My buddy is wanting to put a winch on his 420 and wanted to know what mount to use, and to see what they look like on the machine. Thanks for any pics
Yea man I went with the Viper and its pretty strong for a 2000 winch!!!!I just bought a 420, it hasn't even arrived yet but I'm looking into winches. I was looking at the warn 2500lb and the gorilla 2500lb.
Any opinions? I know Warn is 'the' winch to get but they're quite pricey. I'm certain there are nice winches out there that are more affordable.
I was also considering Viper and for a budget winch, Champion.
Really expensive here in Canada.I have a warn RT25 on my foreman and I love it, but they are kinda expensive.
What shipping is expected for one? I looked up some and saw anywhere from $75-$150 in shipping costs, tacked onto the $249 price tag for the TR25...Keep an eye on ebay for warn winches. a 2500 will be lots and you can get it delivered for about 300 - 400. When you get it shipped make sure it is USPS because UPS will gouge you on the brokerage fees. I get most of my aftermarket things from the states because it seems that all the local, guys are well above anywhere else I can find.
How is it? Which gorilla package did you get?heres mine. i have the gorilla installed
heres the mounting plate

I tried to buy from that seller, but he absolutely refused to send to Canada....so I had to get a friend in Ohio to buy it for me.its the 2500lbs one. yes i would recomend it. the ebay seller is outdoor2you and he is a very good guy. resonds very fast and the product is always as explained. i got the winch and mounting plate from him in seperate auctions, cos when i got mine the plate was not out yet, and after i got them he walked me through installing it. i have not had a problem with mine and its been under water, packed with snow, worked very hard and it still works great.
hope this helped
