  • Hitch mounted winch

    I use Domin8r Xtreme winch, 175 amps Anderson plugs, and 2 gauge wires from jumper cable

    The 2 gauge wire is from 6 metres length jumper cable. I think I got 1m left after cutting etc.

    I had to fabricate a U-shaped bracket to mount the winch control box.

    The winch's control box mounting itself needs to be hammered flat so the door clears.



    Now need to figure out how to install a hitch receiver at the front!

        many years ago, these were available commercially. you connected to the battery via a long set of jumper leads.
        to connect to the front, a bullbar with a hitch was required ( common with boaters) , or a sling to front recovery points.
        They were marketed as being versatile as you can winch back , front or side. also can share with friends and is a "winch for life " as when you sell your car, you keep the winch.
        I reckon its a great idea, why dont they sell them anymore
