I saw the winch in my Rocky Mtn ATV catalog.

3.0 XT winch
Comes complete with synthetic rope w/ rock guard, powder coated red finish, mechaincal brake (I had that much right), minirocker and handheld remote. Winch mount not included.

All that for only $593.99

The regular 3.0 is $398.99, with everything but the mech. brake, popwdercoating and synthetic rope. That not a lot for an extra $200.

I have the standard warn 3.0 I love it. I have only need the brake (which it doesn't have) one time. I just bought amsteel blue winch rope for it. I don't like the wire rope it bites. If you can afford the XT buy the XT, but there is nothing wrong with the standard winch they should offer it with synthetic rope.

That is cool. Makes me rethink getting a winch. I did not want the extra weight on the front of my bike but with the synth rope it is not that heavy.
