That seems allright. You'll love that machine. I always put a winch on first then tires. I just put a #3000 Ramsey wireless with a Warn mini rocker and so far and I love it. I bought it at Tires4fun.com, they run good deals on winches. You might want to look at the Aluminum Products skid plate hook holster to go with the winch; you get the winch mount plus front skid, I really like mine. Good luck with machine, they're smoooooth as silk!!!
