  2. Sportsman 850 HighLifter Winch Mount???

    Polaris Highlifter
    I am trying to locate a mount for a viper elite 3500 winch for my 2018 850 HighLifter. Moto Alliance does not offer a mount that would work with the 2017-18 model. I also tried the KFI 850 mount and that also would not work as it was a very tight fit and the spool was hitting the front...
