hey all... i just wanted to find out how many of u x owners out there have a winch and actual use it... often or not... i just was just wondering whether or not to start saving up for one... thanks
I've never had to use mine in about the same time frame. But that isn't the only point. It depends what you do. If you go to very remote spots alone or with one other vehicle, it will save you eventually. For some people, it's the last concern, but for others, I'd say sure, armor up first, but put a winch on the short list.Muzikman said:I have used my winch only a hand full of times since I put it on the X about 2 years ago. Yes, it's great insurance, but should be the last thing you think about.
Going into the backcountry these days without a GPS and detailed maps, a Gazeteer at the very least, is just plain inexcusable. You can get a perfectly serviceable GPS for around $100, and always know exactly where you are.BioTerra said:I'd put a quality GPS ahead of a lot of recovery gear like winches et cetera.
