Would you ever put a winch on your XX?

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?!

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..
