November 1, 2014Yup that`s right it`s a winch with a pull capacity of 17,500 lbs. the best part is I paid $480 including shipping for it. I JUST got it so it`s not even mounted yet.
I wanted to pass on the information and to see what you all thought as well. I will be taking pictures and making a video. This thing is a beast, I can`t move it by myself that`s for sure.
One question for you guys that have winches mounted IN your bumper.
Is there an easy way to hook up the hand controller or do you have to leave it plugged in all the time and somehow store it? I`m asking because my bumper only has one spot open and that will be for engaging and disengaging the winch. The side where I would plug the controller doesn`t have an opening at all.
The nice part is the winch does have a wireless controller, but if it fails I don`t want to be totally out of options.
I have thought about redoing the wiring and making the controller plug in a remote spot, but I`ll wait on that in case there is an easier option.
Pictures would be awesome too, especially for those controllers.
