For less than $150 and 15 minutes of work, I'd just replace it.

Is that the $150 LCI junk, or the $99 FIC junkier junk they put on my 2017?

I agree, get the bulldog. There is a reason why the Bulldog comes with a 5 yr warranty.

That Barker Hi-Torque is pretty powerful, but you won't get one of those for $150 either

It's the stock Lippert 3500 LIC, looks like the $150 version. I checked out Mike Thompson's, they want $290 for the Bull Dog and Amazon wants $153. Unfortunately I am in a campground in need of it now, so $290 it is. I agree, easy to just replace.

Just got it off the trailer, it's the $99 FIC, super loud one. Just hooked up the Bull Dog, nice and quiet, I like the light better and the head is smaller so I can lift the tail gate of my suburban. Not happy about $290 vs $153, but it works, I like it, time to sit around the campfire and start telling stories about stupid things we do.
