I already have a York under the hood and a perfectly good winch, so I am not in the market, but if I was......

Does it require moving your radiator to actually get some air flow?

I think it's pretty cool, it's a step into the combination of usefull tools in a pretty compact unit. but the price probally isn't very cheap,

I wonder if it could fit in an ARB bumper and if so, could it be plumbed in for your front/rear air lockers.

I was at the Off-Road Expo yesterday in Pomona and got to check out the winch. The build quality appears to be very good. The only drawback I could see would be the size and trying to fit it up front!
