Just in the process of fitting front and rear rescue points on my Gen3v5 which look great, can’t wait to get them on.

I also bought the in bumper invisible winch mounting and was wondering which models people have had good experiences with? There are loads on eBay but I am sceptical about quality and safety.

Any views?

I have a Winchmax 13500 which has proven reliable (apart from the wireless remote, but I dont use that anyway). There is also Goodwinch. Both are apparently UK manufacturers. Winchmax is a fair bit cheaper and slower but does get the job done.

also... make sure you get synthetic rope rather than steel with alloy hawse to match. Its much safer if anything goes wrong (even the cheap chinese stuff is safer than a badly maintained steel cable from what ive seen)
