Ive pulled mine sideways several times and had no problems.I mean if your stuck and you tie on to a tree thats within arms reach its not going to pull you far.The remotes just nice to have in all kinds of cituations imo.A remote would be useless if you didnt get off the wheeler b/c then you could just use the rocker switch.you should have no problem instsalling a winch.......pretty straight forward imo.
