This is my 2020 Rincon with a KFI winch mount and Warn 2500LB winch. I like the KFI mount because it mounts the winch higher in the frame. The Warn mount I had on my 2016 Rincon put the winch in the lowest possible point in the frame and it got every ounce of water and mud splashed on it. Not to mention in the winter it would completely freeze in a solid block of ice and you couldn’t operate the freespool clutch. I know the difference in height between the two mount setups isn’t huge but that little bit makes a big difference. Just my two cents for what works for me! Hope this helps.
Nylon rope? sure... it's crap when compared to Synthetic. However, in using synthetic winch rope, you do have to treat it a bit different, but it is in every way better than steel. When the sheath is installed properly, you can use it for years on your plow, and then go riding, get stuck and it works perfect, no steel cable stabs, and the stuff floats!
