The #XP3 build is all about reliability. Take my family and I far off the beaten path and get us all back home safely. With that in mind a recovery winch was a no brainer so after some quick google searching I settled on the SuperATV 5000lb Winch W/Synthetic Rope.
Upon opening the box I was immediately impressed by the quality, size, and overall appearance.
Being that it is a 5000 pound winch I was surprised/pleased with how small and compact the winch actually was. Specs show a weight of 21lbs.
The winch came with all of the expected fixin’s such as a mounting plate, fairlead, hook, synthetic rope already installed on the drum, wired rocker switch and my favorite, the wireless remote!
The winch fit “like a glove” into my RuffStuff Specialties front bumper and the installation was a piece of cake using the included hardware and wiring harness. (more on this later)
I decided to pair the winch with a Factor55 UltraHook XTV and an XTV Hawse Fairlead. Together they look amazing on the front of the #XP3 and I cannot wait to get out on the trail and get some real world use.
