YOU never know when you're going to need winch and recovery support, so ensure your equipment is up to scratch.
IRONMAN 4X4 RECOVERY POINTS: 2018+ JIMNY
Ironman 4x4 has released rated recovery points to suit 2018+ Suzuki Jimny vehicles. The recovery points – powdercoated red and compatible with Ironman 4x4 bullbars – are designed to be fitted in pairs to allow the use of an equalisation strap and multiple attachment points. The radius edge of the points has also been redesigned so that any shackle, including soft shackles, can be used. Each recovery point has a working load limit of 3500kg, and they’re designed to connect to a recovery device via a 4.75t shackle (or rated soft shackles). All units are NATA tested and approved.
CARBON OFF ROAD HIDDEN WINCH MOUNTS
Carbon Off Road has added in-bumper winch cradles to its range of accessories, allowing you to mount a winch to your 4x4 without the need to fit a heavy bullbar. To maintain the OE look of a vehicle, the cradles generally mount behind the vehicle’s bumper. With a range to suit Toyota, Ford, Mitsubishi, Volkswagen and Isuzu vehicles, the Carbon Off Road winch cradles weigh between 10 to 15kg (depending on application) and come complete with instructions.
WARN M8274 WINCH
Warn has revealed new and improved versions of its legendary M8274 and M8274-S winches, now with a pulling capacity of 10,000lb. Formerly capped at 8000lb, the extra 2000lb of pulling power is achieved courtesy of a new high-output 6hp motor. In addition, Warn has switched from solenoid control to an Albright contactor, and it has improved the units’ durability by adding a stainless-steel clutch handle, two Oilite bushings and a bolt-and-washer assembly – replacing the retaining ring – on the brake shaft. The upgraded winches are also now available with the option of either Spydura synthetic rope or steel rope.
