Winch insatllation?

#1 Postby Maaks » Wed Feb 08, 2012 3:00 am

Have anyone seen winch installed on Tucson?
I was thinking on something small as 1,5T maybe?
I am sometimes wondering around on small tracks, alone, and it would give more confidence to try unknown conditions :-)

I have a Tirfor type Winch manual hand operated 800KG (Lifting) it works well on the v6 GLS auto. the front recovery eyes are rated for recovery but you would have to change the tow ball to a pin and tow ball hitch eg. (http://www.towbarandtrailercentre.com/p ... 5378-p.asp) this will be adaquate to recover the tucson from the front and rear.

You are welcome. Please share some pictures once you install your winch. Looks like it going to be second Tucson with winch installed in the world :)
Thanks,
Ma®io
