How to send it on your next 4WD Adventure!

November 27, 2020   |   By Liam Arthur How to send it on your next 4WD Adventure! - image winches on https://www.4wdsupacentre.com.au/news


When you are heading into the bush, for a sneaky little wheel, there is a lot of temptation that must be resisted particularly when alone, thanks to the lack of support if you get stuck, you might be stuck for good, which is not as fun as it sounds, particularly if you were only heading out with minimal supplies and not planning on staying the night in the bush.

The best reassurance when you are heading into the bush, is to rig your 4WD up with a reliable 12,000lb winch, like the Kings Domin8r Xtreme Winch, this beast is extremely powerful and offers 4WDers some peace of mind when heading into the bush.

If you have never used a winch before, a 12,000lb winch offers a massive amount of pull, equating to a touch under 5.4 tons of pulling force from the front of your 4WD, which comes in extremely handy when coupled with a rated recovery kit, giving you another mate on the tracks 100% of the time.

By slapping a winch on the front of your vehicle you can even earn yourself a beer or even a case if you need to rescue someone. A winch will make you everyone’s best mate and can be installed in an afternoon with only 4 bolts (included) and 5x wire leads.

 

By slapping a winch on the front of your vehicle you can even earn yourself a beer or even a case if you need to rescue someone. A winch will make you everyone’s best mate and can be installed in an afternoon with only 4 bolts (included) and 5x wire leads. With a simple installation and some easy wiring, you can practically and virtually instantly upgrade your 4WD in just an afternoon, using basic hand tools and very limited mechanical and electrical knowledge.

The next step to using your winch is learning how it works. By testing your winch before you need to use it in anger, this might involve finding a gentle hill pointing your 4WD uphill (preferably towards a sturdy anchor points) whipping out your recovery kit, and unrolling your tree trunk protector and wrapping it around a good solid tree. With the tree trunk protector, around the tree you can simply hook your winch hook through the sewn loops to reduce the amount of rigging in your setup and drape the included recovery blanket over the top of your hook to provide the most safety and protection for your faux winch recovery. Now with your winch set up, the clutch mechanism engaged, and the in line battery isolator connected, all you need to do is press the winch in button and your winch will effortlessly tow your 4WD up the hill, but if you are planning on pulling your vehicle up hill, put your vehicle in neutral, drop the handbrake and leave the engine idling otherwise you may find it struggles to start next time you need it.
