Front Driveshaft Disconnect

I've seen some new front shaft disconnect units on Ebay. They're made by a company called Wide Open, I believe. Just wondering if anyone has tried one out yet, and if so, what your thoughts are on it. To me they look just like the old Warn product.

In case you're wondering, here's a link:

Haven't heard of that brand before ......
It does look like the 'Warn' product though.
I have the '4-2-4 Warn' on my 450S Foreman. It is seldom used.
Is the 'Wide Open' dis-connect made in the U.S.A. ... ?

Mac I think the Wide Open brand axle disconnects have been discussed on here before. A search should turn up something. But I believe they are a good product.

They work good. When Warn discontinued them Wide Open picked them up and started selling them. They are identical to the Warn, and they even sell rebuild kits and replacement parts for guys who still have old Warn units.
