winches

I have a 2011 hdx 700, I somehow fried two warn winches. Who makes a winch that will bolt on right out of the box hopefully using most or all of the existing hardware?

I fried one warn winch on mine, replaced the motor with the service pack they have. Found that the dash mounted rocker switch was sticking in the retract position. Changed switch out, and use the remote controller only, and keep the clutch in the manual position. No further problems.

I guess I've been lucky I haven't had any problem with my factory Warn winch. I only had one time that it didn't have enough power to pull me out, I took 3 Polaris hooked together to get me moving! I forgot about the snatch block I had under the hood.

Who makes a good accessory kit for the winch? I carry slings, and extra hooks, but a snatch block would be nice to add to them.

Look at the KFI site , they have some nice stuff at reasonable prices …

but a good hardware store will be cheeper and you can get what ya need v/s a "kit" with some stuff ya don't want along whit what ya do want… I got a bunch of my stuff at a Ranch/Farm store that has a great hardware selection called Big R .

name is Gary or hey you if ya forget

2009 Prowler XTZ , couple things added here and there
'83 CJ7 / SBC + whole lot added here and there
'01 Dodge / Cummins / Dually, a ton of stuff added here and there

INSTRUCTIONS FOR THE NEWBIES ...
1. Bring in a good load of firewood for the pit
2. start the morning coffee , strong but not burnt / boiled down , IMPORTANT start it early as many of us old farts get up early !!
3. sit a spell and swap some lies with the best of us
