Winch

Just curious if anyone had added the behind the bumper winch on their wk2, and if so how do you like it?

Re: Winch

I have seen a YouTube video of a guy with one behind the grille. Looked awesome.

Re: Winch

I've been looking at a couple and came across that type. My 2011 is only qt1 so I'm not going all out like my select Trac 2001 but I'd like to add a couple little things.

Re: Winch

How capable do you think it is? I haven't had the chance to drive in snow yet, or take it off pavement at all yet.

Re: Winch

I've driven in 2 feet of snow no problems, on beach sand, mud. No problems at all.

Re: Winch

Yeah that's the one I saw, it looks awesome but apparently nobody has it yet. I guess I'll have to be the test subject lol

Re: Winch

Man that thing looks sweet. Unfortunately, I would never use a winch except in very rare occasion, so it would be a complete waste for me to get one of those.

On the flip side, I do have a fairly good idea for what I need to pull out of my woods in the next couple of weeks (3 very large hickory logs) - and that winch looks like it would fit the mark. Hmmmm....

Re: Winch

I know there's at least 1 one here that has it. There was a huge thread awhile back. Search.
