I know these are "sport" quads... but i'm seeing some serious rock hills and i'm not gonna let my utility buds pass me up on this stuff. So anyone thought about putting a winch on the front?! :D

Sure, if it were in the middle of Febunever.

:p
I'll remember that when I remind you about your "i'll tackle any trail" comment too.

I can't say that it hasn't crossed my mind to make one as I am the man behind the creation of KFIProducts.com. I could look into designing one if anyone is interested in a winch. I don't think I would put one on mine, but then again you never know.

I think next time i go up any STEEP hills, i'll just have someone hold the front end down with a rope - so it wont loop on me.

no winch heh. i flipped mine on a hill ... only because an asshat was standing in my path on the way up and I had to stop. More speed is all you need. Provided someone doesn't make an error and dead stop in a mudslop ... this xx will go damn near anywhere a ute will ... and will make it through provided you dont stop ... and if i needed a winch to go through something ..id much rather find my way around instead of a ... stopping to begin with..or b totally fucking up a good trail with needless ruts.

thinking about it a little more ... i suppose if i was riding with some less-experienced weekend warrior type guys or whatever ... and there was a very portable type winch available ..i might be apt to install it ... its always better to winch one of the asshats out of that mudslop you knew yourself not to stop in than it is to go push something out and getting all your gear full of mud while the guy that was stuck laughs at you ... all the while he or she not knowing thats the last time they go riding with you haha.

I figure ... there are 2 kinds of riders ... riders that enjoy the challenge of putting the hammer down and weaving through the bullshit ..and the kind that would get a freakin tank stuck in a pasture ..ya know those guys that think 4x4 is an absolute must only because they haven't figured out there are other ways to get things done other than tearing up trails and causing horrid ruts for the rain to come wipe out trails later...the same guys that have given atv riders a bad name and thus being the reason atv's are not allowed at many of the places they once were.

I'm already looking into it..I put one on my raptor..It worked great..With irs on the xx people are gonna end up going threw deeper mud than they would normally on a straight axle..The xx was made to be a cross over..A winch makes sense..

If you do any winter riding, it's sort of handy at times... If you're a good fabricator you can rig up a nice quick remove system...

XX + Mud Tires + 6 Pack Rack Fulla Cold Ones = Need for wench lol

True the idea of the XX was to try and pull a mixed crowd of sport and ute owners so if your intent isn't to pound trails and jump dunes then slap one on there

I am all for a winch..... Or an airtight airbox/stealth snorkel for the deep stuff.

In my opinion, I bought this bike for its hybrid capabilities. I would love to have winch and snorkel.. maybe even dare I say it???? 4WD. The we have a kfx700 I know, but still. It would be much more sport oriented. And if we needed power, well we all know plenty more is on tap if we uncork.

I have a winch on my 4x4 foreman and if they had one I would put one on my 700xx. even if it was just for the weight to hold the front down more. (not all of us 4x4 quad owners tear stuff up like "trailin me" thinks. I would look more at the 2 wheelers for that damage)
