# will be fine.

Just buy some timbrens if it's a little too soft.

I was actually already considering that Steve. I know you're quite happy with yours. Might even be my next purchase. :)

Installed a new winch. Smittybilt X2O series, 10,000 lb. I bought the one with the steel cable and installed my masterpull synthetic line. The Smittybilt synthetic line didn't seem like it was worth $150 more.

It looks like they have redesigned them a little. What the switch on the top of the box?
