    2002 Ranger: Adding a winch

    Hello, all. I'm considering adding a winch to my 2002 Ranger. Maybe I'm wrong, but it doesn't look like there's room to mount it directly behind the bumper. If not, where is it mounted? And, is it fairly easy to mount, or a real pain?

    Thanks,
    Brian

    Hello Brian
    I have a 2003 Polaris Ranger. I bought a winch mounting kit from Cabelas for mine and it fits perfect behind the bumper in the small upper grill opening. I also installed a Superwinch Terra 35 winch .Very easy to do,nothing to drill.I did make a plate under the seat next to the battery to mount the solenoids to so they are out of the way. Plenty of cable very straight forward.I can send you pictures if you would like.

    Hey, Joe. Thanks for the offer, but I got it all hooked up. I ran the wires under the hump and up to the battery, then mounted the solenoid on the frame in front of the dash. Lots of room for it there, and it won't get much weather. I didn't go big or expensive on the winch, as I'm not doing a lot of trail riding and mudding. Just need something for the occasional time when I need a little help. I put the Badland 2500-lb winch from Harbor Freight on it.

    Cheers,
    Brian
