Rich I want to make a mounting bracket and mount a winch behind my oem alloy bar. Do you think it is possible with the X9?Gday Danny, I had an X9 on a hilux I once had at it would work all day with out a problem. It even pulled a large tree from a dam up a bank with out skipping a beat. I think you have done well for that price! I would have kept mine when the hilux made its way to the NT but I wanted to have a winch box that was rececesed into the bar.
I would love to buy a Tigerz or some other better brand but for the very small use it 'may' get used I just cant justify the cost when I can get a cheapy for around $300.
So this X9 should be better value than a Chinese winch going by my research.
