Just put the Winch on!!!

Just recieved my Superwinch epi9s.





Installed it with a Mile Marker WInch Plate. I had to configure a few things, like cut and bend some holes to fit the front winch mount bolts, but other then that looks and pulls amazingly well.

Lol ah yes synthetic rope. I have synthetic rope on my ATV winch. Just make sure when you winch, the path is clear or trees, rocks, etc. The synthetic can get chewed up pretty badly if not taken proper care of

Other than that, it's great. Very flexible, easy to maneuver and spool out, easy to clean and handle.

I have the same kit and love it! It saved my ass numerous times last weekend. I would suggest picking up the cover they sell to protect it and the rope as well!

Where did you get it from? Amazon.com was selling them for $730 last time I checked. I'm debating between that one and the Warn M8000.

Woo...few hours of work and here is the finished product. I used my Acc Bumper Bar with this set up. I had to remove the lower bar and move it to the bottom. Then i measured the top bar to fit the winch in between it snugly. I cut the top bar and went to home depot to pick up rubber covering. All worked out great!!!

Looks great... On a bit of a tangent is your screen name an allusion to the dr venture from the venture bros?
