Am installing a winch on my 4x4. Don't have any experience with ATV's and the use of winches on them. Winch won't be used with a plow, just getting unstuck when necessary.
My question is, what side do you install the winch controls on? Right so you can use the brake or left so you can use the gas.

Plus there is always the option to lock the brakes and a foot brake lever. Although with this past weekend being the first time I used mine to pull others out, the brakes didn't help at all. The gas helped alittle bit. I eventually had to ground myself out to pull them out because the winch just kept pulling me to them.
