    Full Size Ranger Discussion

  6. Synthetic rope vs cable?

    General Discussion
    What is everyone's thoughts on a synthetic rope vs cable on your winch? I have a polaris 4500 pound winch and when I bought my 2013 crew last week it was supposed to have rope but had cable. When I asked about it I was told they didn't make a 4500# rope only a 3500. I saw today on polaris...

  10. Using front winch to load rear bed

    Full Size Ranger Discussion
    I'm wondering if anyone has any ideas about how to use the front winch to load stuff in the bed of a ranger. I'm mainly having problems loading deer in the bed by myself. I'm thinking of rigging some rollors up and attaching them to the roll bars to run the winch rope over the ranger. I have...
