    Red Winch...Does yours freespool easily?

    My factory Red winch does not freespool easily. You cannot physically pull the rope out without incredible effort , The first time I used it it had to attach it to another vehicle and reverse the vehicle. Now I just reverse the motor to extend the rope. What's your experience? Is this...

    3rd party Videos Rigging The Factory Winch

    We just put up our latest video which deals with rigging the factory winch so that you are able to use it. We show the Red Winch recommended set up as well as the alternative we chose which is the Factor 55 Flat Link E. Both set ups would work and the craftsmanship of both Red Winch and Factor...

    Aftermarket winch to US spec Trialmaster

    Searched a bit but ran out of gas… I have a truck on order with the winch option, but am reconsidering as the aftermarket solutions come in to play. I’m wondering if I forego the winch option, what is different with respect to the wiring of a Trialmaster versus a Trialmaster with winch...

    Using the Winch (Power on, Pair Remote Control, Relais Behaviour, etc.) - Ultimate Manual no long thread!

    Here we go with the ultimate technical INFO: 1. Start Motor (does not work if Engine off) 2. apply Handbrake 3. Switch to Gear N (Neutral) - maybe D/R will work also 4. Never drive above ~70 km/h 5. Switch the 500 A Switch on, you will hear a loud click in the backseat if ok. Try it with P and N...

    Winch not working?

    Hi all, my winch is not working. I'm doing everything the manual says to do and t was working at the agents when I picked it up. I've tried everything. The only thing that I can think I did wrong was try to pair it again when it was already paired. I have the green light on the remote, engine...

    Winch problem

    My Winch regularly stops working. After switching off and on again both overhead 500amp switch and remote it works again. Had this several times with and without load. So it is not overheating i assume. Did you experience similar problems? Maybe a problem with the remote? Btw. where is the fuse...

    Winch installed

    Today I got my winch and bumper installed (LeTech Kit). I am so much looking forward to test it tomorrow 👍🏻👍🏻😂! What I really like already is the quality and design of the bumper and that one has easy access to the winch.

    Americas Moveable winch

    I got the winch installed on the hitch receiver today. Now I need to figure out how to wire it to the grenadier. I can’t find a 100% answer on if we have the 500a circuit if we didn’t order the winch but have the high output circuit (on all trialmasters). Has anyone done this yet? I’m also...

    Front Mounted Tow Hitch/Winch options in UK?

    What options are available in the UK for a removable front mounted tow hitch and removeable front mounted winch? I've seen some aftermarket options online but wondered if any are suitable for use in the UK given different regulations?

    Winch + Factor 55 Ultrahook = collision alert

    I installed a Factor 55 Ultrahook on my winch and pulled slack on the rope so the Ultrahook sits tight and flush with the fairlead. Now I'm getting collision alerts on the tell-tale. This morning, on my first drive after Ultrahook installation, there was this loud warning sounds I hadn't heard...

    Factory Front Winch bracket / cradle?

    Alternative winch?

    Are there any other suppliers apart from the LeTech winch? I have cancelled the original winch from Ineos as the cable length of only 10m was too short for me.

    Winch wiring Question?

    In models ordered without the winch, is the wiring harness for the winch installed at build if you ask for the high load circuitry? Do Grenadiers with winches get entirely different wiring harnesses? or is is an easily added dealer option? (which implies the vehicle prewired for the winch) I...

    Ok so wonder if anyone has come across this and if so identified the issue and resolved it. When I turn the winch switch on on the overhead panel I hear a click from rhe rear, but the light doesn’t come on on the switch and the controller won’t pair, by which I assume no power getting to the...

    Winch rope

    As we now know, the usable length of winch rope is between 10-12m, and is 11mm diameter. Looking at winch ropes, it is possible to get a 10mm winch rope with a min breaking strength of 10,950kg. This would give a WLL of just above the Grenadier GVM. I wonder how much difference going from...

    Front bumper / No winch

    European winch cover do it yourself screw replacement

    I replaced today the screws of my "numberplate winch cover". The idea behind it was that it is way too easy to remove the original cheap screws of Ineos, and therefore reach the winch. Here the final solution with the new screws and old ones: So what did I do? I found at my sons place nice...

    winch question confirmation...

    So, as I understand it, the winch is a redwinch, which has no parts availability or network in the US, it's a custom small spool similar to a competition winch and falls far below the typical 90+ft, no other winch will fit the stock cradle, and the insufficient winch is likely to be a 5k...

    Just looked at the Hard way home guy Ingmar's video on the winch seems you have to have the engine running . This means if the engine won't work for some reason you can't winch yourself out of trouble all my winches have been independent of the engine. What are the forums thoughts?
