On Friday I got my Rancher so stuck my buddy's 2001 500 Rubicon with semi-mud tires in low range couldn't pull me out. We had to put a ratchet strap on it to get it out! I think I need a winch lol.

Chasecoker, how did you wire up the light bar...just tie into the high beam and ground it or did you do something more sophisticated? How is the NAPA light bar working out? Pics?
I ran a set of wires from the battery to the handlebars, and used a toggle switch. I didn't mess with any of the stock wiring.
The light is a little dirty, it does shine OK. I will try to get some better pics tomorrow it was raining so.

I also mounted this on to the back rack. It has five LEDs in it. I tied it into the switch the front bar uses.

This monday it was like Christmas early. I got in my starter and my lift kit for the fourtrax
I got the lift put on but not the starter. Lol
The lift was easy to install once I did the first shock bracket. I rode the bike kind hard after install and I didn't see any issues. The lift is supposed to be 2 inches. I got about 1 1/2 to 1 3/4. I don't have the blocks perfectly straight so I think that is why.
The pic of the bike on dry land is without the lift the one in the water is with.

I also put a new cable on the winch. The old one was toast so I found some new 1/4 in cable instead of the 3/16 that was on it.

That isn't stuck the front wheels are not even dug in yet.. I wont even pull anyone out unless they actually are stuck, I am not in a habit of getting my strap or winch rope dirty unless you would of got on the front of that rack stand or sit backwards on it and drove it out. That's why them front wheels have a diff in the middle of them.. Them front racks are not for putting stupid (#(t on them, like speakers and monster stickers they are for standing on and sitting on and operating the flipper during extreme off road situations.. There don't say you didn't get the memo...
