Storing a remote mounted winch would be my issue right now. I've thought about what you have said about winches in the past a lot lately. Remote makes a ton of sense, for all of the reasons you've mentioned.Detroit wrote: ↑Wed Sep 05, 2018 9:52 amIf you want to go out on your own, it's probably not a bad idea.
I've found that the winch was a detriment because it gives me an extra sense of security. I'll try crap now that I never would have before the winch because I know I can get myself unstuck if need be. Not wise, really.
But, I HIGHLY recommend a remote mount winch if you're going to do it. Winches are heavy, and having that thing permanently hanging off the front of the truck adversely impacts handling and fuel efficiency. Being able to take the winch only when you're going wheeling is great, PLUS you can winch from the front or back, which can be hugely beneficial. There's also the added benefit of the anderson power poles at the front and back that you can use to run an air compressor, or even jumpstart another vehicle all without opening the hood.
What winch do you have for your remote setup?
