Which winch did you use

I just bought a 2019 rzr XP turbo. I wanna put a winch on it and hook it up to a toggle switch on the dash with the other switches. What set up did you use?
Thank you

Another vote for the KFI 4500. Very clean install as well.

Re: Which winch did you use

I also picked up a Viper Elite 6000lb winch w/wireless remote and in-dash switch. I've not installed it yet (just got the RZR last weekend), but plan to install it this weekend.

Re: Which winch did you use

I got the Super ATV synthetic 4500. Great winch, but the remote is pretty cheap/cheesy, and the dash rocker switch failed after a day of riding in heavy rain (no windshield). I replaced it with a waterproof rocker off amazon.

Was this the first use? Asking to find out if the warp cap issue is from all the engine and turbo after cooler heat or from a heavy tow use. First use was extreme heavy pull. It worked for that, then the next time pulled it out it would not engage. Pulled it out and found the end cap warped out of place. Took it apart, put back together and it worked fine until I got on trail and had run for lots of mile. Pulled out and could feel the end cap was warped again.

Warn was quick to send a new cap kit. Trying to figure out a better fix. Since heat seems to be a problem, from the engine, etc. I think. Looking at some kind of wrap on the cap or a heat shield to keep the heat off winch. Other then that, Polaris now has a front bumper to mount a winch on that fits my 2018 Dynamix. $450 to over $500 depend on where bought.

Good to see it is not only me having this issue. Another reason to call Warn so they know there is a real issue and a need for a cap in a different material.

Had a superatv 4500lb on my old rzr. New rzr has a Polaris HD 4500 (whatever is stock on the trail and rock edition) both been great.
