The project I'm involved with at the moment is mounting a small electric winch on the rack that carries my Yamaha WR450 on the back of the Arctic Fox, so that I will be able to winch the motorcycle up on the rack if I'm in a situation where pushing it up is too difficult.
I bought the little 2500 pound capacity winch at harbor freight for about $65 I don't need one nearly that strong but that was the smallest winch they had. I figured that if I can push the 270 pound Yamaha up a ramp onto the rack that it shouldn't take much of a winch to do the job.
I had a piece of square tubing welded to the bottom of the winch that was just the right size to slide over the existing square tubing on a piece that keeps the motorcycle from rolling off the rack. So now I can take the winch off and on the rack as needed with no tools involved.
There's a few ways that I could use to power the winch, such as hooking it up to the truck battery with alligator clips or mounting a 12 Volt battery on the motorcycle rack some way. But in an effort to keep things as simple as possible I ran a number six wire from the battery box in the front of the Arctic Fox to a 12 Volt cigarette lighter plug that I mounted in the back of the Arctic Fox. So now, as soon as I can get one, I will put a 12 Volt cigarette lighter male plug on the winch so I can quickly and easily slide the winch off of the square tubing, unplug the cigarette lighter plug and store the whole thing inside the Arctic Fox.
I don't believe that would work if I had a regular Walmart type cigarette lighter plug because I don't think it would carry the 15 amps I need to run the winch, so earlier I ordered a Marine grade 15 amp cigarette lighter plug off Amazon which I'm hoping will be okay. If I were trying to pull a heavy load with the winch I would need far more amps than that. But I think just trying to pull the motorcycle up the ramp should be no strain at all for the winch.
Oh and I forgot to mention that the winch has a wireless remote that I can hold while guiding the Yamaha up the ramp, without that remote this whole project wouldn't work.
