Default Moose Handguards for 08 Rubicon

I am looking at the Moose Handguards and from what I have read here they seem to be pretty good and people like them. A few questions, do they interfere with the winch handlebar mount, are they easy to install and do I need to remove and reinstall anything, and how close does the red color match Honda red?

Also what about more comfortable handgrips than stock...any ideas, thoughts, or suggestions?

Thanks!

What kind of moose guards are you looking for, These are the ones I have and they work just fine...... and they're soft so you can never break them.

I am not sure the model # of them but they are red plastic I think and go for about $60. Soft ones not a bad idea either.

They look pretty decent! Spring loaded is cool option.

I had a pair of moose gaurds on my 02 foreman in olive,they matched good.The only problem I had with them was my lift handle for my plow would hit gaurds,had to shorten handle.I am going to put a set on my Rincon.
