$5295 not too bad?
may not look like much now ?, but by the time you pay dealer fee's, taxes, balloon payment, and all that crap ?, that $ 5295 will end up being very close to 8k when all said and done..lol.

I'd say you got a great deal. Around here your model can be had for $6300 sticker price is the lowest I could find, and that was a 2018. And all you'd pay on top of that, from the good dealers at least, is sales tax, $100 DNR trail registration which you'd have to pay for anyway, and about a $400 destination charge. So your sticker price of $5295 would get you out the door for $6165 around here. I can't imagine your sales tax and other fees putting your out the door much above that amount either. And if you didn't finance then no extra cost there. Heck you probably paid less than shadetree puts into a rebuild all said and done :wink. Welcome aboard.

Dealer wants to install a warn vantage 3500# winch for $500. Is the vantage discontinued with the pro vantage taking its place? Not sure if they are pushing old stock. Said they don't carry the pro vantage. Should I just do the winch on my own? Is synthetic rope better than cable?

pro vantage is best, to me, rope with roller fairlead is the way to go, yes you should install it yourself. KFI mounting plate, pro vantage 2500S warn winch, KFI roller fairlead, one and done !.

Provantage is my choice as it’s the premium Warn winch. But now they (I think) are outdated? And the new Warn series are the VRX and Axon winches? But I haven’t looked to far into them yet to be honest.

Checking around seems the warn VRX 35 is the one being used now. Is there a problem with having to mount these winches upside down. I know the vantage and pro vantages were too from what I understand. Just not too savvy on this.

Pretty sure they aren’t mounted upside down if you use the Warn mount.
