    Winch for Smart car or utv

    Hi Everyone, A question came to my mind when reading the thread about getting parts ready for the deck of the truck that Dave (Mr.Cob) started. I was asking different questions about the parts needed for Smart car or a utv for the deck of the truck. My questions were mainly about what parts are needed. So I thought it would be better to start a new topic about where to mount the winch and what parts are needed. I also understand there is a group of people who drive there Smart car up on the deck. The only piece of equipment that I drove onto the deck of my first truck was my Polaris RZR. That was easy because I used 4 wheel drive in low range. The Smart cars don't have 4 wheel drive or low range. I don't want to burn up the clutch or damage the drive train. That is the reason for the questions and opinions needed. To a lot of you guys this is old hat. But I am still learning a lot about these trucks. I need opinions and ideas. There is no bad opinion or idea. I also think this thread could help anyone building their own deck. Here are some of my questions. Do you mount the winch on the truck or on the rear or front of the car ? What parts do you use to make the electrical connections for the winch ? Especially if you are using the winch mounted onto the car ? Do you use the car battery if the winch is used on the car ? If the winch is mounted on the truck deck do you use the truck batteries or a stand alone battery ? Has anyone made their winch portable for the deck of the truck ? Right now this is all the questions I have but I know more will come later. Al
