    I have been looking for winches this past month and have found that if I wanted to get an aftermarket winch I would have to do some wiring and install a switch box (as in Screw to frame) I don't want to do that. I have looked at the Regular Polaris winches but I did the check fit and none of...

    OK. My kids bought me a 3,500# HD winch kit for Father's Day. God bless them! My problem is, it isn't exactly made for my 2014 Sportsman 570. The winch part number is 2878789. The winch mounts up perfectly, but I'm having some issues with the wiring. Have any of you mounted a 2878789 winch...
