winch kits / front receiver

Hello all - Just picked up a left over 2017 Foreman es eps. My question is to find out if someone has found a winch kit and front receiver that has fit well. The Warn winch mounting kit looks pretty straight forward and I like the Moose front mount receiver just wonder if anyone on the forum here has used that combination yet or any suggestions that will be helpful.

Thanks

Otto

I'm using a kfi mount and a kfi 2500 winch, I will never buy another kfi winch, I'm sticking with warn from now on.

I wanted to take the kfi off my bike yesterday and toss it in the garbage

I bought a super winch Tera 25 . Using the kfi winch mount also but I donít like the winch mount and with the superwinch it just barely fits on the wheeler . If I had to choose Iíd go with a different mount . I never see it but my buddy said the stock Honda one is way better

I will keep looking and talking with folks. I looked at the Moose front receiver and there is quite of bit of trimming the plastic front shield. I tend to lean toward the Warn mount and Warn pro vantage for now... to be continued

No triming on the kfi mount, warn winch will fit on the mount and fairlead up front, roller or the solid one.

Really ? The warn must not be as long as the superwinch ?

I just bought a kfi stealth along with the mount. Before I bought I compared lengths. The kfi wasn't as long. I'll report this weekend once the install is finished if I had to trim the rubi to work.

Finished the install, just a small trim of the plastic on one side. Kfi winch and mount were easy.
