I have a 2009 Rancher AT 4x4. I recently purchased a Warn 2.5ci winch that I am planning on installing. The Warn mounting kit that is sold for this atv is for the RT/XT 25/30 only. Has anyone installed the 2.5ci winch on a 2007, or newer, Rancher? Will this winch fit on this atv? Any help I can get on this would be appreciated.

I know I'm stating the obvious here, but did you look at the warn site to see if they have a mounting bracket for your machine?

I think there's a couple guys here who have a new rancher, but not sure they have winches.

Oh, I follow you now. You bought a discontinued winch and want to know if it will fit on the mounting bracket made for the new model winch?

I think it will be an easy modification to make it fit if it doesn't already. Probably just have to drill a few new holes.

In fact, if you look at the spec sheet for the 2 models, the mounting bolt pattern is the same for both.

my biggest concern is the space available for the winch, which is why I was hoping that maybe someone else has tried this before me.

Roger that. Looking at the specs, not only are the mounting holes the same for both winches, the overall dimensions are nearly identical.

If no one else replies who has mounted a winch on a new rancher, then I'd go ahead and buy the mounting kit because I think it will work.
