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.

You'd definitely need lockers or a spool for that...

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.

I'd rather be lost on the trails than found at home!

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!
