The Bush Winch

I was youtubing earlier and ran across this, may be old news but I found nothing in the forum about it. Seems like this would be easy enough to make from an old rim.

From their website...

"1. The Bush Winch

Significant savings are offered by purchasing the kit as opposed to individual components:

Kit prices range from $897 to $974 including GST* + Postage & Handling."

All things considered, I'll keep my Warn, thank you.
Paved roads are just for getting you to the starting point!

That video is hilarious. "Even a female can carry it, and a female can even put it on the vehicle themselves. Easy A's (?). And they actually work well."

The early military HMMWV never had a winch on it. If you look at the center of the wheel hub, you will see a spot for a bar to be inserted and the wheel used as a winch in this manner.
Beat it to fit, paint it to match!
