**Always follow the instructions in your repair manual when doing repair or maintenance work on Outdoor Power Equipment. Manuals can be found at the manufacturers website.** In this video I show the finished installation of a Harbor Freight 3000 pound ATV UTV Winch part #68145 on a John Deere XUV 550. I performed the following modification to install the winch: 1) Drilled two holes in the mounting plate supplied with the winch so it would fit the platform on the front bumper. 2) Welded a support piece to the platform on the front bumper. 3) Fitted two steel support brackets to the solenoid supplied with the winch. 4) Made a steel conduit to run underneath the vehicle from the battery to the front end to protect the positive and negative cable going from the battery to the solenoid. 5) Drilled a hole through the firewall or plastic wall for the winch control which is mounted in the glove compartment. 6) Added rubber grommets to the holes in the glove compartment and the firewall or plastic wall. Thanks for watching!
