    Warn 2000lb winch with synthetic rope and a snatch block.
    Instead of a power pack, just pick up one of the little solar panels and mount it to the roof, through a trickle charger, to the battery. Never have to worry about a dead battery again.

    I hope that is a misprint. 4000 pound winch minimum.

    i would HIGHLY recomend a 3500lb winch at least!! And a couple snatch blocks.. You can get that 3/16 spectre line from bj's in town for about 79 cent a foot. I would also recommend a warn. Aih has about the best deal going locally.
    I bought one of those fancy little batteries for atv's from batteries plus, i have the room so i carry it as a spare. I have already had to let someone borrow it because their machine battery was dead dead.
    If you plan on riding like i do, you would do best to not put solar panels on your roof! Not that it wouldnt work, but i probably would have it torn off in short order. You will be riding 4 wheeler trails that usually a wheeler can fit under branches easily, not so for the ranger! I carry a action packer at all times that has everything:
    battery
    400 foot of spectre(misc lengths with eyes)
    4 600 lb mini snatch blocks
    tools for everything on my machine
    oil
    gear lube
    manual
    first aid kit
    misc stuff, gorilla tape, zip ties, tie wire hose clamps, electrial tape
    goggles, dust masks
    rags
    slime air compressor
    slime
    flares
    ammo
    tarp
    mini blanket
    drive belt

    you get the idea... i ALWAYS carry a spare..
    keep us posted on how your doing and how you like that ranger!
