One of the best things about owning a UTV is being able to personalize your ride with the various aftermarket UTV accessories that are on the market. You can add a windshield, a lift kit, cool bumpers, and more. However, there are a few accessories that every UTV should have.

The winch is one of those accessories. However, it is usually one of those items that you don’t quite think about buying until you are stuck in the mud and really need it. Here are some reasons you should buy a winch today.

Tackling the trails and stirring up dust on the backroads is perhaps the best part about driving your side-by-side. However, sometimes those roads get a little muddy and a little rocky. Whether you purposely drive through a mud hole or push your ride to go down a rocky hill, things get stuck. If you are alone on the trails in the middle of nowhere, things can get ugly fast. And when you add in extreme cold or hot temperatures, you could find yourself in real trouble. Having a durable winch allows you to quickly get unstuck without having to wait for help.

Winches aren’t just for getting you out of a sticky...or muddy situation. There are a lot of practical reasons for adding a winch to your UTV. Have you ever been in a situation where you have been hunting and made a prize-winning kill? If so, then you also understand how difficult it can be to move the heavy trophy when you are up on a hill or in a heavily wooded area. By adding a winch to your UTV when you hunt, it makes getting home a lot quicker and easier. Another practical reason for having a winch is to use it when clearing brush and removing tree stumps. Use safety measures and follow any manufacturer’s recommendations before using any powerful tools such as a winch.

It’s always a good time when you are out riding the trails with your family and friends. However, good times can quickly come to an end when someone in your party gets stuck. By having a winch nearby or attached to your SXS, you can easily be the hero by helping your friend or fellow UTV trail riding enthusiast get unstuck. Not only will you save the day, but helping out when you can is also good riding etiquette.
