i have a 08 800. i have seen these winch bumpers that mount the winch up in frt. of radiator.. i just have a tubular front bumper on mine. i am a welder and fabricator. i was wondering has any of you modified the frt. bumper to mount a winch up higher. if so does it block the air flow to rad. any one have pictures

I have been thinking of doing the same thing. You might want to check out EMP's bumper, theres a video of the install that shows alot of the brackets. I think it would fairly easy to replicate.

Just be careful if your mounting to a polaris bumper. They are mounted to the radiator support, which has been known to be extremely weak.

yes i noticed that, i going to try to beef up the front support. i just don't want to add a bunch of weight. the main thing is, does it have any effect on the cooling system?:redrzr:

I prefer the warn winch bumper. Gets winch up high out of the mud and water. Also give you something solid to push through brush. please keep in made that it is heavy and you will want to upgrade your front spring if you attadd the warn bumper + winch. i went with Solaris sportsman rear springs to replace my front. The spring rate is higher so you have more umuph to hold the massive bumper.
Its also good for plowing as you are pulling directly up on the plow. Defiantly need new spring if u add plow.
