    Has anyone upgraded their trailer winch to something like this:http://www.fultonperformance.com/con...id=7920&part=0

    We did a group buy in 12 with Fulton and the winch was an option and I got it. I think mine is called a F2 1400 it's similar to the 1600. I think it's a great upgrade and much better then the original.

    I had that small one on my last boat, I've got the 3200 2 speed in the garage now waiting to be installed. The F2's are nice!

    I had the fulton on my old supra and loved it. great quality product. didn't get much out of the 2-wheeled tongue jack tho. it broke pretty quickly and replacement wheels were $32 each.

    I got a cracked wheel too. It doesn't respond to well to trying to move it on rough payment.

    the dual wheel setup doesn't move very well at all, and that was on my single axle boatmate trailer. I was less than impressed with the dual wheel setup from a quality standpoint. but it did get a lot of bling points...

    Here's what the Fulton winch looks like on the Mojo...

    This is the 3200 lb model. I think it looks great and works great. It still wont budge the boat when it's out of water but it does very well at snugging things up on the ramp.

    Winch looks great! BTW, if you are trying to get more height out of your fulton jack, the height of the mounting bracket is adjustable.

    Thanks for the tip, I'll take a look at that. Driveway is a little steep and like to keep it at least level.

    Had her out for the first time yesterday... Still a little cold here in IA!

    Yep, the F2 jack looks nice, but it is pure junk. The wheels are made from cheap garbage Barbie plastic.

    They should switch over to a more durable type of plastic.
