420 - winch dimension problems
I just bought my first ATV a couple weeks ago, a 2010 Rancher TRX 420FPE. So far it's great but I want to put a winch on it. I was ready to go with the Promark but I've pretty much decided to go with the Moto Alliance VIPER. They have a great deal on ebay for $225 for the 2500 lb. with a great accessory package including the mounting plate for the 420 (EBAY Winch)
However I'm worried about the section that states:
VIPER Max Kits - Honda Rancher
o All 2004-2007 Rancher 350 & 400 Models
o All 2000-2003 Rancher 350 & 400 Models
o All 2007-2010 Rancher 420 4x4 Models (does not fit 2x4)
o Please Note: Winches larger than the MX2000 may rub on the tires when turning if the tires are larger than stock
I might like to change tires at some point to something a little more aggressive but don't want to cause a problem with the winch.
I also talked to a service guy at the local shop and he said they have had problems with the size of some of the "off brand" winches on the same ATVs not fitting as well and had to go with the Warn. Anyone had any experience with this? The 2000 lb. is about $20 cheaper but I'd rather have the 2500.
Anyone have any thoughts or similar experiences with the space problem on the 420?
