ive had good luck with those winches as well. I think im creeping up to 10+ LT3000's installed with zero issues.

they aren't mud boggers but most are used severely during winter months, I give em the nod.

Price sure has jumped on them! when I was buying them years ago they were only $99!


I read back on the post mention looking for a first gen exhaust - unfortunately I don't have any good ones at the moment. I will text ya if I come up with one in the near future.

Manny , Thanks for keeping an eye out for a muffler --------- I think I might go with a Caltric 1988 300 for my 92 for $190 , I have a 1988 on it now , I think there might be a little more performance from the 88 , it was the only year with the big U right out the exhaust port ..... or maybe a slip on performance muffler

Good to hear you like SuperWinch , this is my first LT3000 , I have some SuperWinch X3s

Yeah that's the only thing I didn't like about the LT3000's. Dang short cables and that breaker that ends up not fitting anywhere very well where there isn't a risk of rubbing/grounding out on the frame.

I didn't use those breakers. I just got some 5 or 6 gauge cable and went straight from winch to contactor.

That is a crazy breaker set up SuperWinch uses , double 50 amps but the way they are hooked up it is still 50 amps , if one would burn up , it would stick get voltage on one 50

Not the best pic up there , next to the SuperWinch gizmo is a marine circuit breaker that I use on my boat for the double cat head winch powered by an air craft starter , it will trip and flip , just click it back and you are going ----I kind of want to put the breaker in the front next to the winch , but if the wire were to short out between the battery and winch with them big cables it could be a melt down LOL

Never done anything to this one , still need a new muffler or repair this one , friend gave me a muffler that I could make work , the mounting bracket holes even line up well

been working in the yard and hitting the flea markets , picked up this set of Magellan waders for $5 this weekend past , cleaned them up with Dawn then some protectorant , they look in great shape

picked up a Wilton vise that someone welded a plate to the bottom , swivel plate is gone , still works and for $20 for the vise , some elbow grease cleaning it up and 1/2 a can of $5 paint , it is nice

Finally finished the winch , got it wired up and spinning --------------- decided against the wired remote switch , no place to store it on the atv with it getting messed up , maybe a ziplock bag and cram it in the truck and I doubt I would ever used it , but you never know about that , if you were by yourself it could come in handy
