2018 xp turbo Polaris winch

I'm trying to install the winch I got from the dealer when I purchased the rzr. It's the 3500# part number 2881671. On there website this is also what comes up for the 18 turbo. My questions has anyone with a 17 or 18 installed the Polaris winch, it seems the mounting plate does not fit in between the frame where it is supposed to. The front holes line up perfect but the rear holes are to high and the way the frame is it doesn't seem like it is the right part. My dealer is closed Sunday and Monday so just trying to figure it out before I can call them on Tuesday. Tried to get some pics, you can see the front holes line up, the backs holes are almost an inch off.

Re: 2018 xp turbo Polaris winch

I’d say install a winch bumper I installed one in there on my 16. What a stupid place to jamb a winch in. It is a tight fit!!

I put the winch in its not that tight, but the bracket I think is wrong. The 16 to 17/18 frames are different in the front from what I've read

Re: 2018 xp turbo Polaris winch

I put a motoalliance winch mount in my '18 xpt4 and it fit great. But I was told by the dealer that the factory winch mounts are a very tight fit.

Thanks for all the replys, very tight is fine but I do not see a way that this mount will fit. It says it fits 2016 xp1000, and xp turbo. Basically I'm thinking if the frames are different in the 18 I need a different mount maybe the dealer messed up.

Just so everyone knows I got an update from the dealer and there techs. They said its the right part but it never fits right and they told me to use a hammer and a pry bar possibly a vice and bend it a little bit. Not what I hoped for when you buy oem but if anyone else has the same problem or is looking for a winch id go with some of this other systems that everyone says just bolts right in. Thanks for the help guys!

I picked up the Super ATV 4500 for my 17 XP4T. I found, the KPI winch mount gave me much more room than the Super ATV mount. For $50, it was a quick and easy fix.

Re: 2018 xp turbo Polaris winch

I had the same problem with the winch plate for each of our RZRs. The plates were close to fitting but would not quite fit. I used a small lever to make the first plate fit. The second and third install I had to use a small hammer and a block of wood to get them into place.
Getting the winch into the XPT was tricky but it did fit after quite a bit of wrangling. I recall jacking the front end up and removing a lower shock bolt to gain enough room to fit the winch.

Re: 2018 xp turbo Polaris winch

I said screw it just ordered

https://www.hmfracing.com/equipment/...zr-xp-turbo-19

See how this goes. I not beating or prying on shit that should fit... I expect better from OEM Polaris parts. What a joke.

Let you know how this goes.

On our 19 XPT I had to put the winch up in there before bolting the plate in. It's not real fun but doable. Slide it to the opposite side you are bolting. Don't forget the loctite, it's not a sport you want to play twice.

I used a high speed rotary grinder to open up the rear holes a little, Then it was doable, but not easy..
