Hey guys, I kind of need some help. Someone gave me a brand new winch the other day and I need to get a winch mount for my 4wheeler. I just bought a 2014 sportman 400 ho. I went to the Polaris dealership but they basically told me I couldnt buy just the mount without buying a winch that comes with the mount from them. I keep looking on different sites for winch mounts but the pictures of them keep changing up and Im not sure which one I need. Anyway can someone please post a link to whichever mount and whatever else I would need to get this winch on my 4wheeler? Thanks, I really appreciate it!

Winches are pretty universal. I have moose mounts on our machines and have not had any issues. Others like the KFI brand. There are several more. You DO NOT have to buy a winch and a mount together, and they do not have to be the same brand.
as long as its made for your machine you'll be good to go

Thanks for responding. Yeah the guys at the dealership saying that just did not sound right to me. They also said if they ordered it, it would be a warn and would cost $100 just for the mount but they also were saying polaris doesnt like people using after market parts and that polaris changes them up every year to make it harder for companies to make after market parts for them. I was just standing there thinking that "warn is an after market part and what the hell is this guy talking about". Anyway could you or someone tell me the best place to get what I need as far as price and reliability?

Try any of the forum sponsors, Dennis Kirk, or RVSperformance.com. should only have to spend about 50$

You don't have to buy a Polaris winch and mount and you don't need to buy the winch and mount from the same manufacturer.

My KFI mount cost $45 and the Superwinch inside was only $130... From Amazon. There are several forum sponsors and trusted online retailers that sell winches and mounts. One of the Harbor Freight, of all places, Badlands winches has gotten some good reviews.

They all bolt right up.

Badland is the kind someone gave me the other day and its brand new. I was going to what awhile before I put one on but you cant beat free. I'll look into a KFI mount I just hate ordering stuff and it not being what I need and going through that whole process of having to send stuff back. Im a newb and I have no clue when it comes to stuff like this
